I asked some people about Slepyshev at the Draft and the consensus was he had no interest in playing in the NHL.

Whether that means he'll never play or even change his mind? I have no idea. But I'm not surprised that no teams wanted to waste a pick on a guy that had no plans to come over.

Good player though. Lots of skill. No interest in him though for the Pens. It's easy to get excited about "taking a shot on him" or being pumped about a "low risk/high reward" guy. But he's not those things really. He's a question mark and a potential wasted pick more than he is a viable NHL prospect at this point.
