    Looks like an overage Russian goalie who put up exceptional numbers in the KHL. Don't know much about him tbh

    An older goalie prospect isn't a bad idea.

    You never know with goalies but he had a very good season in the KHL. Posted ten shutouts and showed massive improvement

    I wonder if he will take over the starting role from Koskinen by the end of next season

    I don't completely hate the pick, overager but might be closer as result? Had pretty decent numbers in the KHL.

    Torn on this one. He’s very talented and won the KHL rookie of the year, but he’s also a double overager and very small by NHL standards. We also have roughly a billion prospect goalies. Ah well.

    I dont actually get this pick. We have Starret, Skinner and Rodrigue. That reasonable goalie depth already. I guess Konovalov can continue to light it up in KHL, wont actually take up a spot in Bakersfield... but you'd think we could get more depth elsewhere.

    While I guess his stats are good enough for a 3rd, decent upside, I just dont know how we're gonna be able to give them all a fair shot at NHL.

    Somebody should tell Neilson about the massive age difference between Koskinen and Konovalov.
    For comparison purposes it matters.
