    Oh, he's from Belarus, interesting pick. Seems like another skilled player we got here, which is great. 11 pts in 17 play-off games this season with Owen Sound.

    Hasn't Hextall been pretty decent with goalie picks? I'm don't remember how many of our prospects he took or Holmgren took.

    There's already a thread for the goalie pick, albeit that I have zero clue why people are bummed about that pick.

    Happy they picked someone with upside here and with speed. Always want someone with upside and they've been drafting a lot of size so I like seeing them deviate from that sometimes.

    That means he gets to play in World Juniors top division this year. They were promoted.

    I'm going to go back and watch him soon and see what's to like. I really don't have much of a real opinion on him, having been buried on OS.

    I was going through his stats month by month and before he left for World Juniors he was putting up some really nice numbers.

    In October he had 11 points (6 goals) in 12 games but more importantly he had 38 shots on goal during the month. For whatever reason when he returned, he never approached these numbers again. Possible demotion in the lineup?

    I saw someone tweet during the draft something about how he's a much better pick than he first appears and he's someone they could see having a huge jump in points next year.

    He certainly looks like he has some nice tools. Good acceleration, shot, and hands.

    Great start to the WJC.

    Thought as well during the game... Owen Sound are not exactly doing great... and Belarus are at the World Champs in summer.

    Wonder if he ends up making his senior NT bow in Denmark. Sharangovich was there last year and one of the better players for Belarus... and Sushko has looked the same level or even better through two games.

    Sushko has a chance to be a player. I'd compare him to Raffl (who I really like). Good speed, size, strength, skill and should be a role player who can play up and down the lineup. Plays the point on the PP. Will need AHL time but another asset in the pipeline.
