Draft Rankings and Comments:
2005 NHL ENTRY DRAFT
Rank 1: #3
Rank 2: #2
Rank 3: #2 Ranking Comments:Continues to adjust to North American hockey for the Quebec Ramparts. Hasn't fullfilled his potential, but we are not giving up on him!
Rank 4: #2
2006 NHL ENTRY DRAFT
Rank 1: #8
Rank 2: #8 Ranking Comments:Established himself as one of the rising stars in the Russian Super League, but failed to impress at the U20 WJC.
Rank 3: #10 Ranking Comments:There were significant concerns last summer after Churilov concluded a mediocre season in the QJMHL and headed back to Russia. The concerns largely revolved around Churilov's ability to break into into the lineup of as wealthy club as Lokomotiv. Fortunately, concerns regarding the young forward's ice time did not materialize, as he received plenty of it centering Lokomotiv's second line. Churilov was largely successful and productive during his Super League debut, but despite his success, the additional concerns regarding him being a typical "soft" European forward have persisted and the young center did little to countradict this perception. He does see the ice well and is a capable passer, but his hesitation to play in traffic and fight at the boards are his most apparent downsides. While the new NHL is faster, a player will still have to be able to handle physical contact and this is the reason why Churilov, despite his impressive potential is only ranked 10th among the Russian players.
2007 NHL ENTRY DRAFT
Rank 1: #14
Rank 2: #21
Rank 3: #23
Talent Analysis:
Scout 1: Was team Russia ’87’s top line center during the 2003-04 season...a pure passer who sees the ice very well...not a very good skater
Back In Russia:
Genadi Churilov is the product of the Metallurg hockey school in Magnitogorsk, Russia. The young center has steadily risen through the club’s ranks, finishing the 2003-04 season with both teams from his DOB and Metallurg’s junior farm club, Metallurg 2. He was highly successful with Metallurg 2, despite the shoulder injury that sidelined him for a large part of the season. The young forward has been a member of Russia’s ’87 squad since it’s creation, centering the national team’s top line with Denis Istomin, who is another Magnitogorsk product eligible for the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. During the summer of 2004 Churilov was drafted 21st overall by the Quebec Ramparts in the CHL Import Draft. The young forward moved from Russia to Canada the same summer and embarked on his first North American season.
NHL Outlook:
Gennady Churilov is eligible for the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. The young center may not be any longer considered by the CSB to be a European forward, since he has made a move to the CHL. However, RussianProspects continues to track this young forward and include him in our ratings. Churilov’s great hockey sense and a solid overall skill level make him an attractive package. Hopefully a healthy season will bring some of the physical to his game, which would raise his draft stock even further. At this point, however, considering his average finishing skills and lack of a physical presence, it would be difficult to rank him among the top prospects eligible for the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
RussianProspects Projection: mid second round selection.
