Observations

July 2019- The Coyotes have announced that they have signed Prosvetov to an entry-level contract. The team wasted no time after he put together a very strong 2018-19 year. Prosvetov finished third in voting for top goaltender in the OHL after posting 36 wins, fifth best SV% (.910), sixth in GAA (2.94) and tying for second in shutouts. He was just as impressive in the playoff’s for Saginaw, posting some of the best stats in the league before unfortunately getting suspended for five games after batting the puck into the spectator area during a stoppage of play. This was during Game 2 of the Western Conference final series against Guelph which Saginaw ultimately ended up losing. Among goalies that played at least two games, Prosvetov finished with the best SV% and third GAA. With Adin Hill and Merrick Madsen most likely to play in Tucson this coming season, Prosvetov probably heads back to Saginaw as an overager. A strong training camp with the Coyotes though he could push himself into a AHL spot or in the ECHL. Keith Duggan

March 2019- A big, athletic goalie, the Coyotes considered Prosvetov very “raw” after selecting him in the fourth-round of the 2018 NHL draft. It was his second go around at the draft, going unselected in 2017. He showed solid potential playing as an 17-year old in the NAHL but jumped more on scouts radars last season tending net in the USHL for Youngstown where he posted a 19-9-1 record with a .913 save percentage and 2.90 goals against average in 36 games. The Russian native then helped Youngstown reach the Clark Cup Finals, going 7-3 with a .921 SV% and 2.58 GAA in 11 playoff games. At the draft he stated his preference to play in North America, not Russia, for 2018-19 and saw himself selected by Saginaw in the CHL Import draft shorty afterward. In the OHL, Prosvetov has put together an excellent year, making people notice he could possibly have a future in the NHL. He had the fifth best SV% in the OHL with an .910, sixth best GAA at a 2.94 and posted the third most wins at 36. Blessed with physical gifts, he moves his large frame around the crease very quickly, playing a butterfly style. Prosvetov looks quite comfortable dropping down wherever the puck may be, he’s solid at covering the lower half of the net, and doesn’t look slow or gangly recovering from an initial save. He’s also know as a character on and off the ice, quickly becoming a fan favorite in Saginaw for doing cartwheels on the ice and diving into the bench on delayed penalties. While Prosvetov has shown great promise, he has a long road ahead of him, especially with several goalies ahead of him on the Coyotes depth chart right now. Arizona is very high on him though, keep an eye on him he could be a sleeper pick. Keith Duggan
