Observations

April 2020 – Kurashev may not be the most talented player on his team at the moment, but his tenacity and ability to cause a disruption to his opposition’s attack stand out. He has most recently played on a line with fellow forechecker Anton Wedin, creating a high-intensity, aggressive combination for the Rockford Icehogs. At the moment, he is looking like a promising bottom-six NHL prospect with additional upside as his offensive role in the AHL continues to develop. Kevin Wong

 

December 2018 – Kurashev has been named to the preliminary roster for Team Switzerland for the upcoming world junior hockey championships. Averaging well over a point-per-game in the QMJHL this season, Kurashev looks to improve on last years performance and should be counted on as a leader for the Swiss team. Tony Carr

 

November 2018 – The first thing you notice when watching Kurashev is his tremendous skating ability, not only with his speed but his handling of the puck at that top speed. When he battles for the puck you realize how big he is and that he does not get pushed off the puck easily. Like most teenagers, he has some gaps in his game but they are all teachable skills so the onus will be on him to put the work in. His future is very bright. Tony Carr
