Matvei Michkov is a beast and proves that he should be considered in the top-3 of the next draft

The 2023 draft is likely to be quite impressive. Many players have immense potential, so the teams that will be selecting in the first round should get their hands on some very high level talent.

One of them is the Russian player Matvei Michkov.

While many expected him to be the fiercest competitor to Connor Bedard, the controversial situation in his native country seems to have cooled scouts down a bit, but his talent remains immense.

If Adam Fantilli seems to have become the new runner-up to Bedard, a certain Leo Carlsson is a name that is emerging more and more as the possible third pick of this draft.


However, Michkov has not slipped because of a regression in his game, on the contrary. He just proved today that he is to be seriously considered. While he was loaned by one of the best clubs in the KHL to one of the worst, to get more playing time, he proved that he is a real beast on the ice.

At 18 years old, in a men's league, he scored a goal in his second game with his new team, on a powerful and very accurate power play shot.


He did it again in the shootout with a great shot.


Many believe that Mishkov is the best Russian player since Alex Ovechkin. It could therefore be very crucial to look for him in the next draft.
