Talent Analysis:
Alexei Stonkus is an average sized defenseman. He is a mobile, skilled player with raw talent. At 175 pounds he does not play physical hockey. In order to be able to deliver hard hits, Alexei needs to improve his strength, especially upper body strength. Alexei's maturity level is impressive, - he plays with great effort and pose, rarely making mistakes. Alexei is aware at all times where he is on the ice and chooses his positions very well. He is a solid stick handler and skater, though could use a bit more speed . He also possesses an impressive hockey sense and is offensive minded. His appeal is exactly in his offensive potential. Alexei will not be a feared physical presence, but he can develop into a mobile and smart defenseman who quarterbacks the power play and is not a liability in his own end of the ice. His style is similar to Anton Babchuk, and he has drawn comparisons' to being the smaller version of the highly touted Russian defensive prospect. He is a potential top four defenseman. Alexei has the tools to become a second power play unit quarterback.
Back In Russia:
Alexei has been a member of the Russian National '84 Team since 2000 and has mainly played on Russia's second defensive pairing. He was the only defenseman to score a goal at the Five Nations Tournament in Tyumen and has been developing into a solid power play quarterback. He will likely compete at the 2002 U18 WJC. In Russia, Alexei's rights are owned by Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, a team famous for catching talent early from remote Russian areas and developing them into solid prospects. During the beginning of the 2001-02 season, Lokomotiv loaned Alexei to Elemash Elektrostal - a team that boasts many Team Russia '84 players. There Alexei got a chance to play in the Upper League and with his
NHL Outlook:
The New York Islanders drafted Alexei in the 6th round, 189th overall. He is a capable offensive minded defenseman, but will need at least another two seasons before he is ready for a serious look by the Islanders. For the 2002-03 season, Alexei Stonkus spent several games in the Super League competing for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, but mainly skated for the club's junior farm team and practiced with the senior club. Stonkus will be given an opportunity to make a bigger impact on the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl roster in the 2003-04 season.
