Scouting Report
The Russian forward was an instant smash hit after arriving in the NHL from the KHL. He is a tremendous skater, both fast and quick, and can make plays at high speeds. He has great hockey smarts and on-ice awareness, and a good idea of when to pass and when to shoot. Shorter than most NHL forwards, his strong lower body helps him win puck battles. He makes everyone on the ice with him dangerous, and he is also effective in shootouts.
Long Range Potential: Elite offensive winger.
