December 2019 – The 19-year-old Russian winger should find himself amongst those chosen for this year’s WJC. His 6’4 frame will add some much-needed sandpaper to the roster, while he can also chip in on the score-sheet from time-to-time. With such a heavy top-six, he will likely skate on the team’s third or fourth checking lines and should play the role to a tee. This will be Voronkov’s first crack at the tournament, giving CBJ fans their first good look at one of their recent 2019 draft-picks. He has the potential to be decent 30-40-point forward, but without a contract signed holds no real fantasy value.  Dave Hall

November 2019 – The 2019 fourth-round-pick has made the big club out of the gate, playing for Ak Bars Kazan of the KHL. This is great news for the 19-year-old’s development as he learns to play in a top league early in his career. Through 14 games, Voronkov has one goal and two assists, averaging 7:28 minutes of playing time. The Russian-born winger has a high chance of making this year’s World Junior team which will allow for proper minutes to showcase his talents. The Blue Jackets have yet to ink their recent draft-pick so until they do, he carries no value to fantasy owners. Dave Hall   

June 2019 – Voronkov played last season versus men in Russia’s second-tier league and he looked good there. The 19-year-old is not an explosive skater, but he can surprise defenders at times with his speed. He has the puck skills to create space and occasionally flash top-end skill. Getting to the net is not a problem and he is not afraid to engage in physical play. Long-term prospect with numerous years of further development. No fantasy value as a result. Frank Pellegrini
