Kisakov is incredibly dangerous in the offensive zone when he has the puck on his stick and a little bit of space to work with. His head is always up and his ability to read the offensive zone is among the best in this draft class. He has a feathery soft touch on the puck and can make one-touch passes in the blink of an eye. He is truly sublime when he gets the puck on his stick, able to make fancy, high-end plays with it. He has the poise and vision that you want out of a playmaker, but he also shows a proficiency for speeding up the pace or making a quick surprise move to open something up for himself. He’s light on his feet and is slippery to contain thanks to his smooth footwork. He can effortlessly curl or change direction to ease away from pressure. His brain, hands and feet all work in conjunction to make him a tremendous playmaker, who can feed dangerous passes almost effortlessly. His shot is also pretty impressive, making him a dual threat and that much harder to defend. He’s not a slouch without the puck either, as he silently weaves through traffic looking for plays to rescue or pucks to steal. On the downside, there are times when his focus and decisions are hit and miss, mostly forced passes. He knows how to be patient and wait for holes to open up but doesn’t seem to always apply that ability. He’s also not a physical player at all, as he shies away from contact and doesn’t cut inside often enough. He needs to play with more focus and pace. The biggest issue with his game is that he’s such a perimeter player, and he almost has to be. He’s skinny and frail, and when he tries to get inside he usually gets bumped off the puck at best or gets absolutely crushed at worst. He can occasionally carry the puck toward the net through traffic, though that may not be as easy for him at higher levels. He’s an easy player to physically win the puck from, and he loses more 50/50 puck battles than he wins. His frame is slight, so it seems unlikely that much time in the weight room is going to make much difference for him.
