Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "Has good hockey sense. ... He was able to read and react -- allowing him to get to where he needed to be. With the puck on his stick, Sergey has excellent hands and can beat defenders with his puck skills. His skating needs some improvements, but his hands are able to get him out of trouble with the puck. He likes to take the puck to the net with skill and can score and set up his linemates. ... With increased ice time, there will be the expectations of increased productivity." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
