History

2011-12: Ivan Fedotov played for the GSDYUSHOR sports school in St. Petersburg, Russia — skating for the 1996-born team. The club had ’96 squads in both the 1995 and 1996 levels. Playing in the 10-team 1995 league, GSDYUSHOR’s 96’s finished ninth, two points ahead of the GDUSHOR 95’s. In 19 games Fedotov had a .824 save percentage. GSDYUSHOR finished sixth in the nine-team 1996 league. Fedotov played 13 games, finishing with a .828 save percentage.

2012-13: Fedotov skated for the Crystall Elektrostal 1996-born team in the Moscow First Group region. He had a 4.50 goals against in 22 games. Fedotov was selected by Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk in the fifth round (156th overall) in the 2013 KHL Draft.

2013-14: Fedotov played for Neftekhimik’s junior team Reaktor Nizhnekamsk in the MHL, Russia’s U22 league. In 24 regular season games he was 7-11-1, posting a 3.30 goals against and .866 save percentage. Reaktor finished fourth in the Povolzhye Division, falling to Sibirskie Snaipery in a first-round playoff series. Fedotov did not see any action in the playoffs as 20-year-old Timur Mamedov started all three games.

2014-15: Fedotov made his KHL debut —stopping 8 of 10 shots in one period in his only appearance with Nizhnekamsk Neftekhimik — and handled the bulk of the goaltending duties for the club’s junior team, Reaktor. Fedotov was 21-10-7 with 6 shutouts and had a 1.95 goals against and .911 save percentage in 41 regular season games. Reaktor, after finishing fourth in the Povolzhye Division, swept Sibirskie and then defeated Omskie Yastreby in a second-round series before falling to Belye Medvedi in the East Conference semifinals. In 10 MHL playoff games Fedotov was 6-4 and had a 3.01 goals against and .894 save percentage. Not among the 10 international goaltenders in the Central Scouting final rankings, he was selected by Philadelphia in the seventh round (188th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.

2015-16: Fedotov spent his third season with  Reaktor Nizhnekamsk in the MHL. He was 18-5-4 with five shutouts and had a 2.22 goals against and .910 save percentage. Reaktor finished fifth in the East Division, falling to Chaika in five games in a first-round playoff series. Fedotov was 2-3-0 and had a 1.84 goals against and .916 save percentage in five playoff games.

Talent Analysis

Fedotov’s biggest asset is his size, and his 6-foot-6 frame is the tallest in Philadelphia’s organization. He did well in the MHL, but will have to fight for playing time in the KHL next season.

Future

Fedotov returned to Reaktor Nizhnekamsk of the MHL in 2015-16, continuing to hone his game at the junior level in Russia. The third of three goalies selected by Philadelphia in the 2015 NHL Draft, he remains a long-term project but his size and athleticism suggest a solid base from which to build. He is still a few years away from playing pro hockey in North America — if he ever reaches that point.

The Flyers have a crop of prospects playing in both the NCAA and European levels, including almost all their goaltending prospects. A couple of netminders showed improvement this year, while some played few games and others – namely Matej Tomek – didn’t play at all.

Sorokin leads small but growing group of NHL-drafted goaltenders competing in Russia

In recent years, Russia has become a better producer of quality goaltenders. Proof of that is the number of NHL-drafted netminders competing in the KHL and minor leagues, which is in a modest growth trend. Many young, Russian goalies are experiencing an upward career progression, and almost all the goaltenders drafted in the last few years have an excellent chance of becoming solid NHL players, with the exception of Sergei Kostenko, who was a seventh round pick of the Washington Capitals in 2012.

The Philadelphia Flyers organization is still heavily populated with defensemen, several of them high-end ones. But the Flyers have added some forwards with more talent and upside, which is what an organization known for gritty forwards needs. Philadelphia also has more goaltending depth for the first time in several years. Read more»
