ADT Canada-Russia Challenge - Team Russia Roster Breakdown (Forwards)
Talent Analysis:
A technical forward with great puckhandling skills... excellent hands...very good skater with above average speed and good technique....good, precise shot, especially the wrist shot, which has a quick release and great power...strong player at 6’1 and 190 pounds, but does not play physical hockey, relying on his speed...does not hesitate to take a hit and plays well in front of the net...needs to improve his passing, as he is mainly a finisher...needs to improve defensively...understands the game and where he needs to be in the offensive zone...needs to improve his defensive ability.
Back In Russia:
Born in Saratov, Russia...started playing hockey at a relatively late age of 10...first team Kristal Saratov...joined Yaroslavl’s hockey school at the age of 14...currently a member of Russia’s ’85/U18 squads and Lokomotiv’s second team.
NHL Outlook:
Alexander Naurov was eligible for the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, where he was selected in the fourth round, 134th overall, by the Dallas Stars. Labeled by his teammates, as one of the best forwards in Lokomotiv’s junior farm team, he went unnoticed by many in the early stages of the 2002-03 season. This was largely the case due to him not being from Yaroslavl, and Lokomotiv’s coaching staff generally tending to entrust their local players with top positions. Naurov finally broke through the barrier this year, when he replaced Roman Petrov on Lokomotiv 2’s top line with Alexei Ivanov and Konstantin Glazachev. Now a member of one of Russia’s most productive ’85 lines. Naurov was projected to go much higher in the draft, but went overlooked until the fourth round. Dallas Stars drafting the young forward may prove a challenge for him, as this particular NHL club is usually heavily stocked with stars, leaving little room for younger players. Naurov will spend the next season in Russia and likely make the main roster of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. The young forward’s NHL upside lies on the second or third lines. He is a hard worker with a great attitude, also having the potential of becoming a role player.
