Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Played for Russia at the Under-17 level (in 2016-17). He shared the workload with Daniil Isayev for the Under-17 team. He looks bigger on the ice than the size he is listed at. He doesn't play deep in his net and challenges shooters at the top of his crease. He does a good job of tracking the puck with traffic in front of him. He can, at times, be too aggressive and get caught out of position when making pushes from post to post too strongly. Usually, he's pretty calm in his crease, and doesn't get rattled by much."
