Nikita Chibrikov's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - July 12th: "Scouts have been impressed by his playmaking, skating and hockey sense, and the 18-year-old led NHL Draft-eligible players at the U-18 Worlds with 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in seven games for Russia."

Josh Bell of FC Hockey - July 8th: "Hes a skilled playmaker that has fearlessness in his game. He needs to improve the consistency of his effort and support in his own end."

Derek Neumeier of FC Hockey - July 8th: "One of the drafts more purely skilled players, he is incredibly dangerous on the rush and can pull off some highlight-reel plays with the puck."

Eetu Siltanen - Dobber Prospects - July 7th: "Chibrikov is a really skilled playmaker with great skating ability. Hes a smart, deceptive passer and possesses a great vision."

Scott Wheeler - The Atheletic - June 22nd: "When hes engaged in the fight and keeping his feet moving, theres a lot to like about his ability to impact a shift (both by ramping up the pace with his skating or slowing the game down to play a little more calculating) in a variety of ways."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - May 24th: "Hes tough and abrasive but also owns a pro-level shot and executes precision plays in open ice."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - May 12th: "Smallish (5-foot-10, 172 pounds) and skilled, he continues to progress. Wore the C for Team Russia at the U18s and that did not go unnoticed."

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com - Apr. 23rd: "Chibrikov, a left-handed shot who plays right wing, is a playmaker with great speed and strong edges who can handle the puck and backcheck."

Dylan Griffing - Dobber Prospects - Mar. 8: "Hes been able to adapt well at every level hes played at, though there are many games where his impact is very limited, mostly due to his size being an issue when playing against men and his poor off-the-puck play. Where Chibrikov really stands out is his skating ability."

Tony Ferrari - Dobber Prospects - Feb. 22nd: "He is an excellent transition player who has the puck on a string at times. He can bring you out of your seat with some impressive skill. He is a very good playmaker who needs to penetrate the slot a bit more consistently to ensure that he can become a bit more of a dual-threat as he advances levels. "
