    I haven't heard of this guy until I read X-sharkie's mock draft. Any information about him would be appreciated. (Upside, size, type of player, team, etc). How come nobody is talking about him?

    He is projected to go 2nd round...but could sneak into the 1st...sick skills.

    Probably his biggest knock is his reluctance to use his teammates and to pass. I've seen instances where he just won't get rid of the puck. Other than that a fine prospect.

    I can't really make a good analysis about him since I only saw him once (Orr vs Cherry) but I can tell you that for the most part of this game he was invisible (first two periods) and then at the end of the third he unleashed some great dekes to fake off two players one after another and it almost led to a goal. Nice set of hands on this kid.

    Too bad he won't get to play for Denmark (he wanted to but couldn't get citizenship in time) because with the prospects they have been producing lately he might have been what they needed to take the team to the next level.

    Slava is 6'1" 195lbs,an above average skater and stickhandler.I' d agree with the
    poster that said he could pass more at times but overall he's pretty good and
    compared to some other first year Russians in the Q he has adjusted well to the N.A. game and is pretty good defensively for a European.I've talked to him
    and he speaks good English and he seems to have a very good attitude.

    I hope that is of some help to you.

    He plays for PIE's QMJHL team.

    I don't know if you should consider him Russian in his training though PEI fan, aparantly he's lived most of his life in Denmark and played most if not all of his hockey except there. Except this year of course.

    Aparantly he even wanted to play for Denmark at the U-18's but couldn't get citizenship in time so is playing for Russia instead.

    If you followed the 04 crop, Trukhno is comparable to Korpikoski. I like the finn a tad better, but both are stickhandling wiz. If Trukhno learns to play a better team game he will be a amazing player, but he needs to do that because he is a puck hog.

    Just a quick note: He was selected on the preliminary Russian roster for the U18 WJC (I posted the whole roster on the Russian board). He could really bring something to the Russian team. His father is a Russian hockey player who played in Denmark I believe.
