    Future Considerations is the authority when it comes to a profile on this young Russian goalie. Said to be a “Hasek-like” ‘tender, Shesterkin is technically weak, but plays an unorthodox, reactionary style that gives him a chance on nearly every shot.

    This season, he split time between the MHL (1.42 GAA - .947 SV%) and KHL (2.80 GAA - .903 SV%) this season.

    Russian goaltender who dominated the MHL junior league before being elevated to the KHL parent club. Agile and and good angie goalie. Whomever takes him will wait and see if the selection pays off.
    http://insider.espn.go.com/nhl/story...nhl-draft-2014

    The Moscow native really turned heads last spring with a dominant IIHF under-18 tournament performance for Russia, and had his second straight great season in Russia's primary junior league. Shesterkin is a fun goaltender to watch because of his high-end athletic abilities and all of the tough stops he can make. He has quick feet, allowing him to make dynamic lateral moves. His reactions are also a plus, and he has the ability to make some of the more difficult stops with his glove. His reads are solid, with good flashes here and there, but he can still work on some of the finer details. Shesterkin can stand to bulk up his 6-0, 183-pound frame in order to fill up more of the net, but his upside is significant if he hits.

    Shesterkin is 6’1″, 187 lbs. Red Line Report says he never gets beat by anything clean, only rebounds and deflections. They like his focus and puck handling, but suggest he could use a lot of work on his technique.
    Red Line Report had him rated as a second rounder and the most underrated player in the draft.

    No doubt we need some goalie talent in the system — whether Cambot recovers well or not, since Cambot may chose to move on before Hank needs to share more time. Like the observation that he's rarely beat with anything clean, only rebounds and deflections. "Most underrated pick in the draft," was among the comments in the OP links

    Found the Redline Report analysis of him...

    Next up for Red Line is Igor Shestyorkin, a super-competitive kid who never gives up on a play. The cat-like acrobat shows phenomenal reflexes and anticipation, and almost never gets beaten by anything clean - it has to be a rebound, deflection, or screen shot. He needs plenty of work on his technique, but his focus and concentration are outstanding. The biggest downside is clubs not being certain of his future intentions - he has indicated a willingness to come to North America once his Kontinental Hockey League contract is done, but his availability is not a given.
    Honestly, this kids scouting report sounds almost identical to Lundqvist's when he was drafted. Quick as hell, competitive, and focused, but needs to refine technique. Hopefully he develops.

    Let's not go down the name comparison road. Let's just hope he develops.

    Np. I'm wayyyyy too in to this year's WJC. Says a lot about our drafting to have Duclair and Buchnevich from last year representing their countries, and potentially having our two goalie selections from this year playing as well. Tambellini's looking like a solid selection too. Should be exciting.

    Now with the NHL imploding, more Russian prospects might be thinking of coming here, sooner rather than later, whether we're ready or not.
    And with 8 more years of Hank ahead, I wonder if there's room in our system -- if the timing's just all wrong -- he is young, but he seems to be playing at a high level already -- which looks basically ready, to slide into an NHL role somewhere in the next few years.

    If this kid makes it to the NHL for the Rangers, the defense is going to have to un-learn everything they know about how to play 5' out from the net. This kid is aggressive and on top of his crease, great glove as well. I liked what I saw.

    Same. And what I liked about him was his stability and positioning. The book on him immediately post-draft was that he was a high-talent player who did whatever was necessary to make the save, leading to impressive (but somewhat unnecessary) Hasek-like moments. The reports made it sound as though he were a raw talent with a whole bunch of skill who was still technically unrefined.

    That didn't appear to be the case today. He seldom seemed out of position, and actually got INTO position several times much quicker than I would've anticipated. He's reading plays and reacting accordingly really well for where he is in his development. We're barely half a year removed from his draft and he looks very, very solid.

    I'm too bitter right now to even have a clear point of view.

    Things like the second US goal can't happen though. That was a massive brain fart at a terrible time.

    Tons of mistakes and bad reads for the US team all tourney.
    Really can't complain about goaltending at all, he kept us in the Canada game, and really didn't cost us the tourney.

    But as impressive of prospects as Eichel and Mcdavid are, it's obvious the difference of 1-2 years makes in this tourney.

    Cheering for Team Canada now...and congrats on FINALLY IMO is a solid roster, (in regards to decisions).
    When you have the most talented group of players, you should be caring less of how to match up against other teams.
    That has cost you guys lately.

    I meant Rusdian tender. Demko Valve was pretty good.
