Probably more along the lines of Barbashev. He does have some skill, but I think centering the 3rd line is his projection at this point.

I heard he has more than that, but the highest I have heard his upside would be is a 2C. Which at this point adding Centers in is a bit redundant unfortunately with how many Centers we added last offseason.

If he was the best player on our list, there's nothing wrong with adding a center IMO. He's probably about 4 yrs away from possibly having an impact in the NHL. Who knows what the team will look like at that point. And if there isn't room at center, it's much easier to move to the wing that it is to shift from W to C. Excited to see what he does this year in the Q - should have plenty of confidence to put up the big numbers.

I think he was projected to go #58 and slid to 62 so about where he was supposed to go. I think he could be another Barbie or Sunny and provide some depth.

The middle to late stages of the NHL Draft are for making bets on players. Scouting staffs have to take stock of a player’s body of work and attributes, then try to project if they’ll keep moving along a development path or stall out. It’s not an exact science, though some clubs have managed to get things right more often than others.

Charlottetown Islanders forward Nikita Alexandrov is, in many ways, a player that seems like a pretty decent bet in the middle part of the 2019 NHL Draft. Born in Germany to Russian parents, he’s just completed his second full season in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League after coming over in the 2017 CHL Import Draft.

It’s easy to see the things about Alexandrov’s game that makes him appealing to teams. He’s a reliable two-way player and plays a responsible, consistent 200-foot game. He’s become more comfortable in the offensive zone, increasing his offensive output from 13 goals and 31 points to 27 goals and 61 points.
