11/08/2004 Round 26: Spartak - CSKA & Salavat - Severstal Game Notes
09/21/2004 Arseniy Bondarev (New Jersey Devils #292/2003) loaned by Lokomotiv to a High League club
Talent Analysis:
Size & Physical Play: Arseniy is fairly tall at 6’1, but doesn’t have a lot of muscle on his frame. His style of play is pure flight and there really isn’t much of a trace of physical aggressiveness in his style. Skating: Skating is Areseniy’s main wild card that holds him up in the rankings. He is a fast, technical skater. Despite his seemingly fragile frame, he can take a hit or two while he is carrying the puck. He legs always seems to be moving. Shot: Arseny’s shot is average and could use more power. It is fairly precise. His release is pretty good, and he can get off a shot at pretty fast speed. Technical Skills: Arseniy is a good puck carrier. This is a great thing, but he never really shares the puck and doesn’t make great decisions when he has it. Because of this, he could take your breath away when he threads the puck through all three zones and scores, but he is a lot more likely to get snuffed out by the opposition, who know that he hardly ever passes. Defense: Arseny is a defensive liability and definitely needs to work on this aspect of his game. Overall: It appears that Arseny is falling behind his peers in development. His doesn’t see the ice very well and often makes questionable decisions with the puck. Arseniy Bondarev is a fast left wing who has solid puck handling skills and shot. He impresses with his raw speed and puck handling skills, but often times he seems to be everywhere, but with very little result
Back In Russia:
Arseny Bondarev was raised in Lokomotiv Yaroslavl’s hockey school. During the 2001-02 season, he debuted on Lokomotiv’s junior farm team, Lokomotiv 2, though he spent the majority of the season playing for Lokomotiv’s ’85 squad. He dominated his peers, averaging over a point a game, but towards the end of the year it was becoming a bit more apparent that he was falling behind his peers in development. Thus far during the 2002-03 season Arseny has been playing for Lokomotiv 2 and has been a member of the Russian National ’85 squad. It remains to be seen if he makes the U18 squad for the 2003 U18 World Junior Championships.
NHL Outlook:
Arseny Bondarev had the unfortunate honor of being the last pick of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, when the New Jersey Devils called his name. The terrible drafting position completes a disastorous year for the winger, who did not make the national team and did not perform well with Yaroslavl's junior squad. On the other hand it takes the pressure off the young forward. He flashes his great skills, but his individualistic style, and most importantly, slow hockey sense development significantly brings his rating down.
