And for some amateur scout opinions, here’s how Chris Peters and Steven Kournianos feel about him (they love both our Russians)
53. Sabres take LW Alexander Kisakov. Hooooooome Run. This kid is so underrated. Sabres winning this draft by a mile. pic.twitter.com/zB2AlzsJou— Steve Kournianos (@TheDraftAnalyst) July 24, 2021
Another really nice pick for the Buffalo Sabres. Love their draft haul so far. Alexander Kisakov is a high-end scoring talent who will only get better as he tacks on weight. Had him No. 34. Hand skills are really fun, especially that release.— Chris Peters (@chrismpeters) July 24, 2021
We’ll be back with #88, #95 and #97
