Observations

June 2019 – Nikita Okhotyuk was drafted in the second round, pick 61 by the New Jersey Devils. He is a raw pick who needs much work but did show glimpses of a nice, two-way hockey game. Okhotyuk displays the occasional ability to rush the puck up the ice to create chances. He is opportunistic. The player is not slow on the ice so the long-term project has some skills to work with.  Chris Wassel
