It's not too often a 'defensive defenceman' is as highly touted as Silayev, but he's deserving of a top five ranking for this draft, and could go as high as second overall. He's a massive defender who takes advantage of his stature, and long reach, to keep opponents away from his crease. He's also a fantastic skater who has no problem defending against a speed rush, or moving in and out of small areas with his excellent agility.
Silayev won't provide much offensively, but his ability to kill plays defensively and move pucks from his zone will contribute greatly to team success.
The kind of defenceman who would compliment players like Cale Makar / Quinn Hughes
