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.
When you say that he's the best prospects after the ones drafted this summer, do you mean the NHL draft or the CHL draft ?
