Vasili Podkolzin's Player Profile

Cam Robinson - Dobber ProspectsMay 15th: "An absolute pit bull. Podkolzin offers high-end offensive awareness, lightning quick hands and a confrontational style. Despite some muted point totals coming from his club team, hes made a habit of showing up in a big way on the international stage."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNetMay 8th: "Reasons for doubt include inability to produce in league play and a U18 tournament that saw him come on only at the end to finish with four points in seven games."

Chris Peters - ESPNMay 6th: "An aggressive two-way winger who plays with an edge, Podkolzin mixes power with skill, good hands and a strong shot."

Hannah Stuart - theScoreMay 1st: "His acceleration is above average, he's smart and tenacious with and without the puck, and he's got an excellent wrist shot. Don't let the bias against Russian players fool you - if Podkolzin's drafted by a team that's dedicated to his development, he projects to be a solid NHLer."

Sam Conentino - SportsNetApr. 9th: "High character and off-the-charts compete combined with work ethic and skill make for a complete package."
