Comment From Marc
Valentin Zykov has been ripping up the Q in recent weeks, what do you see his offensive potential in the NHL being?

Craig Button: Valentin has been good throughout the season for a very good Baie Comeau team. He's a scorer with a very good shot but what separates him from others IMO is his hunger and determination to score. Excellent hands around the net & he recognizes scoring opportunities and with a good play making center, he will score. He played on the Russian team that won the Under '17 Tournament in Windsor, Ontario in January 2012. His team mates included Valeri Nichushkin and Nikita Zadorov.

Comparison: Michael Ryder
