Fantasy Summary

Firstov is a powerful winger who’s offensive instincts are quite good. He competes at a high level and finds his teammates in good spots when he isn’t using his cannon of a shot. With some added bulk his physicality should play up more in leagues that counts peripherals such as hits

Observations

June 2019 – The Minnesota Wild drafted Firstov in the second round in this year’s NHL Entry Draft. He finished second in rookie scoring in the USHL this season, just one point behind overager Shane Pinto. Firstov displays a creative offensive game that relies on his good skating and high IQ. He consistently looks to set up his teammates in high danger areas. Firstov competes hard along the boards and around the net but could put on a few pounds to improve his effectiveness. He has a hard, heavy shot that hits the net more often than not. Some refinement in some of the finer details of the game could be useful and Firstov’s likely to get it next season as he’s committed to the University of Connecticut. Tony Ferrari
