Scouting Report
A big point producer in Russia throughout his career, he has performed very well for his country on the international stage. Is an elusive playmaker with great puck skills and a very cerebral mindset. There are few players with his ability to distribute the puck. Is rather slight at 5-9, 163 pounds, so he must prove capable of withstanding the rigors of the North American game and schedule in order to maximize output in the National Hockey League. Is a bit of a wild card and a late-blooming talent.
Long Range Potential: Talented, diminutive playmaking winger.
