Tarasenko's skill set reminds me more of David Perron than TJ Oshie, although Tarasenko is more of a shooter than both of them. Perron plays a more aggressive game in the offensive zone than Oshie, and thats how Tarasenko likes to play. Also, at least in the WJC, Tarasenko was a bit of a cherry picker in the defensive zone, and Perron has a tendency to be the first one out of the zone as well.
Tarasenko and Lehtera are 2nd and 3rd in KHL scoring at the moment. Tarasenko's tied for the lead in goals though.
