Rodion Amirov's Player Profile

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."

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."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Mar. 4th: "Everything is in place for him to become a middle-of-the-line-up producer. A player who thinks the game well with defensive awareness as part of the package."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Feb. 5th: "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."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Feb. 5th: "Presents a dual threat in his ability to make plays and finish. Will hound pucks with smarts and skill, and those same elements are effective in transition."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Jan. 29th: "The top Russian, Rodion Amirov, has held his own in his in the KHL this season despite muted production. His play against his peers shows just how skilled the winger is."

Brock Otten - McKeen's Hockey - Jan. 21st: "Amirov is the top ranked Russian skater for the draft. The strong skating winger projects as a top six forward who is probably not very far from making an impact in North America. A late 2001-born, Amirov has already spent most of this year in the KHL."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "Highly skilled winger whose lack of strength is notable against older competition, but he holds his own in his peer group."

Will Scouch - Scouching.ca - Nov. 19th: "Amirov on the other hand has not looked out of place in the KHL to my eye, and has performed very well at the VHL level, let alone the MHL level. He doesn't show the habits of carelessness and individual focus I often see with young Russian players, and I think there's a great talent waiting to come out over time."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Nov. 10th: "Talented and quick, Amirov can be deadly in all situations."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "Playing primarily in the KHL so far, his role has been muted but the skills are there to be a productive forward. If he gets time in the MHL, he should be able to show off his skill."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "Amirov isnít going to light the NHL on fire but heís a crafty winger who can generate offence in a number of ways. Though he lacks physicality and has looked overwhelmed in limited KHL usage, heís still a dominant offensive player in this age group."

Chris Peters -ESPN - Oct. 22nd: "He has great finish with his shot and sees the ice well, but I was most impressed by his ability to extend plays, battle along the walls and make things difficult for opposing defensemen."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "Amirovís toolkit is exciting. Heís a highly skilled offensive player. He skates quite well, can score goals and create for his linemates. Heís not an overly physical player, but I donít have issues with his compete level."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "Very good skills and has the sense to know where to be when to be in the right spots where he can take advantage. He's not a flash and dash player, but he's effective with his skills and body."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "Has a quick, deadly release to go along with soft hands. More speed and strength would vault him up."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Aug. 19th: "Extremely talented, older, streaky winger who has a chance to be really good if he can put it all together."
