Yaroslav Askarov's Player Profile

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 4th: "Projects as a franchise-changing netminder and this may vault him well inside the top 10 before we get to Montreal for the draft in June."

Ryan Kennedy - The Hockey News - Nov. 10th: "What team wouldn’t want a sure-thing goalie like Askarov? He’s got all the tools and could be NHL-ready soon."

Jokke Nevalainen -Dobber Prospects - Nov. 4th: "Has all the tools to become a franchise goalie at the NHL level. A team desperate for a goalie could draft him really high but a top 10 projection is very realistic at this point."

Tony Ferrari -Wings Nation - Nov. 4th: "He moves well laterally with quickness and precision, rarely over-sliding in his crease. He is strong mentally, rarely seeming rattled in the net. His reflexes are elite, snagging pucks out of the air with regularity."

Scott Wheeler -The Athletic - Nov. 4th: "Most 17-year-old goalies with his explosiveness swim in their nets. Askarov’s different. He’s aggressive but he has this knack for pushing to his spots without overextending. "

Chris Peters -ESPN - Oct. 22nd: "Askarov has remarkable power, poise and competitiveness that give his team a chance in just about every game. It's hard to find a goaltender who is so solid in every facet of the game, making Askarov a potential franchise No. 1 and future star."

Corey Pronman -The Athletic - Oct. 15th: "He’s a 6-foot-3 goalie who has the elite athleticism, hockey sense and aggressiveness to steal a match, and he has done so numerous times as a junior. He’s not dominating the VHL right now, but to be playing against men at 17 is extremely rare for a goalie in any top pro league."

Sam Cosentino -Sportsnet - Oct. 2nd: "Has built a beautiful international resume and has shone in big games. Shows great athletic ability for a goalie with a big frame."

Bob McKenzie -TSN - Sept. 16th: "The 6-foot-3 Russian has been billed as the second coming of Carey Price and even though there’s great hesitation to take a goaltender in the top 10, or even the top five of the draft, the sky could be the limit for this guy ... He’s big, athletic, and unflappable, and all he does is win."

Craig Button -TSN - Sept. 16th: "The skill, quickness, sense, calm and technique to be a potential franchise goalie. He has a steely-eyed determination to stare down the best of shooters and not blink."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Sept. 2nd: "Hits all the markers – size, composure, puck-tracking, elasticity, and competitive fire. His body of work thus far deserves a top-10 slot."
