Observations

July 2018 – Dmitri Samorukov is a two-way defender with an improving offensive game. He has been praised by Guelph Storm coach/GM George Burnett for his strong skating, his ability to play in all situations (including the powerplay) and his overall determination. The young defender has just completed his second season in the OHL and recorded 11 goals and 34 points in 62 games played. His numbers from last season saw improvement compared to his rookie campaign with the Storm. He also recorded one assist in five games at the WJC, and two assists in five games for the Bakersfield Condors. Samorukov has a solid overall skill set and if he can continue to develop his offensive game then he could potentially become a fantasy player to watch in the future. Jameson Ewasiuk
