Vladislav Namestnikov: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Namestnikov has had a strong preseason and was second in league scoring heading into Friday night with seven assists. But it's his overall approach and not just the scoring that has caught the eye of Tampa coaches. "Just watching him on the power play and battling for pucks in the corners, hes a different guy than he was last year," said assistant coach Steve Thomas. "Last year, he was getting knocked off the puck quite easily, and this year hes not."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Namestnikov is yet another supremely-talented young Russian forward the Bolts have boldly stashed away. He's still a distance from the NHL, but like fellow countryman, Nikita Kucherov, he has first-line upside. The two are different players -- Namestnikov would be considered the playmaker while Kucherov the sniper. So his keeper value is tied to your league format. We'd put Kucherov a notch higher simply because of his sniping. But the two might end up being equally valuable in three season's time. Watch him in the AHL this season to see how his game grows.

2012-13

Namestnikov is a whole lot closer to a job in Tampa than fellow Russian prospect Nikita Kucherov. Namestnikov isn't quite as talented as Kucherov, but he's awfully close. Combine that with his willingness to leave Russia and play in North America, specifically in the pro-style system of the London Knights, and willingness to play with an edge, and you have a potential top-line playmaker. His speed will impress in camp and he'll press for a job this fall. But we fully expect him to toil -- and dominate -- in the AHL in 2012-13.

2011-12

Namestnikov has those trademark one-on-one skills elite playmaking, great vision and exceptional lateral speed of an elite offensive Russian hockey forward. But his game also has some holes. His lateral speed isnt equaled straight ahead and hes not the fleetest of skaters. Hes skinny (170 lbs) for a six-footer, something that sets off a few alarm bells for a guy whos older than most of his draft class. And his shot is well below average. Still, he could be a Mikhail Grabovski-like waterbug without the snipes if he can grow his game. And his bloodlines -- son of a former NHLer (John) and nephew of Slava Kozlov -- speak to his potential.
