Vladislav Gavrikov
23-Year-Old DefensemanD
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 23-year-old made his NHL debut under tough circumstances, stepping on the ice for Columbus in Game 5 of its second-round playoff series against the Bruins, but Gavrikov held his own in the postseason spotlight. A KHL veteran, he has the tools to be a solid defender in his own end in North America, using his 6-foot-3 frame and strength on his skates to push the opposition around. While he doesn't have great offensive instincts, Gavrikov is a very good skater and moves the puck up to his forwards quickly, skills that fit well in the modern NHL. The Blue Jackets' blue line corps is deep, but Gavrikov might still earn a spot on the Columbus roster for good with a strong showing in camp. Read Past Outlooks

Awaiting his turn in NHL

April 20, 2019
With extensive experience playing in his native Russia, Gavrikov now finds himself on Columbus' active roster ahead of the conference semifinals.
ANALYSIS
The Blue Jackets took Gavrikov in the sixth round of the 2015 draft. Listed at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, the left-shooting defenseman crafted five goals to complement 15 assists and a plus-48 rating through 60 games with SKA St. Petersburg this season. We fully expect the Jackets to continue rolling with their normal crop of defensemen in Round 2 of the playoffs, but Gavrikov should still benefit greatly from being exposed to the North American brand of playoff hockey.
