Talent Analysis

An underrated offensive defenseman, Georgi Berdyukov combines good skating with a big slap shot from the point and a very good size. The defenseman recently bulked up and it adds a lot to his game as he will set himself as a physical presence back in the zone too.

Future
He's got a very good ceiling, but he's yet to be really tested.
