Fantasy Summary

Despite his noticeable mix of size and skill, he’s still a bit of an unknown in the North American game. He’d be a long-shot, but high-ceiling pick for any deep fantasy league.

Observations

November 2017 – Kraskovsky is having a dismal campaign with Lokomotiv Yaroslav as he has just two goals and six points in 33 games. It doesn’t appear the young Russian center will outdo last season’s career numbers and it’s possible the 21-year-old never makes the trip to North America on a full-time basis. – Jamie Zadow

July 2017 – Kraskovsky had his best season yet in the KHL, showing a little bit more offensive flare, finishing with eight goals and 18 points in 58 games. The 20-year-old centre is expected to return to Russia for the 2017-18 campaign where he will continue to develop his offensive game. At this point, his future in North America seems bleak as this will be his fifth consecutive season appearing in the KHL. – Jamie Zadow

September 2016 – Despite a strong skillset to match up with his 6-4 196 lbs frame, Krasnovsky’s offensive game seemed to dry up a little in the KHL in 2015-16, where he only scored five points in 40 games. He showed a little more production against players his own age at the World Juniors to score four points in seven games. He could be a solid addition to the Jets in the long-term, but the Russian factor could mean we may never see him in North America. – David Dickenson

December 2015 – Kraskovsky is playing his first full season in the KHL for Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. He has not been producing much with only 3 points in 32 games and has been playing limited minutes. He is playing center and winning 46.5% of his draws as a rookie which is very noteworthy. Pavel will be suiting up for Russia the winter at the World Juniors and will be wearing an “A” while doing so. He is expected to center the 2nd line behind captain Vladislav Kamanev and will be relied on to produce secondary scoring. Dont be shocked if Kraskovsky turns some heads this holiday.

Kraskovsky is a large prototypical Russian and possesses very solid offensive instincts. His skillset really reminds one of Maxim Shalunov. If there is knock on Pavel it is his hockey sense; he can be prone at time to cough up the puck and make dangerous plays. The success he has at the pro level will be dependent on his ability to mature into his body and mold his game into one more suitible for North America. There is no denying his combination of size and skill should not be overlooked. Chris Hartley
