Vitali Kravtsov's Player Profile

Goran Stubb - European Scouting Services: "Kravtsov matured and improved a lot over the season and was extremely strong in the KHL playoffs. He is a power forward who plays an aggressive, no-quit style of hockey."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - April 30: "He's a strong skater with balance and speed, plays with an edge and can create offense around the net. He's been compared to Evgeny Kuznetsov of the Washington Capitals."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - April 28: "No world juniors hurt and limited time in the KHL didnít help either. He made plays, created and produced when given the opportunity. It just happened that most of the opportunity came in the playoffs."

Steve Kournianos - SportingNews/The Draft Analys - April 28: "Kravtsov not only is an 18-year-old forward that actually played more than three minutes a game in the KHL, but he also scored in bunches in the playoffs. He's big (6'2, 170) and soft mitted, but his contract in Russia likely stops him from getting drafted in the top 10."

Cam Robinson - DobberProspects - April 26: "Smooth skater with skill to burn had managed to produce a few points in the KHL as a 17-year-old Ė no easy feat. He followed that up with an explosion of goals as a go-to option during the playoffs and has seen his stock rightly rise."
