Info will be nice, thanks.
Sergei Ostapchuk is among the best prospects after the ones drafted this summer and Chudinov and a bunch of others. At this point you should know that he was born in Novopolotsk, Belarus, and then moved to Russia at very young age.
He is an offensive forward with smooth skating and good technique, who is yet to break the pro's game also because of Heikkila's worriness about playing young blood. He had a good junior career, but his stock got down a bit after he couldn't represent Russia after some documents troubles.
The guy has all the tools to become a high caliber player, but must play more consistently and this is not given that it will happen this season seeing his coach view on youngsters and also the fact that in HC Lokomotiv already skate many very good, yet young, players.
