Also a good read on him:

Seems to be a bit of a project player. Most likely not a day 1 player which I am 100% OK with. No reason to keep rushing every player we draft in the 1st.
I don't get how they say his skating needs work. He looks plenty fine out there. On top of it, I'm impressed at how he's always around the puck in the offensive zone. And, if anyone saw that goal he scored from the Subway series that was a goal scorer's goal. That snap shot was an NHL caliber snap shot that goal scorer's score with.

As much as I hope the Flyers don't draft a forward, if they do, I'd have no problems with Zykov being that guy. I don't know why, but I watch him and he's got a very Mark Recchi-like game about him. He just goes out, gets the job done and does so in quiet manner, much like Recchi did throughout most of his career.
