Oksentyuk

Oksentyuk was passed over in the 2019 NHL Draft mostly because he was playing in Belarus and teams weren’t exposed to him. This year he’s proving that was a mistake. The speedy winger has improved his skating though he could still work on his straight-line speed, and he knows when to turn the jets on…

Oksentyuk was passed over in the 2019 NHL Draft mostly because he was playing in Belarus and teams weren’t exposed to him. This year he’s proving that was a mistake. The speedy winger has improved his skating though he could still work on his straight-line speed, and he knows when to turn the jets on to beat defenders. He doesn’t quite generate power the way he should, but he has a solid base and protects the puck well for a player of his size. His vision is good, oftentimes hitting trailers with passes or recognizing an opening to attack in the offensive zone. He possesses both the puck skills and creativity to pull off just about any pass in the offensive zone. His shot isn’t anything special, but the puck is off his stick lightning quick and he locates it well. A feisty player who likes to get under his opponents’ skin, he enjoys mixing it up and doesn’t mind being a pest. Defensively, he is a work in progress. He is a good forechecker and he seems to be willing to put in an effort in the offensive zone and he is a relentless player in the neutral zone, attempting to stop rushes with a good stick. The issue comes once the puck is in the defensive zone; he doesn’t seem to be dialed in and floats around, half-heartedly defending the point. He is often willing to block shots from blueliners but his effort outside of that seems to be lacking.
