Name: Dmitry Zhukenov
Weight: 165 lbs
Grade: 7.0 D + Prospect Boost = 7.0 C
Zhukenov likes to go hard to the net and displays a good one time release. He is steady defensively, always seems to be in good position which is an asset in both ends of the rink. He should develop into a decent two-way player with some scoring upside if he can adjust to the North American game.
Zhukenov will come to North America for the 2015-16 season and join the Chicoutimi Saguenéens of the QMJHL. There he will be much easier to scout and the Canucks can hopefully discover what they actually have in this player. He may be a 40 goal scorer or he may find himself adjusting to the North American style for a better part of the season, only time will tell. A bit of a long-shot prospect, this season should give the Canucks a clearer picture on his future potential.
