Dmitrii Sergeev, D

Shoots: L

Height: 6-3

Weight: 201

Born: 1996-03-26

Hometown:  Chelyabinsk, RUS

Drafted: Undrafted

Observations:

September 2017 - Sergeev spent 2016-2017 split between the Missouri Mavericks and the Norfolk Admirals of the ECHL.  In 36 ECHL games in scored one goal and had four assists.  Sergeev has the size NHL want in their defensemen; but he has a long ladder to climb to make it to the NHL.  Doug Abrams

 

January 2016 – Sergeev was an undrafted rookie who was signed by the Blues and is currently playing in the OHL for the Kitchener Rangers. He has tallied two goals and 11 assists for Kitchener as a defenseman, and was named to Team Russia for the world junior tournament. The blueliner doesn’t have a flashy game, and he is more of a defensive rearguard at this point in his development, but he does have some offensive skill. The biggest offensive asset at this stage is his shot from the point. He has a long way to go before he can play in the NHL. Speed is a needed area of improvement, but he is a good skater with a fluid and agile stride. Ultimately, Sergeev possesses the size and physicality that NHL teams, especially the Blues, look for in their defensemen.  Fantasy value may be limited here, but he is worth watching to see how his game progresses. Matt Kowalski

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

Sergeev would make an interesting point man on the power play, as he has a strong shot, but the future of his career seems to rest on his defensive ability.
