No offence, but sometimes I wonder if I need to run your posts through an English translator, man..

Anyways, interesting pick. Another good skater with speed, and apparently blossomed into a bit of a shooter and scorer. Warts to his game, as expected in the latter half of the draft. I like Brock Otten's OHL prospects reviews alot so it's encouraging to see his words on this player.

We're absolutely killing it in the draft this year
So refreshing!

Is it?
In my opinion, coming in fast, slowing himself down, then stickhandling the goalie into submission before faking b-hand and finishing forehand. A change of speed can do wonders because it throws a goalie's timing off which allows you to expose them

Good size, able to score in a variety of ways as well. Acceleration and top end speed seem to be what allowed him to fall to us in the draft.

I like this selection a lot.

4 goals in his 4 playoff games. That's 40 percent of his teams goals in the playoffs.

That trade did him wonders to elevate his game.

Each one shows off a different aspect of his game.

The Nigara one shows off his offensive potential, whereas the Russia U18 one really shows off the kind of grit he plays with, his ability to pressure defenders and his willingness to get to the dirty areas. Enjoy!!

Loved this pick. Didn't know much about him until after we drafted him and I looked into him more...Loved that he was a RH RWer that was a goal scorer. By my count..thats 3 very good drafts for Chia, stocked nearly all the cupboards all over the organization...would like to see them draft more C's tho.
