Vasili Podkolzin's Player Profile

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - Nov. 7th: "Based on his play at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup, he should be a dominant MHL player. Maybeís heís bored, but seeing him play against stiffer competition would be helpful."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 6th: "Podkolzin plays a raw, binary game that relies on him to make plays at high speed. Iím not sure heís got the on-ice awareness to be a major factor when those plays arenít working. Thereís no question he can take over a game in a moment, though."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Nov. 5th: "A shifty, creative and dangerous winger who loves to use quick cuts. He can split the defense and finish it himself or draw coverage and deftly distribute to a cutting teammate. A potential high-end point producer at the NHL-level."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - Nov. 5th: "A multi-tool force who plays nasty but also can beat you with ridiculous puck skills, Podkolzinís desire to develop in Russia shouldnít trump his game-breaking upside."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - Oct. 2nd: "If first impressions mean anything, then weíre looking at a budding star. Has produced in all the major international events to date, and was particularly noticeable at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup where he put up 11 points, including a hat trick in the bronze medal game."

Craig Button TSN - Aug. 14th: "He's involved in every part of the game in all situations. Skilled, smart, driven and has the ability to take his game to a level above that required."
