Draft Rankings and Comments:
Rank 1: #14
Rank 2: #14
Rank 3: #15 Ranking Comments:Continues to play for Dynamo 2 and not much has changed since the last ranking.
Rank 4: #20
Talent Analysis:
Scout 1: A good skater with an explosive stride...above-average acceleration and footspeed...solid lower-body strength...good offensive upside...creative puck-carrier capable of accurate tape-on-tape passes...crafty puckhandling skills...good vision and timing of hiding his shot from the point and needs to fire the pucks more often...isn't overly soft, but uses his stick in his own zone more than his body...decent positional play...doesn't get outmuscled too often thanks to a stocky frame.
Scout 2: An average skater with good acceleration and quick change of pace. Effective at joining the rush but needs to shoot more often and also needs to harden his shot. He is good on the power play. He needs to get more physically involved into the game.
Scout 3: Pakhomov is a physically strong, tough player...stocky but shot at only 5’9 and 185 pounds...a good passer...possesses a good shot...sees the ice well...good skater and has very strong, powerful legs...internationally usually skates on the same pairing with Zubarev and the two are very effective together. Overall a strong defenseman and all he is missing is height.
Back In Russia:
Pakhomov is originally from St. Petersburg Russia, but spent the past several years in Moscow skating for Dynamo’s hockey school. The young defenseman has become one of Dynamo’s top '87 born defensive prospects, skating on Dynamo '87 top defensive pairing. He has been a member of Russia’s '87 squad since it’s creation and at times skated on the team’s top defensive pairing. Pakhomov has proved to be quite effective when paired up with Andrei Zubarev. The two form an impressive tendem.
NHL Outlook:
Denis Pakhomov is eligible for the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. The young defenseman has almost everything except size and physical presence on the ice. He is reliable in his own zone, and is capable of moving the puck up the ice, as well as quarterback the power play. To call him small would not be correct, since his build reminds that of Dmitri Pestunov. Both players are relatively short, but are stocky and are hard to knock down.
