Podkolzin was reassigned to AHL Abbotsford on Wednesday.
The Russian forward has great speed, which helped him reach the NHL at age 20; his wheels can intimidate opponents. When he is playing with high-end linemates, his passing skills come to the fore. His one-on-one moves are good and will become even better with more experience. He plays with a maturity that belies his age. Is already strong and does not get pushed around, and will get stronger as he matures physically.
Long Range Potential:
Talented forward with upside.
