Welcome to the Flyers C Mikhail Vorobyov


Recommended Posts

Here is what I found....




Vorobyov was ranked No. 24 among European skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings this season. He's 6'2" and 194 pounds and put up 8 goals and 12 assists in 39 games in the MHL (the KHL's feeder league) in 2014-15.


Vorobyov also played for Russia's team in the under-18 World Junior Championships this past spring, putting up four points (1 goal, 3 assists) in five games

From Bill Meltzer......


4th round (104th overall) – Mikhail Vorobyov, C, Tolpar Ufa (MHL), 6-2, 198 lbs.
Born January 5, 1997 in Ufa, Russia (age 18).
Rankings: 24th on Central Scouting European skater list, 70th McKeens.

Note: The Flyers originally held the 99th overall pick but traded down five spots with Los Angeles in exchange for also picking up an extra 6th round pick in 2016.

Scouting Report: A defensively aware forward who earned a spot on Russia's U18 World Championship roster and posted four points (one goal, three assists in five games) in addition to playing well away from the puck. A good playmaker in the Russian junior league. Big and physically strong but scouts believe his skating needs improvement. His KHL rights belong to Salvat Yulaev Ufa. As I noted in a previous blog, the "KHL Factor" has become a much lesser concern for NHL teams over the past year because of a downturn in the Russian economy -- which has affected the KHL and its affiliated feeder leagues -- as well as an impending transfer agreement between the NHL and Russian Hockey Federation.
