Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

"Small and skilled but too reckless for his own good."
-Red Line Report

Strengths: 

Namestnikov is a hard working, gritty player who fearlessly takes the puck to the net and also loves to chirp and instigate his opponents. Creative with the puck and is a good playmaker with great ability to make tips and deflections and a dangerous backhand. He's also honest and responsible defensively.

Weaknesses: 

Namestnikov is small in stature and needs to gain upper body strength. Can be aggressive to the point of recklessness and has a tendency to put himself in a position to get cleaned out by big hits. He's a good skater, but doesn't have explosive burst, and although you can take the kid out of Russia, you can't take Russia out of the kid: he does have a tendency to freelance with the puck at times and not involve his linemates.

Projection: 

2nd/3rd Line Center
