    Looks more like terrible defense to me.

    You can put him where you like in your rankings, and I'll put him where I like in my rankings.

    Watching him in the Bronze game rn, This guys good, real good.

    In additon to all the goals and offense, he's an absolute horse on the PK and is shutting down Americas entries and creating shorthanded chances.

    Has a nice edge to his game, has got the puck back a few times in his own zone with good reads and tight checking.

    this goal happened because he made a seam pass on the backhand through the box which opened the ice up.

    He skates with some power. He keeps the puck despite contact.

    Unreal....he just scored again for a hat trick after Americans cut the deficit to 1 late. Coast to coast goal beating several US players.

    Shades of Tarasenko the way he skates with power and his combo of dangles and ability to anticipate plays? His power and skill is fantastic (obviously for this level).

    Legendary tournament from this kid. He’ll be in the mix right at the top after Hughes.

    Have to think he gets a KHL look at some point in 2018-19, no? He'll be too good for the MHL one would think.

    Amazing tournament for him, highlight reel goal after highlight reel goal.

    Really looks like a complete player with no glaring weaknesses, and high end offensive skills. Could see him cracking the top 5 even in what looks to be a deep draft with lots of centers.

    Wow! My only concern with him is how he will do against older competition. I would say his only weakness in my eyes is his straight-forward speed. He seems to have a great tool-box of talent and could see him as a top 5 pick.

    He processes the game at such high speeds too. There were two plays in the 2nd, where he stole it off a US player in the neutral zone and sprung Nikolayev on golden chances off quick technical passes.

    That is just like Datsyuk. Lacks speed yeah, but the puck just keeps coming on his control through traffic.

    I believe he's broken the goals record and tied the points record, no? He's been incredible. Two of those individual effort goals were right after the opponent scored late in the third period too.

    He's from the system, that doesn't have its MHL team, that's why he was traded to SKA.
