Rodion Amirov's Player Profile

Rodion Amirov - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 30th: "Amirov is simply one of the best two-way players eligible for the 2020 Draft. Despite a lack of strength and size, he reads the ice well in the defensive zone to be in the right areas, block lanes, and apply pressure."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Sept. 21st: "The strength of Amirov’s game is in his ability to protect the puck and change directions with control. This makes him particularly effective within the offensive zone because I wouldn’t say his straightaway speed is all that high end."

Steve Kourmianos - The Draft Analyst - Aug. 10th: "Amirov split his season between the KHL and the junior-age MHL, and it was during his time in the latter where he proved to be too good for teenage competition."

Chris Peters - ESPN - June 30th: "Despite a lack of production among pros, Amirov has some of the best skill in this draft. He has remarkably fluid puckhandling abilities and a deceptive, quick release on his shot."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - June 25th: "Hard-working, skilled player who understands how to play both ends effectively."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - June 22nd: "A skilled left wing with speed and a high hockey IQ who can play all situations, the 18-year-old models his game after Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews and Tampa Bay Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov."

Jeb Biggart - The Hockey Writers - May 11th: He’s shown plenty of promise, playing a 200-foot game despite his smaller frame. He’s poised with and without the puck, has excellent board play in all three zones, and is very elusive in tight spaces."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Apr. 8th: "Can impact a game effectively at even strength. Most recent viewings were impressive."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Apr. 1st: "An impressive two-way winger. Competes for every puck and tends to win thanks to his balance and strong core. Makes the subtle plays that add up. Still searching for that separation speed.

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 20th: "A skilled left wing with speed and high hockey IQ who can play all situations, he models his game after forwards Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Nikita Kucherov of the Tampa Bay Lightning."

Steve Koumianos - The Draft Analyst - Mar. 18th: "Amriov is an elite stickhandler and is incredibly reliable when entering the opposing zone. He cleans up a lot of mistakes for his teammates and quickly transitions into attack mode. Amirov owns an excellent shot-release combination and fires pucks off the pass as accurately as any forward within his peer group."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Mar. 6th: "A skilled left wing with speed and hockey IQ who can play in all situations; has 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists) and four power-play goals in 17 games in Russia's junior league."
