Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Played in the 2016 Under-18's and was an assistant captain at the Ivan Hlinka for the Russian team last summer (2016). A rangy, mobile defenceman that had 21 points in just 41 games as a WHL rookie, he'll likely be a top-scoring blueliner on Red Deer's defence." (Recrutes.ca 2017 Draft Guide)

• "He is raw, but still managed to play a ton of minutes under (Brent) Sutter. He improved steadily until he got hurt." (Cass Bruni, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "The impressive part of Alexeyev's game was his dependability in his own end. ... If he is to take it the next level, he will need to increase the quality of passes out of his end without compromising his turnover rates. He also will need to start to take over games defensively as he does not play a high-end offensive game." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
