Round 12 Lada vs. Avangard Scouting Analysis
Draft Rankings and Comments:
Rank 2: #17
Rank 3: #18
Rank 1: #11
Rank 2: #7 Ranking Comments:his stock has been rising rapidly after an excellent WJC. Still, the speedy winger needs to bulk up, though his level of technique is very good, as well as his hands and his skating. He is also having a strong KHL season, with eight goals scored already, in a not stacked Lada Togliatti. Finally he found some ice time at his third season with the main team.
Talent Analysis:
A talented winger...very good technique and smooth hands...excellent skating, doesn't lack mobility and balance...thanks to his excellent skating he's a fast player with very good acceleration...likes to play the puck and skate throughout the offensive zone...very good nose for the net, dangerous without the puck with a good positioning...not a physical player, he tries back in the zone but isn't too effective...tries to play out of trouble and stay off the traffic...the areas of the game he needs work on are physical play and overall defensive awareness...
Back In Russia:
Sergei Andronov was born in Penza, Russia, and moved to Togliatti during the 2005-06 season. He hasn't had such a brilliant career with the national team until the 08-09 season where he was picked by Sergei Nemchinov to play in the top lines at the WJC, where he played very well scoring eight points in seven games, with three goals. In the same year he played the second full season with Lada in the Russian top league, playing well once again and scoring eight goals and four assists, increasing his production from seven to twelve points, good numbers for a player of his age.
NHL Outlook:
After being overlooked for two years, the 2009 NHL Draft might be the one in which he'll be picked. His strong WJC and 2008-09 KHL season raised his stock and he's now's seventh player for the draft. His style should fit well the post-lockout NHL and he has the ceiling to become a good second line left or right wing. 2009-10 update: After the draft he didn't report to St. Louis training camp and now he plays a core role in Lada Togliatti's lineup. The team's financial situation is very bad, and Andronov might have to find a new team in the next offseason.
