Daniil Gushchin's Player Profile

Clare McManus - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 30th: "The undersized winger may have some concerns in the defensive zone, as he sometimes puck watches and doesnít move his feet, but on offense, Gushchin brings speed and nifty stickhandling abilities."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 21st: "He never stops moving, heís relentless on the forecheck, he plays bigger than he is and once he chases down loose pucks, heís got the skill and the agility to dart through traffic to make plays. Iíve never seen him play a bad game."

Chris Peters - ESPN - June 30th: "Sometimes he can try to do a little too much and needs to pick his spots better instead of trying to force things, but he certainly does not lack confidence. I'd like to see him get a little quicker with his feet, though."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - June 22nd: "The 18-year-old works best with the puck and has a high-end skill set and shot. Raised in Yekaterinburg, Russia, the same hometown as former Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk, Gushchin has improved speed and strength and is one of the hardest workers on and off the ice."

Tony Wolak - The Hockey Writers - May 22nd: "Daniil Gushchin was one of the top players in the USHL this season and has the offensive skill set to thrive in a middle-six role."

Josh Bell - The Hockey Writers - May 22nd: "Gushchin has great vision, great hands, and great speed."

Steve Koumianos - The Draft Analyst - Mar. 18th: "Intelligent on or off the puck, Gushchin contributes on special teams and in late/close situations. He routinely is summoned for big penalty kills and will treat the on-ice disadvantage as an opportunity to make life a living hell for the other side. He is a very fast skater with multi-directional quickness, but Gushchin stays disciplined by keeping his stick and body positioned properly without cheating himself."
