Draft Rankings and Comments:
2006 NHL ENTRY DRAFT
Rank 1: #5
Rank 2: #5 Ranking Comments:Possesses great size, good hands and scoring touch, one of Russia's top centremen eligible for this year's draft.
Rank 3: #6 Ranking Comments:Artem Anisimov finished his draft year off with an average performance at the U18 WJC. The young center did not deliver a consistent performance, impressing in the game against the Czechs, but failing to make a significant impact in the games either against Canada or the US. He understands the game well and has an impressive vision of the ice. Additionally, he possesses a very impressive wrist shot which is one of his main weapons. Still, besides the strengths, Anisimov needs to bulk up and improve his physical presence, as the young prospect hardly ever competes next to the boards. His lack of mass has also hurt him at the face-off circle, as he just doesn't yet have the upper body strength. Still, while Anisimov is more raw than some of the other prospects, he has shown a wealth of potential at the international tournaments and even found himself making his Super League debut this season for Lokomotiv.
Talent Analysis:
Scout 1: a decent skater for a player of his size...displays adequate bursts of speed and okay agility...solid balance on his skates...nifty stickhandling skills...solid hand-eye coordination...can handle the puck in traffic well...decent vision and hockey sense...a crafty passer who can make long accurate feeds...should improve on his in-close finishing skills...fires a quick slap shot...blessed with decent defensive awareness...stays in position in his own end and is adequately fast when marking his man...should drive the net harder...average in the face-off circle...doesn't look fully involved in the games and would be a much bigger force if he would give his best on every shift...occasionally battles for the pucks and isn't afraid of the physical play, but doesn't play an overly gritty style...hampered by inconsistency...when off his game is a complete non-factor.
Scout 2: a typical playmaking center...weak skating in both speed and technique - really needs to improve in this category...sees the ice very well...effectively uses his linemates...likes to pass more than he likes to score himself...doesn’t shoot much and has an average shot when he does use it...defensively doesn’t play all that well yet at the Super League level...doesn’t play physically much
Back In Russia:
Artem Anisimov was born and raised in Yaroslavl, Russia. The young forward is a product of the Lokomotiv hockey school. He made his semi-professional debut on Lokomotiv’s junior farm club Lokomotiv 2 during the 2004-05 season. He has continued to skate for the squad during the 2005-06 season, though in a more significant role with increased ice time. Internationally, Anisimov has been a member of the 88 born Russian national team since the squad’s inception. Anisimov will be on Russia’s 88 born squad that will compete at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
NHL Outlook:
Anisimov is eligible for the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. The young forward possesses imposing size and is also an impressive package of speed and technical ability. He reminds a bit of another Lokomotiv product, Buffalo Sabres former first round selection Artem Kriukov, and like that forward is capable of playing physical hockey, but does not instinctively use the physical edge on the ice. Fortunately, unlike Kryukov, Anisimov does not have any health issues and has performed well during the two seasons leading to the draft. If the IIHF and Russia arrive at a transfer agreement, Anisimov will be a second or third round selection. If not, Anisimov will fall to the fourth or fifth round.
