Kirill Kaprizov Player Bio


Kirill Kaprizov

ON-ICE VALUE
First-Line Forward

STRENGTHS
Dual Threat: Kaprizov is a versatile offensive weapon who can’t be pigeonhole into one specific player type. He’s a deadly finisher and a dazzling playmaker. Unlike many skill-oriented forwards, he rarely waits for the perfect play either. If he sees an opening of any kind, he’s pouncing on it via a howling wrister or an accurate dish into a scoring area.

Skating: Whatever he may lack in straight-line speed, he makes up for in elusiveness and power. He uses his low center of gravity (5’9”, 201 lbs) and superb footwork to dig his edges into the ice and explode away from defenders. Few NHL forwards are as capable or happy to wheel around the offensive zone for extended periods of time.

Creativity: He isn’t just talented. He finds different and unexpected ways to leverage that talent. Flashing between-the-legs, behind-the-back, and spinning moves to keep defenses guessing. There’s no telling what he might pull off in any one-on-one situation.

WEAKNESSES
Play-Driving: Though he’s shown clinical finishing and zone entry ability, his five-man unit doesn’t exactly dictate the action when it’s out there. He could stand to provide better outlets and link-up plays on the breakout in order to tilt the ice in his club’s favor.

Defense: In fairness, Kaprizov is a willing defender. He simply isn’t a polished one yet. At times, he’ll over-pursue. Other times, he’ll stay in a decent position but won’t engage the puck-carrier, allowing the opposition to apply pressure on his team. Better timing and a more active stick would boost his two-way stock.
