History

2008-09: Ivan Telegin played for the champion Metallurg Novokuznetsk junior team in Russia. Chosen 42nd overall in the 2009 CHL Import Draft by the Saginaw Spirit.

2009-10: Joined the Spirit for his OHL rookie season and scored 26 goals with 18 assists in 51 games. Telegin was named OHL Rookie of the Month twice, in October and November, 2009.  Invited to play in the 2010 CHL Top Prospects Game but sat out due to injury. Had 1 goal with 1 assist in six playoff games for the Spirit. Telegin also played for Team Russia at the 2010 WJC and was scoreless in six games.

2010-11: In his second year of OHL play, Telegin showed a more consistent approach and a well-rounded game. Moved to center one of the top lines for the Saginaw Spirit, Telegin showed his quality as a playmaker with 41 assists in 59 games. The big Russian also chipped in 20 goals and was more focused on strong two-way play.

2011-12: Traded from Saginaw to Barrie in the off-season, Telegin had a breakout season offensively playing alongside fellow Jets' prospect Mark Scheifele. He played in 46 games for the Colts; missing time after hurting his hand playing for Russia in the 2012 U20 World Junior Championship. He scored 35 goals with 29 assists and was plus-19 with 26 penalty minutes. Telegin scored 12 power play goals. The Colts finished second in the Central Division and reached the playoff's second round. Telegin led the team in scoring in the playoffs with 5 goals and 9 assists and was plus-six with 6 penalty minutes in 13 playoff games. He scored 1 goal with 1 assist and was an even plus/minus in six games for silver-medal winning Russia at the WJC. He signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Jets in July, 2011.

2012-13: Telegin played 34 games for Winnipeg AHL affiliate St. John's in his first pro season — suffering a season-ending concussion in January. He scored 3 goals with 7 assists and was +1 with 8 penalty minutes at the time of the injury. The IceCaps missed the playoffs after finishing last in the Atlantic Division.

 

Talent Analysis

Telegin has good size and skates fairly well. He's not as dynamic as the stereotypical Russian forward, preferring instead to wreak havoc by going to the front of the net and battling in tight spaces. Overshadowed by some of the more dazzling players coming through the Russian hockey system, Telegin is a big, strong player who plays more of a traditional North American size, using his skating ability and size to create opportunities or move opponents off the puck. Telegin is a well-conditioned athlete who uses his size and strength to his advantage.


 

Future

Telegin has turned pro and is playing for the St. John's IceCaps of the AHL.

The Winnipeg Jets finished the season ninth overall in the Eastern Conference, just four points out of the playoffs. On the whole however, it was a disappointing season for the organization. Although they showed fight down to the final week of the shortened season, several flaws in the team makeup became evident as the season wore on, and there are areas of concern that must be addressed in the upcoming draft.
