Thoughts on him?
Great start in KHL for him. If he keeps it up he'll make the WJC team.
Wouldn't call him a late bloomer. He's 'blooming' at an early time if anything. It's impressive for a '94 player to play in KHL at all. You can pretty much count them on one hand. He might be like Grigorenko, most people haven't heard of him until his U18 WC, or even until he came over to NA, while he was a major prospect in Russia for a couple of years.
