Observations:

 

February 2014 – Another player who has launched himself into first round consideration is Saskatoon Blades import winger Nikita Scherbak, the WHL's leading rookie scorer by a large margin. Scherbak leads the Blades as well posting well over a point-per-game making a flawless transition into the North American junior hockey circuit. An intelligent player who’s shown to be very coachable, Scherbak’s game is featured around strong skating, creative vision and a willingness to engage physically in puck battles at both ends of the rink. He’s learning quickly and his big steps in development are exactly what teams covet.  Brendan Ross

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

Scherbak is a strong forward who has made significant development since arriving in North America. The Russian winger projects as a complementary top six winger.
