In his short KHL stint showed that he is ready to play pro hockey and looked fine in a crashing and burning bankrupt Spartak team. Because of Spartak's bankruptcy he might be willing to go to NA immediately, which might raise his draft stock.
Comparison: Varly-lite.
Prediction: Might go in 4-th round, since the talent is definitely there. Rangers have scouted him and they got two picks in 4-th, so...

i think we go goaltender in this draft and i also believe it will be a euro goalie.

4th round seems about right.
This, he reminds me a lot of Varlamov, not so much Hasek. He is also extremely poised under pressure. I could see him being an option for the post-Lundqvist era.
