Yegor Korshkov has all of the attributes you would expect from a Russian prospect -- solid skating, excellent puck skills and excellent awareness on the ice. Turning 20 in July, Korshkov falls at the older end of the draft class. While he has good size in terms of height, he will need to fill out that frame from the lean 179 pounds he carries at present. Here's the tale of the tape:
Current Team: Lokomotiv Yarolsavl, KHL
Date of Birth: July 10, 1996
Place of Birth: Novosibirsk, Russia
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 179 lbs
Korshkov had an outstanding tournament at the World Junior Championships in December, notching eight points in seven games, and proudly announced that "several" NHL teams had approached him during the tournament to express interest. However, he also indicated that his primary focus was to increase his ice time for Yaroslavl, and that he planned to remain in Russia for the next couple of years, as his contract with Yaroslavl runs through 2018.
