“Ye...” is correct Russian transliteration
Watched a game and a half to get a vibe. Reminds me a bit of a more compact Sushko. He doesn't look or play as slight as his listing though (read: t h i c c). Of course his numbers are as good as any of Sushko's post-draft seasons, despite Serdyuk being a QMJHL rookie. Not quite as physically toolsy though, but he's got developmental years ahead.
I can recite you the team leading points stat line (usage definitely didn't feel that high though) and summer birthday, but nothing really stands out skill-wise, though he's a competent, versatile forward across the board at that level. Average+ skater, good shot, moves the puck well enough, solid hockey sense, positionally sound. I personally didn't see any compete/intensity issues (watched playoff games). I'd give him the Hextall "future bottom 6" label too, maybe a good AHLer; there's nothing crazy here projection-wise. But an interesting package for a 6th. Beats Gavin Hain.
Good value pick. High floor guy who could fill a bottom-6 roster spot down the road. Not flashy at all but don't forget we are talking rd 6.
Looks like he was a standout for Russia as a u17 - #18 3g and 1a
Had a really tough year with injuries... but found this interesting:
I'm enjoying your recent draft history research. Good stuff, sir.
Thanks! Just CHL forwards for now... might do USHL next and see if same "brackets" etc apply as similar level leagues really. Then start on Euro leagues, though that is trickier.
Some things that really, really stand out and make no sense in terms of why NHL teams still do the same things they do, when have years of data that shows they are making low % plays, and ignoring some guys until later rounds who really have quite high chances of success. There are some every draft...
it should be like it ever was.... or in other words old man doing old man things
