Kazionov is versatile and experienced having played a role as both a scoring and a checking liner at both center and wing in the Superleague. He is a good skater with a good sized frame and an above average skill set.
Kazionov has a slight build and needs to bulk up to compete in more physical North American hockey. He has offensive ability but seems more comfortable in a defensive role.
With such a high level of Superleague experience as a checking liner, Kazionov might make a quick transition into the same role as an NHLer. However, that hinges on Dmitri making the commitment to come to North America.
