Observations:

Oct 2017 - The Twenty-three year old russian forward split time between the KHL and the VHL in 2016-17, and has seen his production drop. He currently has three points in 11 games in the VHL. Not a lot of buzz around this player at all these days. - Joel Henderson

 

May 2015 – Delnov is a talented prospect currently commited to the KHL for one more season. He is a highly skilled physical player that is continuing his development to the pro game after seeing much success in the KHL junior league with Yugra Khanty-Mansiysk. With his junior team, Delnov scored 48 points in 42 games but has not yet translated that into the KHL as of yet. While still young, this burgeoning prospect could be a darkhorse for the Panthers if he decides to try the NHL. The hulking winger is not afraid of the physical game to go along a high end talent level. Lee Rayson

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

 

While Delnov has tremendous skating and puck-handling ability, he has not proven enough at the pro level, nor has he provided clear commitment to coming across the pond to join the NHL. Until we see more from him in the KHL, and know he is intent on moving to North America, consider him a distant prospect at this point.
