February 2021 – Guskov is off to only a decent start in the MHL with 10 points in 14 games. He hasn’t displayed much growth since being drafted in 2019 and his NHL prospects appear to be dwindling. Sam Happi

September 2019 – Matvey Guskov has been returned to London of the OHL for the 2019-20 season. He’ll receive an increased role with a perennially dangerous London team. Sam Happi

July 2019 – The Minnesota Wild’s 5th round selection in the 2019 NHL Draft is a solid two-way center for the London Knights. His point totals were somewhat muted by a limited role as a draft eligible player on a competitive team but the young Russian showed flashes of high-end skill and finishing touch. Guskov is a good skater who accelerates to his top speed quite efficiently and with good technical stride. He can be easily be knocked off the puck at times but some physical maturing should help with that. From a fantasy perspective, Guskov has upside as a middle-six scorer who can help produce on a third line. He is a skilled, 200-foot center who plays a the role of a prototypical, modern third line center. Some further development and an expanded role with London this upcoming season could lead to this puck looking much more valuable a year from now. Tony Ferrari
