Observations:

November 2016 - Boris Katchouk is coming off a great performance for Team OHL at the Canada-Russia Series.  Born in Waterloo, Katchouk is also of Russian decent but has chosen to play for Canada internationally. Katchouk had a solid game with several scoring chances. He ended up with one goal and six shots by the end of the game. He isn’t the most skilled, but Katchouk’s shot can be very dangerous. He has the ability to open up space for his teammates which makes him a great complimentary player. Katchouk is getting higher minutes in Sault Ste Marie and will be looked at to provide more consistent offense as the season progresses. Once eligible, I see Katchouk spending a couple years in the minors before making a big leap. Kathryn Jean

June 2016 – Drafted in the second round by the Lightning, Katchouk was a great pickup for Tampa Bay. A skilled winger with first-round talent, he works hard and has powerful legs, which allow him to get a great first step. Needs to be more involved in physical play and be a contributor in his own end. Has a very good shot that he uses frequently. Will spend one to two years in junior.

 

Fantasy Outlook: B+

 

Has the shot and offensive instincts down, but will need to build up to NHL size to keep himself from getting knocked off the puck.
