Anton Silayev's Player Profile

Rachel Doerrie - ESPN - April 2nd: "He skates very well and shows quality agility in the way he defends in transition and moves around the offensive zone. Silayev seems to be scratching the surface of his potential with his talents and physical gifts."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - March 25th: "Hes got more steps to take in his decision-making on the puck (I find he's a little too trigger-happy - he actually shows good poise and comfort when he doesn't rush), his shot (which he gets off in volume and does a good job putting on target, but will definitely add power as he gets stronger and works on it), and his ability to really impose himself with his size (which he really learned to do this year, leading Torpedo in hits)."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - March 13th: "He isn't likely going to be the power play specialist he was at the start of the season, but he skates extremely well and handles the puck without issue. Reminds me of Nikita Zadorov."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - March 12th: "His offensive play won't blow you away, but it's good enough to move pucks in the NHL. He can provide enough with the puck to go with elite defensive play to be a potential No. 1 defenseman one day."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - March 9th: "The 6-foot-7 blueliner is averaging just under 20 minutes a night while blocking shots, landing hits and showing off great skating for his size."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - March 7th: "Hes a very fluid skater with a physical presence on the backend and hes extremely dangerous in transition when he hits his stride. Hes confident with his decision-making offensively, not being too aggressive and is still quick with his outlet passes and puck-moving abilities."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - March 1st: "The left-handed shot plays an active role while averaging 14:54 in ice time in 63 games as a 17-year-old in the Kontinental Hockey League, and at 6-7, 211 pounds, has excellent strength and a long reach that he uses to his advantage."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - February 27th: "Its very rare to see a prospect with the kind of skating and agility Silayev possesses in relation to his stature. Silayev has a chance to be a top pairing two-way/shutdown defender at the NHL level."
