#77 Evgeni Svechnikov
Pos: LW
D.O.B.: 10/31/96
From: Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, RUS
Height: 6'2
Weight: 205
Shoots: Left
Drafted: 2015 draft 1st rnd, 19th overall by Detroit (NHL)
Acquired: Signed to 3-yr contract by Detroit (NHL) 10/2/15
Personal:
Plus: Elite level on-ice awareness and puck sense... Powerful, accurate shot his greatest weapon... Brings Physical element to game to go along with his size
Minus: Foot speed could use a boost... Defensive game still in progress...
Organizational Comments: Red Wings Director of Player Development - Jiri Fischer "He has high-end skill, high-end puck possession. He knows where his linemates are even though he's never played with them before. He can withstand the pressure of the opposition, keep the puck in and still try to make a play."
What GRC says: Summer 2016 Svechnikov is a gifted sniper with a nose for the net and a hard accurate shot that he can get off quickly. His on-ice awareness and thought process is elite level already and he will only get better. He also likes to make a big hit and is a power forward, fitting into a 6'2 inch frame giving him the size to back it up. He can be a game changer and should have ample opportunity to grow into the pro game this season.
