Mark Rubinchik has good size, a good stick and he’s a good enough skater to get to where he needs to be. I flipped-flopped a lot with this player watching him play switching between being impressed and disappointed but I think there is a body of work there that makes him an intriguing prospect. The one thing that I like about him is that he plays a simple game and plays within his means and doesn’t try to do too much.

My comparable for him is Ian Cole as he seems to have approximately the same size and skill-set and his upside is bottom pairing defensive d-man but it’s no-where near certain he will reach that level but he has a chance.
