Pavel Mintyukov's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - June 29th: "He's an outstanding skater with high-end offensive instincts. There's a bit of risk/reward to his game, similar to San Jose defenseman Erik Karlsson in his prime, but Mintyukov's skating allows him to make up for any mistakes."

Mike - Morreale - June 29th: "Mintyukov (6-1, 194) is a creative, puck-moving defenseman with a high hockey IQ and is a strong skater. He's capable of creating a seamless transition and pushing the pace into the opposing end."

Peter Harling - NHL Rumors - June 27th: "He has a big upside with his size, skating, and offensive abilities. Still a raw package, he needs some development to put it all together and shore up his defensive game."

Jeff Svoboda - NHL.com - June 27: "Offense stands out for the left-shot blueliner, as his high goal and assist totals show he has the ability to put the puck in the net and also distribute. Mintyukov is known as an aggressive player who isn't afraid to join the rush and make a play."

Hadi Kalakeche - Dobber Prospects - June 18th: "Despite his offensive aggressiveness, he is almost always the first player back when things go south and the puck ends up on the opponent’s stick. His defensive stick is solid, closing gaps with the same aggressiveness that sees him end up behind the opponent’s goalie offensively."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - June 6th: "Mintyukov is an adept three-zone player whose game tilts towards offensive through his eagerness to engage in transition and off the offensive zone blue line. When he’s looking to be active, he can involve himself in all areas of the game."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - May 31: "He plays with pace and is aggressive as a rusher. His skating allows him to evade pressure easily and transition pucks up ice with his feet. Mintyukov is also highly skilled and can make plays through legs and sticks."

Chris Peters - Daily Faceoff - June 10th: "With some of the best hands in the draft, Howard lacks size, but he does not lack entertainment value. His feet and hands are quick and deceptive all at the same time, which makes him tougher to defend."
