2011 NHL Draft Prospects: Vladislav Namestnikov Scouting Report
Vladislav Namestnikov, Center, London (OHL), 5-11, 170
Vladislav Namestnikov has an all-around excellent package of offensive weapons. He is a very smooth skater who is a terror for the opposition when he gets in open space. In addition, the Russian-born forward is equally strong as a playmaker and a finisher on offense.
The two main concerns with Vladislav Namestnikov are his strength and whether or not he will sign to play in the NHL. If a team is confident that they can get him under contract and in the weight room, he is a safe bet towards the end of round one.
NHL Player Comparison: Alex Burmistrov, Atlanta
The similarities between Burmistrov and Namestnikov are striking, to say the least. They are both prototypical Russian forwards who are dangerous with the puck on their stick and very aware of what's going on around them in the offensive zone.
