Observations:

 

February 2013 - Anton Zlobin was honoured as the QMJHL's Second Star of the Week (ending February 17th) after posting a trio of goals and 12 points in four weekly games.  Brendan Ross

 

February 2013 - Zlobin has taken the next step after last year’s 76 points in 66 games. He currently has 75 points in just 50 games. - Eric Daoust

 

November 2012 - Zlobin obtained 2 points or more in 6 out of the last 9 games of the Foreurs. Tonight, he aims at an 11th straight game with at least one point. He has 25 points in 17 games this year. Eric Daoust

 

October 2012 - Anton Zlobin was named to the 2012 Subway Super Series Team Russia Roster slated to compete in a six-game series against the Canadian Hockey League all-star teams from the QMJHL, OHL and WHL in November. Brendan Ross


October 2012- Now with Val d’Or, Anton Zlobin has six goals and 10 points in 10 games to start the 2012-13 season. Eric Dauost


August, 2012 – Anton Zlobin is a highly-talented Russian player who was recently drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins after being passed over in the 2011 draft.  The reasons for being snubbed a year earlier are evident: the KHL factor, lack of size and strength, below-average skating and poor defensive zone play.  This past season, however, saw Zlobin post excellent numbers for Shawinigan of the QMJHL, lighting the lamp 40 times (fifth in the league) and adding 36 assists in 66 games.  The talent is there, but the holes in his game will likely hold him back when it is all said and done.  However, in deep leagues he is worth a look because if he can put it together he has enough offensive game to potentially make it as a top-six winger.

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

 

Good upside, but a long-shot who falls into the boom/bust category.
