Scouting Report
The rangy (62) defenseman has the size to play a physical game in the NHL, though he needs to get stronger. Has not put up the kind of offensive numbers in the NHL that he did in his native Russia, but he is a decent passer and puck mover capable of playing major minutes. He has to develop more consistency.
Long Range Potential: Inconsistent, minute-munching defenseman.
