What They're Saying

Sean Kournianos, The Draft Analyst:

Quote:
Powerful goal scorer from the center ice position who makes the most of his opportunities. A native of Moscow, Kolytgin doesn’t possess blinding speed, but his hands are soft enough to corral any kind of pass while he’s in full flight, giving off the appearance that he’s traveling faster than he is. He is strong on his skates and his edgework is fantastic, and he can fire off a quick, accurate shot while extended or fading away. Koltygin is a responsible player who understands the ins and outs of all three zones and is very good on faceoffs.

HockeyNow.ca:

Quote:
Good instincts in the offensive zone and can find the open ice and get into a good shooting position where he can release a good, accurate shot. Developing an NHL calibre wrist shot that he puts all his weight into. Has shown improvement in his defensive play over the season but still needs to show consistency in working his way back to the neutral zone to back check. Excels on the power play and can move the puck just as much as he will shoot.

I always read these prospect reports on the late round picks and they usually accentuate the positive so much I end up asking myself "how the heck did this guy fall all the way to the seventh round? ?"

It helps to remember that those who get drafted are the cream of the crop. For each one drafted, there are many kids who weren't good enough to be. It'd be like if you took the smartest kid of a certain age from every school in the country and then evaluated and ranked them. Each would have a long list of positives and not many negatives, since they're still mostly evaluated relative to the kids that they beat out to get there.

Koltygin was considered the most talented Russian 1999 born two seasons ago, so he should have some moves.

All those clips seem to fit into the scouting reports on Koltygin: good hands, good shooter, not blazing speed but moves well in traffic. I do wonder how serious concerns are over his speed, and if that's why he landed so deep in the draft. The game puts such a huge emphasis on speed now that players who can't keep up won't have very long careers.

Skating isn't too great, but it looks totally fine to me. Imo, the concern might be that his overall hockey sense/IQ might be not enough for something more than the third line at best.

Zero defensive game is one of the complaints I've heard.

I thought I read earlier somewhere else that injuries got him a bit last year and played into his drop. I could be wrong, if I come across that info again I will share it here.

He missed quite some time back in 2015-2016, no idea what exactly was the injury though.

Pretty slick. Would've been even more impressive if he had of scored.
