SKAT­ING

The Hockey News - - THE STRAIGHT EDGE -

SVECH­NIKOV: “Svech­nikov has the more fluid stride, but it’s like pick­ing the best green ap­ple at the county fair,” said a scout. “They’re both good skaters.” With his big frame, Svech­nikov is par­tic­u­larly dif­fi­cult to han­dle on the rush when he puts his shoul­der down and uses that speed.

ZAD­INA: “Pow­er­ful stride, great edges and ma­neu­ver­abil­ity,” said one scout. “Big hips, wide legs, hard to knock off the puck. Not elite-quick like Niko­laj Eh­lers when he was in Hal­i­fax, but he has a more pow­er­ful stride than Eh­lers. He can blow through checks thanks to his power.” EDGE: SVECH­NIKOV
