Observations

 July 2019 – The Predators drafted a monster of a player in Afanasyev in Round 2 of the 2019 draft.  He possesses extremely soft hands for a player of his stature and has a wicked shot off the half wall.  From the hash marks in, Afanasyev creates havoc for defenders down low and makes for a matchup nightmare.  He has greatly improved his skating over the past year and will need to continue refining his strong stride.  He is not known for his physicality, but shows strong body awareness by shielding the puck with great effectiveness.  Afanasyev scored 62 points in the USHL in 2019, a 48 point improvement from 2018. In time when his raw abilities and muscular growth align, Afanasyev could be a pillar on the wing for the Predators. – Nicholas Kawka
