2. Evgeny Svechnikov, LW, 6-2, 205 pounds, 2015 first round. 2015-16 STATS: Cape Breton (QMJHL), 50 games, 32 goals, 47 assists, 79 points. ANALYSIS: A big wing with an accurate shot and fantastic hands, Svechnikov is able to score in tight areas and doesn’t mind the physical play. He played well in a brief stay in the AHL playoffs for Grand Rapids. Will start the 2016-17 season with the Griffins, and isn’t far away from the NHL.
