Fantasy Summary

High-energy playmaking winger who drives play by skating. Often magnetizes the puck and makes a deceptive pass or a quick finish. Top-six upside.

May 2022 – Rashevsky’s development has taken a massive leap forward as he enjoyed a successful KHL campaign with Dynamo Moskva, racking up 35 points in 48 games (19 goals, 16 assists) in the process. Playing only 14:35 per night, Rashevsky drove the second line, away from arguably the league’s best player and teammate, Vadim Shipachyov. Finishing third for total points on his squad and at just 22 years old, Rashevsky’s 0.73 points-per-game led all players under 25. His 19 goals placed him in the top-10 league-wide while playing an average of two minutes less than anyone else on the list. He has extremely deceptive vision while distributing to teammates and his crown jewel is the nonstop motor that powers him to constantly push the pace of play. Rashevsky rarely gives up on a play, which is a testament to his league-leading 16 even strength goals. While his skating mechanics could use some work before making the jump to North America, the Jets seem to have a legit 30 goal – 60 point top-six upside winger on their hands. Look for Rashevsky to build upon his totals as he continues to develop in Moscow for at least one more season before crossing the pond. Justin Kaye

November 2021 – Rashevsky was selected in the fifth round by the Jets, after being lauded as a potential gem by scouts since before he went undrafted in last year’s round of selections. After scoring six points in six VHL games as a 20-year-old last season, Rashevsky hoped to become a main roster player on Dynamo Moskva’s KHL squad this year, and did just that: he now has 14 goals and nine assists for 23 points in only 24 KHL games so far, leading all under-22 KHL forwards by a margin of five goals and eight points.

Playing on the same team as KHL legend Vadim Shipachyov (36 points in 23 games) has its benefits, but Rashevsky has also been creating his own magic against the best men’s hockey players in Russia. I’ve got a good feeling about the Russian winger, but he’ll need to be more involved off the puck and use his stick more intelligently in those circumstances in order to truly dominate at the NHL level. He definitely has the rest, however. Hadi Kalakeche
