Nichuskin's breakout speed from his skating is world class. I remember people were ragging on Seth Jones and Ryan Murphy for not being able to stop from him going around them, but I think that it is easier said than done. He is almost unstoppable (without taking a penalty), when he reaches top flight.
I think the scouts, namely, Button, were extremely accurate with their assessment.
He looks absolutely fearless going to the net, and out of the many Russian wingers, he looks like he can finish extremely well.
Most of his goals are scored exactly that way. What do you guys think about this, and the ability for that style of scoring/play to translate at the NHL-level?
Video taken from the Main Boards:
To add: I think that he can seriously fall in this draft. It's worth considering because he is top-10 caliber, and much better than some of the Junior players being discussed.
