Having seen him play whole year. I honestly think if you want to make him the best center of your team, he's 1,5 to 2 years from playing. He needs another full year of junior hockey and maybe some experience in AHL before making the jump.

Congrats Buffalo and please take care of our great russian.

He certainly has the size to become a good two-way player, but I think his best defensive strength at this point is probably his ability to play keep-away with the puck.
The kid has great hands and will do miracles with the puck. My biggest surprise about him was the fact that we've seen a lot of russians with Remparts in last years. And he was the only one to give the effort going back into D zone.
