Filatov is a speedy guy. I watched him at the World Junior tournament and he really impressed me. He's only 160lbs right now, but I think you can expect him to put on weight as he matures. McKenzie says, "Extremely talented, but inconsistent and there's always the Russian factor at work. He was No. 9 in the preseason rankings."

In the games I watched, he was really working hard, going to the net and digging pucks out of the corners. TSN lists him as the 10th best prospect, but CSS has him as the #1 European skater and ISS moved him up to #2 overall behind Stamkos in February.
