Scouting report

When looking into OHL top prospects for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, you might as well begin looking at the top eligible scorer last season. Nikolay Goldobin, a late born 1995, was drafted into the CHL via the 2012 CHL Import draft - selected 36th overall by the Sarnia Sting.  Known as a highly intelligent, offensively gifted winger, the Russian born prospect lived up to expectations in his inaugural rookie season putting up 30 goals for 68 points for an event point-per-game pace. Not unlike most 17-year-old's playing their first season in North America, Goldobin struggled with consistency at times as he adapted to the rigours of playing a new style of hockey. There's no denying the pure offensive talent that Goldobin possesses but we'll look to see what type of adjustments he makes to his two-way play this year as it certainly leaves a lot to be desired.
