Scouting Evaluations:
Super League Round 18 - HC Khimik - HC Ak Bars Detailed Game Recap
Scouting Game Notes: Metallurg (Mg.) vs. Dynamo (Moscow)
Talent Analysis:
Igor Schadilov is strong, smart defenseman. He is a defensive defenseman and is usually last one out of the defensive zone and the firs tone back. However, he does have a very good offensive upside that mainly culminates in his dangerous and precise cannon of a shot. Igor is not a fast skater, with his long skating strides. He is sturdy on his skates and has impressive lateral movement and skates well backwards. He sees the ice very well and can make long, precise passes. Igor’s defensive positioning is very good and he effectively clears the crease. For a player his size, Igor has a surprisingly quick reaction. He judges the situation quickly and is good at blocking shots and quickly raising his towering frame off the ice. He is also a great stick handler and often intercepts passes or pokes the puck away from an opponent. Despite his large frame, Igor does not play a physical style of hockey. This is the main area where he needs to improve his game and become physical presence on the ice. He uses his size to tie down or push away opponents, but doesn’t usually lay down big hits near the boards or in the open ice. Part of it could be the bigger, more opened up European ice surface, but there were occasions when Igor’s opponent was primed for a big hit and he did not pull the trigger. Mentally, he is maturing very well and is not new to responsibility. Last season he spent on the first defensive pairing of the Severstal Cherpovets, one of the strongest teams in Russia’s Super League. He also played on the top penalty kill and power play units. He is always calm and collected on the ice. Unlike some players that are all over the ice, Igor seems to be more responsible and evaluates the situation before venturing into action.
Back In Russia:
Igor is a product of the Moscow Dynamo hockey system. Igor started to play hockey as a forward. After several years, likely due to his size, coaches moved him back to defense. 99-00: During the late 90s he moved steadily through Dynamo’s farm system and was finally called up to the main squad during the 1999-00 season. The call up was especially impressive considering that Dynamo was one of Russia’s strongest teams that season and one the Super League championship. He spent 26 regular season games and most of the playoffs on Dynamo’s fourth defensive pairing. 00-01: During the summer of ’00 Dynamo experienced a drastic talent drain, as most of the team’s leading player left for the NHL or other Super League teams. As a result, Igor’s playing time and responsibility increased. He spent most of the regular season on the team’s second or third defensive pairing, helping Dynamo Moscow barely avert a relegation to the Upper League. 01-02: After the disaster that was the 00-01 season, Dynamo Moscow received additional funding and changed the face of their team by going out and buying many talented free agents, including talented NHL caliber defensemen Andrei Skopintsev and Sergei Vyshedkevich. As a result Igor was cut from the team. This was more of a tragedy for Dynamo then for Igor, since he went on to sign with Severstal Cherpovets, which is one of Russia’s top five teams over the past five seasons. Igor took over a spot on the team’s top defensive pairing and was the team’s leading defenseman. 02-03: During the summer of ’02, Igor was invited to the ranks Russian National team for the Ceska Poistovna tournament, the first leg of the EuroTour tournament circuit. He remains on the top defensive pairing with Severstal for the upcoming season. 03-04: Igor Schadilov has signed a deal with Dynamo Moscow and will likely take over a spot on the top two defensive pairings of the Russian club.
NHL Outlook:
The Washington Capitals used one of their last picks of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft to select Igor 249th overall. What appeared to be a long shot pick, Igor quickly matured into a strong prospect after his performance with Dynamo during the team’s 99-00 Championship season. He has matured into one of Russia's premier blue liners with a powerful slap shot and may get a serious look from the Captials within the next couple of seasons.
