    I was wondering what anybody knows about him. I'm not very fluent in French I understand it somewhat and my browser sucks so I can't translate the QMJHL page but he seems to be doing well. Better than Grigorenko in fact with 20 points in 14 games. Where is he projected to go n his draft year and is he 2012 eligible. What is the scouting report on this kid?

    He is 2012 eligible.


    He was mentioned in Future Considerations' Ivan Hlinka article:

    He's first round material for sure.
     
  4. 20 in 14 is better than 19 in 12? I never knew.

    Anyways, yeah he's got good hands for sure. 1st round talent, probably drop to 2nd cause of his birth certificate.

    He has amazing vision and slickness with the puck...i like that aspect more than his scoring ability...speed to me is good, but not great...

    Good prospect, but he wont go 1st rd...hes on the smaller side, 5'11 170 and hes Russian...

    Oh ok...I thought you were inferring he had a doctored Birth Certificate with an incorrect age.

    Which I find odd because he's playing in the Q. Namestnikov and Khokhlachev both played in the OHL last year and it didn't really hurt their draft status.

    Oh whoops I didn't see how many games Grigorenko had played..yeah that's my fault but still 20 in 14 is pretty good but I don't know much about Rouyn-Noranda to determine whether its inflated or he's doing a lot of the scoring by himself? How's his speed? His hockey IQ? etc?

    Speed is average id say, he kind of lacks that explosiveness but it will come once he gets stronger...and his hockey sense is very good.

    Also his linemates right now are Sven Andrighetto and Marcus Power...Andrighetto is from Switzerland...undrafted 18 year old and Power is a rookie 18 year old...and Kamaev makes that line run.

    Exactly. Kamaev is playing for a weak team compared to Grigorenkov and his linemates are nothing to write about.

    However, he is quite small in size which makes it hard to predict how his talent will translate in the NHL playing against bigger guys.

    Regardless of which one ends up with more points, most likely Grigorenkov will be a top pick because of his size while Kamaev will probably drop to a 10 or 12th pick.

    Kamaev still has the build of a kid who hasnt worked out in his life...im not sure if thats the case, but he isnt very strong currently...

    And I dont think he goes 10-12...its a very deep draft...and with his question marks begin that hes smaller, weaker and from Russia...all of those things will make him drop come draft day.

    He would be a very good 2nd round pick.
