|Undrafted - Under 20|

May 2013 - Baie-Comeau Drakkar's first year scoring star, Valentin Zykov led all CHL rookie players in scoring with 40 goals and 35 assists for 75 points in 67 games. Zykov was named the CHL Top Rookie of the Year. Zykov projects as a dominating puck possession power forward and is among the many players discussed as a potential first round selection. Zykov plays a style of game that should contribute to multiple categories in your keeper leagues so be sure to draft him accordingly. Brendan Ross
April 2013 - 2013 NHL Draft eligible forward Valentin Zykov recently took home QMJHL Rookie of the Year honours winning the RDS Trophy. Zykov finished his freshman season in the QMJHL with 40 goals and 75 points in 67 games for Baie-Comeau Drakker. Brendan Ross
December 2012 – Zykov has been one of Baie-Comeau’s best players this season. The big, powerful winger has made the transition to North America look pretty easy. He is producing over a point-per-game and sits second among rookie scoring leaders. He’s tough to knock off the puck and has a great shot that he gets off quickly. He’s one of the top draft eligible skaters out of the QMJHL and it’s unknown how the “Russian” factor will impact his selection. His stock has been steadily rising since the start of the season.
He has the size and skill teams are looking for but still a long-term project.
