Observations:

August 2013 - After being passed over at the 2013 NHL Draft, Sergey Tolchinsky has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes. Tolchinsky attended the Hurricanes development camp (also attended the Rangers' development camp) and impressed Carolina with his skilled, hard-working game and now will be featured in the Traverse City Prospects Tournament in September 2013.

June 2013 – Tolchinsky ventured to North America after being selected 12th overall in the 2012 CHL Import Draft and added some offensive depth to the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Watch Tolchinsky play and it’s clear that he is exceptionally skilled offensively but it’s also very easy to see how small he is. Tolchinsky is a dynamic skater with great agility and elusiveness in his stride. The biggest knock on Tolchinsky, besides his diminutive size, is his lack of overall strength. At the major junior level, Tolchinsky is easily contained by the bigger more physical defenders and can get man-handled at times. He will need to add considerable strength before he is deemed a legitimate NHL worthy prospect.Brendan Ross

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

 

There is no denying Tolchinsky’s creative offensive skill set but until he bulks up with more strength, he remains a huge boom-bust fantasy prospect.
