    I think he's in the CHL next year. Nice pick. I like it. Safe-ish player but still has good upside with it. If comes over right away that would be huge.

    I wanted him at 18. This is why I'm not a GM.

    This is such a fantastic pick, I'm so pumped we got a high second out of it too. Really excited for Rubtsov.

    FC has him as a top 6 two way center. Will score points and play defense.

    Love this pick

    So so so happy with this pick. I would've been happy with him at 18... but we also have a really early 2nd too! Hextall is killing it.

    So how does it work with MHL guys? Is he able to technically go right to the AHL or is he MHL/KHL or NHL only? Follow up...if he's AHL eligible, is that where he goes?

    I had 3 players I wanted at 18. He was the 3rd. Flyers able to trade back and still get him. Kid has huge skill and upside.

    Safe pick with upside. The first impression he left on me was a good one. Dominate in the WJAC. Hard to go wrong picking the best 18 year old in Russia. Flyers broke their CHL streak but he was talking about coming over to the CHL- find out next week.

    I believe there's a contract issue with Rubtsov, but if he comes to North America, he would be eligible for the AHL or CHL. IIRC, there's interest in him playing in the CHL.

    It's strange for me being older than a player being drafted into the NHL.
