NHL COMPARABLE: Alex Burmistrov

UPSIDE: 2nd / 3rd line Two-way Forward

I think the comparable in this case is very, very appropriate as there is a body of work with this player that you can see that if he puts it all together, he could really be something special. I always felt the same way about Alex Burmistrov but for some reason, he always seems to leave you wanting a bit more. From what I’ve seen from Svechnikov this year, he would likely top out as a 2nd or 3rd line center and there’s still really good value in that in the 2nd half of the first round where he’s very likely to be selected.
