“Michkov’s hockey IQ is outrageous, his scoring ability is at the highest level, his way of thinking on the ice is absolutely unusual” – Yashkin

Former striker S.K.A. Dmitry Yashkin in an interview with said that the striker of the St. Petersburg team Matvey Michkov has a high hockey IQ and unusual thinking on the ice.

Last season in the KHL, Michkov played 27 games with Sochi on loan, scoring 20 points (9+11). His contract with SKA is valid for another three years. Michkov was selected seventh overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the NHL Draft.

– Do you have an idea of ​​Matvey Michkov, with whom you crossed the path of SKA? He was selected by Philadelphia in the draft. The guy is considered a star of the new generation.

– I would say his hockey IQ is outrageous. Chuyka scores at the highest level. Thinking about ice is absolutely unusual.

Let’s see what will happen. The draft is only a first step. And in the NHL itself, if you go there, you have to go through a lot more steps. I know Michkov has a contract with SKA for another three years. He has everything in front of him. Congratulations on your draft and good luck in your career.

– Is it possible to say that Michkov looks like your friend Alexander Ovechkin when he was 18?

– I think it’s a thankless task to compare players when one is 20 years older than the other. Ovechkin is a completely different generation. And you shouldn’t compare him to the same Wayne Gretzky, who is 25 years older than him. How can you draw parallels here?

“But Connor Bedard is compared to Sidney Crosby.

You can compare as you see fit. Although we don’t know what will actually happen. I agree that Bedard and Crosby are very similar players. But about Sasha and Matvey – another story, – Yashkin told .
