Anton Slepyshev's Player Profile

Slepyshev was passed over in last year's draft, mostly due to signability concerns. Despite being ranked 17th in last year's Hockey Prospectus draft rankings, he falls to 45th this season, simply due to the depth of the draft class. He is an above-average skater, with agility and free movement, as his shiftiness makes him hard to check. He has a plus shot and he knows it, as his mentality is often shoot-first, even from distance. He can still make plays, and he does not have tunnel vision, but his playmaking skills are not his best element. His physical game has progressed, and he has added strength since last season. He can protect pucks moderately well. He will display physical effort, although it could be better at times. He also needs to work on his defensive game.

Second time draft eligible has split season between Metallurg and Salavat in the KHL… Was ranked by TSR as a Top 30 player last year before going undrafted due to concerns of staying in Russia… Big bodied winger has a high skill level and ability to score goals… Should be drafted this year.
