Observations

June 2019 – The 23 year old right-shot D elects to sign a two-year ELC deal with Calgary. With over 100 KHL under his belt and an All-Star game nod, he brings pro hockey experience and a little bit of undersized grit to the table. He plays a real simple game as far as fantasy comes into play. He makes short quick passes, he defends well, and he has a cannon of a slap shot. The Calgary Flames have only drafted one D in the last number of years (Valimaki) so it makes sense to try and find guys who can come in and compete. 

You shouldn’t expect too long of an adjustment period to the North American physical style of play since that is what Yelesin does so well. He won’t bring high numbers from the backend if he is shoring up a third pairing, but you could expect some hits and blocks along with chipping in. Could be a sneaky add for roto leagues if he fits well. – Joel Henderson
