Observations

April 2019 – The Islanders’ chances of seeing Golyshev in New York took a severe hit as he recently signed a four-year contract extension with Yekaterinburg Avtomobilist in the KHL. Golyshev has stated that he has no interest in coming over to the NHL in the next couple of years, so it seems any fantasy owners may be stuck with some dead weight if they want to hold out. He has put up some decent numbers with 88 points in 153 games since being drafted, but it seems that he may not be worth taking up space on your fantasy team right now if he has no plans of making the jump to North America. Nate Duffett

March 2018 – After a poor sophomore season, Golyshev has rebounded strongly. He leads his KHL club in goals (18) and points (31) in 40 games. An emotional, flashy player, Golyshev has a lot of stick skills and a shot that jumps right off of his blade. His rookie season may have come too easy for him, but he has learned from that and has looked revitalized in Yekaterinburg in 2017-18. His KHL contract run through the end of the 2019 season and as an early 1995 birthday, he’s older than most 2016 draft picks. It’s unclear how much interest there is, on either side of the coin, to bring Golyshev over to North America. Michael Farkas

January 2017 – Anatoli Golyshev was an interesting selection by the Islanders in the fourth round, but could be a home-run if he is to turn out in the way that some hockey writers or observers of his think he may. Has been compared to a pretty good Russian player in the NHL right now called Artemi Panarin. If he even turns out to be 1/2 of Panarin I am sure Islanders fans will be happy. Golyshev is a bit undersized, but his skills are extremely high. As with many Russian born players, puckhandling, skating, passing, scoring, and all offensive characteristics are high. Not scoring at the same clip that he was at last year (25 goals in 56 games last year) but as with many Russian players, there are highs and lows and streaks along the way. Kevin Pedersen

July 2016 – Anatoli Golyshev was taken by the Islanders in the fourth round in 2016, his fourth year of draft eligibility. Golyshev already has three KHL seasons under his belt, having put up 36 goals and 68 points in 132 games for Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg. In 2015-16, he broke out for 25 goals, good for fourth in the entire KHL. However, it should be noted that he did benefit from an 18.7% shooting percentage, a figure he is not likely to replicate. Due to visa issues, Golyshev was not able to participate in the Islanders’ development camp held the week after the draft. Islanders beat writer Arthur Staple has reported that the Islanders will allow Golyshev to return to Avtomobilist for at least one more season. Brent Craswell
