Russian netminder is the top-ranked European goalie by NHL Central
Scouting...Had a terrific performance at the 2012 World Junior Championship,
posting a 2.01 GAA and .953 save percentage to help Team Russia claim
Silver...Has excellent size (6-foot-3. 204 pounds) and athleticism...Played for
Ufa Tolpar in Russia's MHL (Minor Hockey League) in 2011-12 and recorded a 2.23
GAA and .931 save percentage over 27 games...Will likely play in the KHL for a
few years before heading over to North America...His draft stock could be hurt
if NHL teams are worried about him staying in Russia for too long.
