Mobile two-way defender with a strong first pass. Great in both ends of the rink and is not afraid to get in the dirty areas of play. Value added in leagues that include hits and PIMs


Observations

March 2022- The Coyotes wanted to give some of their young players a shot at NHL duty and Kolyachonok was top of the list. After spending four games in the NHL earlier this season, Arizona felt he was playing very well with Tucson, putting up two goals and 12 assists. As Ilya Lyubushkin was traded to Toronto it opened a roster spot and Kolyachonok was promoted. So far he has two assists and averaging 14:51 TOI. Kolyachonok is expected to play the remainder of the campaign with Arizona. Keith Duggan

July 2021- Kolyachonok has been traded to the Arizona Coyotes along with Anton Stralman and a 2024 second-round pick for a seventh-round choice in 2023. With COVID-19 delaying hockey in North America, Kolyachonok spent most of last year playing in the KHL for Dinamo Minsk. In 46 games he had a goal and six points. He did finish the campaign in the AHL with Syracuse though, putting up two assists in 10 games. Arizona has revamped their defense for 2021-22, so Kolyachonok has an outside chance of making the big squad but most likely spends the year in the AHL playing for Tucson. Keith Duggan

April 2020 – Fantasy owners have a future NHLer in Kolyachonok but his ceiling is still undetermined. Likely another three years before he suits up, regularly, in Florida but the wait will be worth it. Keith Fries

June 2019 – The Panthers made it a priority to restock their shelves on defense and selecting Kolyachonok at #52 was a great start. As a rookie playing on the Flint Firebirds, the last place western conference club in the OHL, Kolyachonok was leaned on to play heavy minutes and made the best of a tough situation. He also tallied 29 points, four goals and 25 assists, in 53 games. While captaining the Belarus team at the Under 18s, Kalyachonok continued to exhibit his ability to transition the puck up the ice while being a physical presence. Kolyachonok will return to Flint for his sophomore season in the fall and continue to develop his skills on a club that should additionally be better. Maxime Tellier
