Profile Contributed By: HF Staff

History

2007-08: Pechurski had a strong showing in 2007-08 for Magnitogorsk posting a 2.07 GAA in 26 games. Additionally, the young goaltender helped team Russia to the Silver medal in the U-18 WJC tournament where he posted a 3.06 GAA and an 88.54 save percentage. 

Talent Analysis

A highly thought of goaltender from Russian, Pechurski plays a hybrid style game that is reliant on his athleticism.  Pechurski, while raised many eyebrows in the U-18 WJC, needs to work on his fundamentals. His positioning, stickhandling, puck control, and rebound recovery are all things that need to be improved before the elastic legged netminder can take the next step. 

Future

With a lack of transfer agreement the young Russian’s future in North America remains uncertain. He will likely return to the KHL next season.
