Nikita Korostelev's Player Profile

Nikita Korostelev is a player that will rise through the draft rankings and gain a lot of attention in the 2015 NHL Draft. He is a deft skater blessed with the natural size that lets him go where he wants, when he wants, and lightning-quick hands that let him work some serious magic with the puck. He can outright dominate his opponents when he is at the top of his game, tunnel-visioning the puck on his stick to the back of the net. He plays a North American style game, but has the coveted Russian skillset that can make him look like a man amongst boys. He has incredible potential; an extremely talented forward.

Areas he may need improvement in:
  • Play without the puck
  • The mind game / Playing when his team is down
  • Consistency

  • Rating:
  • Skating - 5/5
  • Skill - 5/5
  • Hockey IQ - 4/5
  • Work Ethic - 4/5

  • NHL Player Comparables: Taylor Hall, Ales Hemsky, Marian Gaborik, James van Riemsdyk, Alexander Semin
