Observations:

 

June 2016- Sosunov is a giant of a human being and fits the prototypical power defender mold. Ranked 25th among European skaters by Central Scouting, but is a widely unknown prospect. Sousunov is a raw talent and needs to improve his decision making in the offensive zone and defensive zone coverage. Skates well for a man his size, and has a massive wing span that covers a lot of ice, but has to take more time to accelerate and improve his overall mobility. Has a heavy shot but lacks offensive upside, his forte is his size, and reach allowing him to breakup offensive plays and is obviously has effective board work.

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

 

A lot of raw potential but needs plenty of development.
