He's a LW/RW with good size at 6'3, 197. Was ranked 19th by Central Scouting's mid-term list but ended ranked 32nd in their final rankings. Him only appearing in 50 games in the OHL could have impacted his final ranking.
He's a really interesting player, but I would not draft him unless we trade down! He's maturing, but right now he's a very streaky player! Zharkov is a safer choice compared to Slepyshev, but I think Slepyshev could drop to the 3rd round...

If we trade down we could also take a chance on Andreas Athanasiou! Interesting player with some high-end skills! Maybe the fastest player in this years draft! A good comparison is Tomas Jurco, but Athanasiou has struggeled a lot this year!

A cool thing would be if we drafted another Shore in this draft! Quentin Shore!
