Mikhail Gulyayev's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - Dec. 19th: "A skilled offensive blueliner who is excellent on the breakout, Gulyayev must work on his defensive decision-making to truly ascend the draft board. His passing from the offensive blueline is one of his best assets."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 14th: "Transitional defenceman who can break pucks out on his own. His hands resemble a skilled forward."

Gray Matter - Smaht Scouting - Nov. 25th: "A dynamic and elusive offensive defenceman with good puck skills all around. He lacks some size and physicality, he gets knocked down easily, and can struggle with physical battles sometimes; but in spite of this, he defends decently well."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Nov. 15th: "Gulyayev is a highly intelligent and creative puck-mover who skates well and can make tough plays at a quick pace. He has all the makings of a power-play quarterback in the NHL."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 1st: "Heís a commanding offensive defenceman who is at his best when heís looking to take charge with his feet. And while we donít often see smaller non-Quinn Hughes defenceman taken as high as I have him ranked here, he doesnít play small and I like his game at both ends of the ice because of his mobility and the way he reads the play."

Jordan Harris - Dobber Prospects - Oct. 20th: "He is a smooth skating offensive creator who is a shrewd passer and excels at reading the play, displaying these skills on the rush and off the cycle, as well as from up top on the power play. Gulyayev is also a willing and capable defender who uses his mobility to disrupt oncoming rushes and an active stick to break up plays."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Oct. 19th: "Has already played at three different levels this season. Heís too good for the MHL, and not quite ready for the KHL."

Steven - Daily FaceOff - Oct. 3rd: "An offensive defender, Gulyayev played a significant role as an underager on Russiaís Hlinka Gretzky championship outfit in 2021 and followed it up with a big campaign in the MHL."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - August 8th: "Heís a commanding offensive defenceman who is at his best when heís looking to take charge with his feet. His size is going to be a talking point, but he doesnít play small and I like his game at both ends of the ice because of his mobility and the way he reads the play."

Andrew Forbes - The Hockey Writers - August 7th: "His hockey IQ allows him to look up ice at the developing play before the breakout happens and he can turn the play right into offence. He can either move the puck up ice quickly by passing it out of his zone or skate it out with speed."
