Klim Kostin's Player ProfileISS Hockey - Mar. 10th: "
ISS Hockey - Mar. 11th: "Underrated offensive upside. Very good shot/gets it to the net rarely using a slap shot""
Peter Harling Dobber Prospects - Mar. 19th: "Kostin is a big strong powerful offensive winger with a high skill set and excellent skating ability. The Russian factor should play heavily in his draft status as the CHL first overall pick in 2016 refused to report to the Kootenay Ice which should raise some red flags. Kostin has also been plagued by inconsistency, at times showing flashes of dominant upside drawing comparisons to the likes of Evgeni Malkin, and also going through uninspiring stretches where he is difficult to find in the game and has little to no impact."
Jeff Marek of Sportsnet - Mar. 8th: "Shoulder surgery has ended what’s been a challenging draft season for the Russian forward."
ISS Hockey - Feb 10th: "Power forward underwent successful surgery last week & is expected to make full recovery."
Mike Morreale NHL.com - Jan. 20th: "A big (6-3, 196), strong left-shot forward with very good puck control and skating ability. He knows how to use his size and strength when skating toward the net and has good drive and determination. He's expected to miss about three months because of a shoulder injury."
Future Considerations: "A big-bodied power winger with strong work ethic…he can dominate for stretches with his cycle game and puck-protection skills…can carry defenders around the ice with his power and balance, or stickhandle around them with a deke or two as he goes to the net…high-energy guy, always keeps his feet moving…possesses a very quick release and has great shot selection…heads-up player who has a great work ethic and leads by example"
