Amirov is a very well-rounded offensive player who is one of the most entertaining prospects in the 2020 draft class. He is speedy with a quality first stride and good edge work, and while his skating is not explosive due to his stride length or lower-body strength, he’s incredibly agile, balanced and deceptive on his feet. He displays strong transitional play as he weaves up the ice and dances around traffic. When he has the puck on his stick in the offensive zone, he’s always a threat to make something magical happen, whether it’s by setting up one of his teammates with a great pass or by doing it all himself. His cycle game is excellent, using a wide base, an upright head and slick puck skill to play keep-away while he scans for opportunities. Gets his shot off in a hurry and can release from tough angles. Displays above-average hockey sense in all three zones, allowing him to find holes in coverage on offense and pinpoint spots to apply pressure or pick off passes on defense. He has great defensive awareness and always has his eyes open for loose pucks and likes to create interceptions or deliver good poke checks in the neutral zone. Could stand to get stronger, as he’s not great in physical battles once he runs out of space and has to get his hands dirty. Work ethic and motor are very good, allowing him to stay involved in the play in all three zones.
