I talked to him at the Top Prospects Game and agree with the comments here about him being a bit of a character. Fun guy to talk to.
I wouldn't worry too much about KHL/Russia, kid wants to play in the NHL.
As mentioned, skating is the issue. Heard some guys say that his form is poor. His game doesn't rely on speed though. A scout told me that he felt from the hashmarks to the net, no one was more dangerous than Zykov in the QMJHL last season. This is in a league with MacKinnon, Drouin and Mantha.
Really like this player and this pick.
