|A reliable defenseman, who doesn't stand out in any particular cathegory, but also has no obvious holes...a capable skater, also backwards...good offensive instincts, plays a good two-way game without exaggerating in joining the rush...okay passing game, isn't overly creative in the offensive zone, but rarely makes glaring mistakes...has a hard low shot which should use (and perhaps train too) more often...average puckhandling, can bring up the puck if not pressured...can catch up with forwards thanks to his good skating...has to bulk up and to gain experience...|
|Back In Russia:|
|Pashnin is an interesting defenseman that broke out in the 08-09 season, where he played in the WJC and was the first overall pick in the first-in-history KHL draft. Despite these good premises he remains a long shot towards the NHL for two reasons. The first is his not big size, which can hurt him in the more demanding NA style, and the second is his overall level of play. Being not a specialist nor a special talent, he seems to lack that extra gear required to European players in order to have a successful NHL career. But a lot can change in the next 2-3 years.|
