EDIT: Looking at the next post, maybe you meant points? I doubt he becomes a big point producer though. His main pro's are his smarts, and first pass. Also has good positioning. I don't think he will be a big point guy though but he is also only 21 so.
Yeah I was looking more for how KHL defenders point totals look. Some of those Euro Leagues are very low scoring. I know the KHL isn't necessarily one of them, but idk if defenders over there are more defensive or what.

This year the top 5 point producers among defenders in the KHL put up 42, 39, 35, 34 and 31 pts. going back a few yrs it seems the top 5 are in the mid 30's on average. so 18 isn't great but for a 21 yo obviously still improving it's actually pretty damn good. i should've paid better attention to the breakdown of his stats.

if he were to become a flyers, he continues to improve his offensive game and the team continues to play this offensive style i don't think it's a stretch to say he puts up 30+ points once he gets used to things. i'm totally talking out of my ass here though
This post is exactly what I was looking for. Certainly doesn't seem like it would be a bad idea to nab this guy.
