Vishnevskiy's scouting report Hockey Future
2005-06: Vishnevskiy was selected 68th overall in the 2005 CHL Import Draft by the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies and made an impact for them right away. He had nearly point per game from the blue line and earned a spot on the QMJHLís Rookie All-Star Team (and in the CHL Top Prospects game). However, he was a surprise omission from the Russian U18 World Championships team. His departure for North America probably had a lot to do with the decision to leave him off the squad. Vishnevskiy did play for Team Russia (í88) in the Five Nations Tournament.

2006-07: The Stars used their first-round pick (27th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft to select Vishnevskiy. He returned to the Huskies and once again lead the clubís defensemen in points. He made some minor strides towards improving his defensive play and jumped from a plus-1 to a plus-9 -- scoring less on a worse team. Vishnevskiy also appeared in two games for Russia in the ADT Canada-Russia Challenge.

2007-08: On July 18, 2007, the Stars signed Vishnevskiy to a three-year entry-level deal. He was returned to Rouyn-Noranda once more where he had a point per game (45 in 45) but did not have as strong of a playoffs. He was nominated as a second-team QMJHL All-Star for his regular season efforts however. He also joined the Russian team for six games in Canada-Russia Jrs. Super Series, but only notched one goal during the series. Vishnevskiy was once again left off the World Juniors (U20) roster, this time because of a knee injury.
2008-09: Vishnevskiy got his first taste of professional hockey with the Peoria Rivermen this season. His numbers werenít exactly awe-inspiring (19 points and a minus-5 in 67 games). For much of his time in Peoria, his play wasnít exactly inspired either. Vishnevskiy seemed almost bored with his time in the AHL. If thereís one thing that kept him busy, however, it was improving his defensive play over the course of the year Ė which he did. But it wasnít until he was recalled to Dallas for the last three games of the season did we see whatís to come for the talented and dynamic Vishnevskiy.

Talent Analysis
A fluid skater, Vishnevskiy has all the offensive tools to become a powerplay quarterback in the NHL. Heís undersized and only average in his own end, two things that will work against him at the professional level. However, he has the vision and skill set that enable him to be a great puck-mover. Reads plays well and has the skating ability to stay in the play defensively, but isnít consistent enough in that regard. Needs to figure out a way to handle power forwards effectively.


Potential: Second pairing offensive defenseman and power play quarterback, similar to Lubomir Visnovsky.

With Sergei Zubovís future in some question, Vishnevskiy may have shown enough in his short stint to be penciled into the 2009-10 Stars starting lineup.
