Observations

June 2019 – Pavel Dorofeyev was drafted by the Golden Knights with their third round selection at 79th overall. Several draft prognosticators had him pegged as a late first round pick, but the lack of game viewings at major international tournaments may have caused him to slip to the third round. He has a decent offensive upside, and even saw time in the KHL this season. While playing in the MHL – the top junior league in Russia – he dismantled the opposition by collecting 17 goals and 31 points in only 19 games. Mason Black

June 2019 – Dorofeyev was officially measured at 6-foot-0.75 and 176 pounds at the NHL Draft Combine.  Jokke Nevalainen

February 2019 – Dorofeyev has been destroying the Russian junior league MHL this season – and he had a very strong season there already a year ago. He’s also played about half of this season with Metallurg Magnitogorsk in the KHL but his ice time has been very limited there. He’s one of the older players for his draft class which is not a bad thing but should be taken into consideration. Dorofeyev is a very talented offensive player with upside to become a productive top-six winger. He has great vision and puck-skills but also has a very good shot. He’s also a hard worker who isn’t a liability defensively. He’s not big but has decent size as well. Dorofeyev might slide down a bit in the NHL Draft because of the Russian Factor but he should be drafted early in fantasy hockey drafts. He’ll likely spend another year or two in Russia before crossing the pond.  Jokke Nevalainen
