Made his North American debut in the World Junior A Challenge. Surprised with his balance, footwork, lateral agility, strong pivots, lightning release and heavy shot. Uses his body in all three zones and will step into the opposition. Leans to hold off fore-checkers while he is moving on the attack. Creative carrier and passer who anticipates offensive flow. Supports the attack in his five man unit that expects him to get low if the opportunity opens. Did I mention his fancy foot work and ability to change directions? He stops and starts and almost always make crisp outlet passes from his end.

ALEXANDER ROMANOV
TEAM: KRASNAYA ARMIYA LEAGUE: MHL
POSITION: D SHOOTS: LEFT
HEIGHT: 5-11 WEIGHT: 183
DOB: 2000-01-06 NATION: RUSSIA



The 5-11 blueliner made scouts stand up and take notice with his eye-opening offensive performance at the World Junior Challenge where he scored four goals in
just four games. In later U-18 events he also showed that he could take care of his own end with decent smarts and mobility.

Andrei79 wrote:For those interested, I rewatched Russia vs USA with the only intent to focus on Romanov.

As you may all know, Russian posters disliked his defensive play and positioning. Personnally, I followed the MHL and U18 NT this year and he was never a big stand out. Obviously, after having watched some WJAC, that changed this week.

So, on to the game.

First things first, I'm not a fan of most of Russia's head coaches. They make mind numbing decisions sometimes. In this game in particular, Russia was getting outshot largely because the defense was a tire fire in its zone. Poor body angling and board play, getting beat to pucks due to poor positioning and trying to carry when the easy choice would have been a pass to the open man (which the Russia forwards were actually good at being). Galenyuk was garbage, in particular. But Misyul, Otokhyuk, Malyshev and even Zhuravlyov weren't much better, though the latter made up for it with sheer skill, stick work and skating.

As for usage, Romanov didn't play much and his assignments were lower end. Malyshev's and Zhuravlyov's pairings were getting the Hughes and Wise lines. And tbh, I think this is a big reason why us Russian NT fans missed something there.

If I had to guess Romanov's advanced stats for this game, they would likely be the best for Ds, and maybe for both teams (though I'd put my money on Miller if I had to), but at the very least for Russia. QOC would be low howver.

That said, a few things stood out.

As far as technical skills go:
-The scouting reports don't lie. He's an exceptional skater. Really high end. Not only does he never get beat on a straight line, but his agility is excellent and he can go from full speed to stop to full speed with ease. This is key for a pro defenseman.
-His shot might be tied with his speed as his best asset. Not only his slap shot, but his wrist shot too. He gets both off quickly, with ease, and without having to stop and take contol of the puck. He has an excellent release and use of screens. He knows his shooting lanes.

On offense:
-He honestly didn't get much of a chance to shine. He had one PP, but miffed due to his teammate and it created a shot chance for the other team. He was replaced afterwards by Zhabreyev, which was frankly stupid. It's not a slight to Zhabreyev, but he got himself out of position and that ended up creating a short handed goal for the US. In one occasion, he was able to carry and damn... he can fly with the puck. He actually has good hands, but he doesn't use them enough. That may be due to the role he's asked to play and the lack of quality ice time.

On defense:
-This is where I have a lot to say. First off, the concerns on his positioning and defensive play did not show at all this game. Actually, that's a massive understatement. He was bar none the best in his own zone for his team. It took until the end of the 2nd period to see his pairing pinned down by the US and that was directly because of Galenyuk's garbage play. I wish we could see shot suppression and quality stats, because it was impressive to see.
-Why was he good ? For a number of reasons: he gave very little space to attackers and was excellent at angling himself to pin them along the boards. On that note, he's a physical beast. He easily denied entry to Emberson (a rather big D for the US) with an open ice check. He was battling along the boards, in front of the net and even clobbered one US forward who tried to hit his goalie during a whistle.
-Probably his most impressive trait though was how easily he recovered pucks and instantly made hard tape-to-tape passes to the right open man, everytime. At three different times, he battled for the puck, used his shoulder, his low center of gravity to fight off the forecheck, then his speed to create seperation and then made a quick pass to the open man. In one instance, he beat Tyler Weiss in a foot race then cleared the zone. Beautiful.
-Lastly, another translatable skill, I, again, loved how good he was at keeping pucks in the O zone.

All in all, I can't believe I missed it. If there's one thing, it's that he didn't get much responsibility or ice time there, so it's tough to know how he'd have done with 20+ minutes against the Wise and Hughes lines. Another thing is that he didn't show the offensive drive you see from Zhuravlyov, another high skilled D on his team. Maybe its a lack of creativity, but maybe it's also keeping a solid transition, mistake free game during an elimination game. And, there's the fact he lacked the ice time to really show what he could do.

So, I'll be rewatching some other games. If these findings are consistent I won't be making long reviews like this though lol.

Saw a chunk of that game, and my first assessment still stands. Low usage, mistake free hockey. So far seen more of him defensively than offensively. The skating is good, but nothing "wow". Saw him carry the puck, but it was nothing spectacular, he wasn't "flying" like that guy said. Hughes flies, not him. What stood out is his defensive play. Might be more of a defensive D, but then again he's being used like a bottom pairing D.

So far I'm not sure why they felt they had to grab him at 38, but their assessment is certainly way more informed than ours can be.
