F Andrei Svechnikov - Ak Bars Kazan, RUS JRS (2018 Draft)

Still a long ways away but figured he warrants the early discussion. He is the younger brother of Yevgeni of Cape Breton Screaming eagles who is expected to be a first rounder in the 2015 draft. Andrei is believed by many to actually be more talented than his brother and his stats are some of the best to come out of the youth ranks in a while. He could very well be competing for first overall and based off the size of his brother he could very well end up 6'2-6'4 when done growing as he is already 6'0. I know it's early but remember his name, definitely one to keep an eye on.

How to prevent him from leaving to Canadian juniors? This is the most important question about his development.

Heard a lot of good things about him. Very excited to see how he pans out. Is supposed to be more talented than his brother by a good margin. Definitely one to keep an eye out for.

There's still a lot of time left, but I guess Svechnikov-jr. is the name every Russian youth hockey fan is familiar with.

Oh, that's an extremely easy thing to do: just when the time comes (somewhere in 2017), Ak Bars KHL team needs to reserve a Top6 spot for him.

I expected you Peter, you should have seen the OHL draft yesterday at least one Russian picked in each round they are finding ways to leave and now flood the GTHL. Unfortunately Yevgeni leaving for NA will increase greatly Andrei's chances of coming over because he can now receive info on the league from a trusted and close source who probably has nothing but good things to say.

Id pause the hype train until a major international event like the U17s, then we'll get the measuring stick out
