Observations

January 2020 – Zhuravlyov’s 2 points in 8 WJC contests didn’t wow anyone, but he had a quietly decent tournament. He was moved between pairings as players made mistakes or got hot, but he saw good minutes in most contests and made a notable big save on the goal line in Russia’s semifinal win. He is not the type of player that generates highlights or hype, so his fantasy value has likely been stagnant. Not worth drafting in the near future. Hayden Soboleski

December 2019 – Zhuravlyov is once again in the mix to represent Team Russia’s preliminary roster for the upcoming WJC. This would be the 19-year-old’s second time representing Russia at the U20 tournament, after registering just one point in seven contests in the 2019 event.

Zhuraylyov’s 8 points in 30 KHL games as a rookie is fairly impressive, along with his aTOI over 13 minutes in a league that is often hesitant to play youngsters consistently. He earned KHL Rookie-of-the-Month honors in September 2019. Interestingly, he currently has zero hits registered over the course of the year, and only 17 SOG, so he certainly isn’t projecting as a multi-category performer thus far. The 2018 5th-round-pick of the Avalanche does enough things well enough to be a reliable asset on the back end without worrying about who the opposition has on the ice, and seems to be the type of player who is doing his job best when he goes unnoticed. Unlikely to be as valuable on fantasy rosters as he is on real ones. Hayden Soboleski
