    Off to a hot start with 4g 1a in his first 2 games and could be an underrated prospect. Thought he might go to the OHL but is committed to Michigan State for next season, might be a prospect worth following if he keeps it up.

    He looks a little taller than listed at 6'2, and his wrist / slap / snap shot package is very nice... Large potential to rise with a good year.

    I wonder if he sneaks his way into the first round. Definitely a second rounder at worst right now.

    7 points in 3 games now. At the U17's, looks like his numbers were right inline with the other top Russian young guns (Podkolzin, Gutik, Guskov, Spiridonov, Gushchin, Zaitsev). Pretty interesting that 2 of those guys (Afanasyev and Gushchin) have followed Svechinkov's footsteps to the Muskegon club in the USHL and they are joint top scorers with 7 points. The Lumberjacks also have a third Russian, Yakovenko, who is older and not really an NHL prospect but has already been a regular at the VHL level in Russia.

    I've asked this before but never saw an answer...does Muskegon have a coaching or scouting connection to Russia that they've been able to land 3 high-profile Russian youth talents?

    Rights just traded to Windsor. I wonder if Windsor has a deal in place to bring him over next year.

    I don’t know how he’s not a consensus top 40 pick for some people, I have him in my 1st round.

    He seems to be a polarizing prospect.

    Some view him as a 1st rounder, some don’t even list him in the first 3 rounds.

    It will be interesting to see where he goes.

    Just expert analysis here, given that he is Windsor property. It’s so hard to google
