Since the NHL draft lottery, the name Matvei Michkov has become extraordinarily popular in Montreal, as the Canadiens will, barring a major surprise, have the opportunity to select him with their 5th overall pick in the draft.

Some experts believe he is the best player available behind Bedard, possibly also a future generational player. Many even see him as the best Russian talent since Alexander Ovechkin.

Since he plays in Russia, in the KHL, very few fans have had the chance to see him play a game or even watch some highlights.

To give a good idea of the quality of Michkov's game, the excellent David St-Louis from Eliteprospects.com has compiled a very interesting video of him, commenting on aspects of his game that make him an extremely talented player.


One thing is certain, after watching this, Michkov should probably catch your eye. It seems absolutely obvious that if the CH decided to choose him on June 28th, the organization could potentially get the best offensive talent Montreal has seen in decades.
