    Shoots: Left
    Current Team: Cherepovets Severstal (KHL)

In 10 playoff games for Almaz, Buchnevich scored 4 goals and chipped in 3 assists for 7 points. Buchnevich played for Russia at the 2012 World U17 Hockey Challenge, picking up 1 assist in 5 games for the gold medal winners.

    2012-13: Buchnevich spent the majority of the season with Almaz Cherepovets. In 24 games for that team, he scored 8 goals and added 15 assists for 23 points to go along with 36 penalty minutes. In 3 playoff games for that club, Buchnevich scored 1 goal and tallied 4 assists for 5 points. Buchnevich also saw his first action in Russia's top league, the KHL, playing for Severstal Cherepovets. In 12 games for that club, he scored 1 goal and picked up 1 assist for 2 points. Buchnevich didn't register any points in 6 playoff games for Severstal. Buchnevich played for Russia at the 2013 U18 World Junior Championship, picking up 5 goals and 6 assists for 11 points in 7 games.
    A fast skating forward with a good set of hands, Buchnevich is a very interesting prospect with an impressive ceiling. Not so big at 6'0", 170 pounds, the Cherepovets, Russia native makes things happen with his speed and skills. Buchnevich is indeed a player who has the ability to entartain the public with his skating and stickhandling abilities. On the other hand, he has still a lot to do before considering himself ready to cross the Atlantic. First, he needs to add some meat to his frame, then he has to improve his defensive game and play a more cohesive game. Buchnevich is a good playmaker and has very good vision of the ice.
    http://lastwordonsports.com/2013/06/...er-profile-56/

    Buchnevich is a terrific skater. He has very fast top end speed, excellent acceleration and great first step quickness. This makes him extremely dangerous off the rush, and he is not afraid to go wide on a defenceman and then cut to the net. He also has great agility, and good balance on his skates. Buchnevich could stand to add some weight to his frame but even with that, his balance and strength on the puck is good at the Under 18 level. It will need to be much better though for the pro game.
    Buchnevich is able to play all three forward positions which is a major plus for any prospect. He’s a pure sniper, with a fantastic wrist shot and snap shot. They are both powerful, accurate, and feature quick releases. He also has a very good one timer. Buchnevich is often able to force defenders to give him space due to his skating and it as at this point he can unleash is shot on the rush. He has good stickhandling skills and protects the puck very well. He’s not afraid to go through traffic and take the puck right to the net in order to get chances. Buchnevich is a skilled playmaker as well, he is very creative and is willing to try things that most players wouldn’t have the skill level to dream about. He also is willing to work hard in the corners and digging for loose pucks.
    Buchnevich’s defensive game is best termed a work in progress. He can often looked lost in the defensive zone as his positioning and fundamentals need a lot of work. He seems willing enough, but will need some major help in coaching before he can be a pro player.
    Stylistically Buchnevich is similar to a Phil Kessel. However this is a stylistic comparison and not saying that he will become as good as Kessel is. Instead Buchnevich is a prospect with serious boom or bust potential. The upside to be a first line NHL goal scorer, (whatvever the position) is there, but the KHL factor and the defensive game may make Buchnevich fall in the ranks.
    http://thehockeywriters.com/pavel-bu...spect-profile/

    Even with his average height, Buchnevich packs a ton of natural offense into his frame. He is looked at as one of the most lethal offensive weapons this draft has to offer. He is a fast skater, can control the puck at very high speeds, and has some of the best hands of any prospect. A very smooth and fluid skater, Buchnevich has blistering quick acceleration and top speed. His agility is a key attribute to his game and can turn on a dime.
    “Put up impressive numbers in the MHL this season and has played a role in the KHL with Severstal…Has top end puck handling ability and great hockey sense… Needs to add quickness to his stride but technical upside is there… Will benefit from continued development and adding strength.”
    “Stood out in international competitions with his high skill level. Creative player who is fearless in all parts of the offensive zone. A smooth skater who is deceptively quick with his soft hands which allow him to get loose and/or set up linemates. Fearless in traffic and is great in one-on-one. A strong forechecker. The way he beats you is by coming out of a pack with the puck and using his lightning release to wrist it into the net before defensive players can react. As with all the Russian-based prospects, their final draft slottings are entirely tied to whether or not they are committed to crossing the pond and actually attempting to become NHLers. He was selected to the roster for the World Junior Under-18 Tournament in April.”

    Great shot, very nice hands, can grow into his frame. Solid pick.

    Definitely the pick I'm most excited about. Having read some about him, he can be a really great pick if he pans out. Some serious skill there.

    He's definitely a project, so I wouldn't be too worried about it. Needs time to grow into his frame, needs to polish his game. He's very raw. He has first round skill, though, could definitely see this guy in our top-5 prospect ranking in the next year or two.

    Only if he opts out of his KHL contract.

    @AGrossRecord:
    Gordie Clark says third-rounder Pavel Buchnevich reminds him, in his style of play, in the late Alexei Cherepanov.

    He can do that?

    --------------------------------------

    I like that we're aiming for the home-run in this draft. High risk, high reward type players are who we should be aiming for.

    All of these picks are good skaters. Which seems to be something the NYR brass likes.

    He's probably getting paid a lot more to be in the KHL than he would to play in the AHL. There's always some reluctance for prospects to come over from Europe just to play in the minors here. Happened to David Kveton with us. He wouldn't sign an NHL contract unless he was guaranteed to play in the NHL and not the minors.

    Safety regulations would be the only thing I can think of. And in the AHL he could adjust to the smaller ice size.

    I, personally, would keep him in the KHL.

    The KHL isn't a better developmental league than the AHL. Also, we had a prospect die there, probably unnecessarily.

    Cherapanov's death was unfortunate, but it doesn't mean all KHL prospects are going to die there. He was doping and wasn't in the physical condition to be playing. Doctors cleared him when he shouldn't have been playing. I don't think that will be the case. That's like saying he might die in a plane crash because of what happened to Yaroslavl Lokomotiv. I'm not a fan of the KHL by any means, I think it's run by a bunch of crooks and poorly organized. Why is that a bunch of NHL scrubs can dominate that league? There's nothing special about it. I think the KHL is fine for Buchnevich for now. Developmentally the KHL isn't the best, but he gets to refine his skills against men and get bigger. He can work on adjusting in North America.

    Where did I say all KHL prospects would die?

    I'm familiar with the Cherepanov details.

    Fact is most NHL teams would prefer their Euros to play in NA sooner rather than later.

    Add in the fact that the KHL isn't safe, the statement KHL > AHL just isn't true.

    Then what was the purpose of bringing up Cherapanov? We all know what happened to him.

    I'm not supporting the KHL. I'm saying it's okay. I agree that the AHL is superior to the KHL for various reasons, but I'm perfectly fine with an 18 year old getting a chance to play against tough competition.

    The KHL isn't exactly safe, but I'm not entirely worried. Has anyone in the KHL died of similar causes since the Cherapanov incident?
