Fantasy Summary

Koromyslov has the raw tools to be a useful defenceman at the next level, likely lower down the lineup. He skates well and has a big frame, also possessing good puck skills which all combined makes him an effective transition player. As of right now, his offensive potential seems limited but if he can refine his game and add to his toolkit, that could possibly change.

September 2023 – Koromyslov was the most used player on his team in the first two games of the season. In a country that prioritizes winning over player development, the young defenseman is getting a lot of ice time, averaging 20:43. This is an encouraging sign for his future progress. Cedrick Blais-Turcotte

 

August 2023 – For the second season in a row, Koromyslov played in all three levels of Russian hockey. The difference between last season and the year before, his he played almost all year in the KHL with St. Petersburg. Despite playing 29 games with his team, the young defender only managed to score two points. Koromyslov had limited opportunities to put points on the board with an average ice time of 9:10. The fact that he is playing games in the KHL at only 19-years-old is an impressive achievement. Cedrick Blais-Turcotte 

 

July 2022 – Koromyslov was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the fourth round, 120th overall. He split time in the SKA St. Petersburg system playing in the KHL, VHL, and MHL. In the MHL he played in 42 games scoring four goals and adding 15 assists for 19 points. He ranked 12th in points per game amongst U-19 defenders (who played 40 or more games) and 21st in raw point totals.

At the junior level he played a big role, some nights logging well over 20 minutes. At the VHL level he played two games, recording a single assist and in the KHL, he dressed for six games and was held off the scoresheet. This shouldn’t be a knock however as only seven total U-19 defencemen played a single game at the KHL level. Next year, Koromyslov should look to cement himself in a full-time role in the VHL. On top of that, he will need to make strides on both the offensive and defensive side of the ice to clean-up his game. He could also add some size to his large 6-3 frame to make himself more physically dominant as he tries to progress up the professional ranks. Gordon Munro
