History

His 2003-04 stats were not reflective of his true potential. He had to earn his playing time in the RSL as a young player, which is a task in itself.

2006-07: Still with CSKA Moskva (RSL), the winger potted a career-high 18 goals and 32 points this season, while also appearing in a personal-best 54 games.

2007-08: Parshin tallied 12 goals and a career-high 33 points in 56 games with CSKA Moskva (RSL) this season. He’ll be back with the club for 2008-09.

2008-09: The Russian winger, still in the CSKA Moskva (KHL) system, tallied 12 goals and 28 points through 48 appearances. Expect to see he remain in Russia, with CSKA Moskva, until the conclusion of next season.

2009-10: Parshin was the leading scorer for CSKA Moscow in Russia's KHL in his sixth season with the club. An alternate captain for CSKA, he scored 21 goals with 22 assists in 56 games and was +7 with 28 PMs. In three playoff games he had 1 assist and was -1 with 6 PMs. Parshin participated in the KHL All-Star game.

2010-11: Parshin led CSKA Moscow with 16 goals and had 16 assists in 46 games for the KHL club. CSKA finished last in the Bobrov Division and Parshin had a -5 plus/minus with 32 PMs. He signed a three-year contract extension with CSKA Moscow in June 2011.

Talent Analysis

Parshin was the purest stickhandler that the 2004 draft had to offer. The only downside is his size at 5'9. He has a problem using his body effectively and gets pushed around quite often. He is a fast, skilled winger that has skated with some of Russia’s best talent in the Super League as well as in international competition. He has great moves and can dodge contact. Other players have a hard keeping up with him when he hits his full stride. He can score and distribute the puck evenly. He has an excellent wrist shot and can be a consistent point producer. He has great knowledge of the game and very good instincts.

Future

Parshin currently plays with CSKA Moscow.
