Czarnik info

Here’s the info on Robert Czarnik, the Kings’ first third-round pick.

FROM ISS:

Position: Right wing
Born: 1-25-90
Height: 6-0
Weight: 178
ISS Ranking: 32
ISS Nov. Ranking: 53

Skating: Good
Shot/Scoring: Very Good
Puckhandling: Very Good
Hockey Sense: Very Good

Scouting report: Czarnik is a good all around player. His speed is decent and he has above average hand eye coordination. Czarnik is strong on the backcheck and understands his responsibilities all over the ice. He is not afraid to engage the opponent physically, especially on the forecheck. Despite not having a large frame, he does a nice job of battling along the boards and using his body to protect the puck.

Last season, on the USA U-18 team, Czarnik had 15 goals and 15 assists in 49 games.

Hockey’s Future’s analysis is: “Czarnik is a talented offensive player who still has a lot of room to develop as a hockey player. He has good vision on the ice and a solid shot.”

Hockey’s Future report

Czarnik was listed as the 88th best North American skater by Central Scouting.

One more on Voinov

It’s a little uncertain to me how his first name is accurately spelled. It’s either Vjateslav or Vyacheslav. Call him Double-V for now. Here’s what Central Scouting had to say about him:

“Vjateslav is a talented and skilled defenseman who needs some time to develop. He is strong in the defensive zone and is able to make good decisions with the puck. He needs to get stronger and to improve on his first-step quickness.”

This past season was either the first or second of his three-year contract in Russia. Not totally sure which. That’s a question for Lombardi at the end of the day.

ISS report on Voinov

Here’s what International Scouting Services had to say about Voinov:

Position: Left defense
Born: 1-15-90
Height: 6-0
Weight: 190
ISS ranking: #37
ISS Nov. ranking: #17

Report Card
Skating: Good
Shot/Scoring: Very Good
Puckhandling: Very Good
Hockey Sense: Very Good

Scouting report: Voinov is a good rushing defenseman and is a physical presence who has strong offensive upside. Already a veteran in Russia’s top league, Voinov was up and down in the WJC but really held his own against his own age group at the Under 18′s. Protects the net well and loves to get involved offensively, whether on the rush or jumping in from the point zone.
