Yeah can you tell me what is the potentiel of this guy in the nhl please.
Was really highly thought of a few years ago. Then I believe his father died and kinda put hockey on the back-burner to his family. Needs to put on weight before he does anything. Is fairly skilled offensively and if he does make it to the NHL, it will most likely be on the 2nd line. The guys got potential though. Could be a boom-or-bust type prospect.
He's clever and passionate. I think he'll find his way into the NHL.
His upside is as a 50-60 point producing second liner. He reminds me a little of Segei Nemchinov, a bit undersized when he was younger with fire and the ability to make a play when called upon.
I think the blues got a steal snagging him in the third round. This guy is gonna be good.
Here is what hosckeysfuture are saying about him:
A player with hockey in his blood, Alexandrov is the son of former Soviet-era standout Boris Alexandrov. He's not the biggest player at 5'11, 183 pounds, but his skill level makes him a force to be reckoned with on the ice. Alexandrov is an explosive skater and playmaker who likes to drive to the net and can create at top speed, and his work ethic and determination to succeed are second to none. Alexandrov made a big move in the Central Scouting European rankings for the 2004 draft, going from 20th at mid-term to eighth in the final rankings, and at 18 years old already has two seasons under his belt in the Russian Superleague with Novokuznetsk. The Blues will be patient with him and allow him to develop in Russia for at least another year, with an eye towards having him bulk up a little in preparation for the North American grind.
