Fantasy Summary

An all-around player, Fazleev may end up being a better real-life asset than a fantasy one, but he owns enough tools to perhaps sneak into a second line role down the road.

Observations

June 2018 – After leading the Hitmen in scoring in his final WHL season, Fazleev has struggled to transition that production to the pro level. He has just 35 points in 128 games with Lehigh. However, his defensive game is really coming along and he could carve out an NHL niche after another two years of seasoning. Dobber

 

July 2016 – The talented young Russian forward is slated to begin 2016-17 with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL after a successful final junior season. The 2014 sixth round pick produced 19 goals and 71 points in 59 games for the Calgary Hitmen and showcased his versatility at both centre and wing as well as his strong penalty killing ability. While it’s unlikely he’ll be a major point producer at the NHL-level, he does own good wheels, strong distribution skills and a high hockey IQ. Fazleev projects as more of a middle six forward who can disrupt breakouts and cause turnovers for his club.  – Cam Robinson

 

Mar 2015- The Flyers 2014 sixth round pick finished an impressive season with the WHL’s Calgary Hitmen by scoring 18 goals, 33 assists and 51 points in 71 games while also posting a plus-23 rating. This was a solid jump for Fazleev as he more than tripled his tallies (18 vs 5) and doubled his point production (51 vs 25) in his second year of junior hockey. Though small with raw talent, the Flyers brass have to be happy with the Russian prospect’s upward trend. All eyes will be on Fazleev and teammate and fellow 2014 draft pick Travis Sanheim as the Hitmen meet Buffalo Sabres prospect Sam Reinhart and the Kootenay Ice in the first round of the postseason. Zach Hopkins 

 

Jan 2015 – Fazleev, a product of Russian junior hockey’s Bars Kazan, was selected in the sixth round of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers. The skilled playmaker is currently playing for the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League where he was selected in the first round of the 2013 CHL Import Draft. While he needs to work on his footwork, he has excelled in creating offensive chances for himself and teammates via strong work along the boards and by routinely knocking opponents off of the puck. Fazleev has already amassed 35 points through 45 games with a plus-7 rating this season, an increase from his impressive rookie campaign in which he recorded 0.65 points per game. He has visible offensive potential as is evident by an above-average shot and passing ability. But wait time will be a long one for fantasy owners. Zach Hopkins
