Wowza, three in a row! Sabres Russian scout(s) are heavily trusted this draft.
Things to know: 18 years old, 6’1” & 154 pounds. Committed to UNH NCAA hockey next season and ranked #73 among EU Skaters, according to NHL Central Scouting. Rocked out with 30 points in 50 games in Russian’s MHL.
Steve loves this Russian selection, as well
88. Sabres KILLING it. They take Krasnaya Armiya's playmaking RW Stiven Sardarian. Rare Russian who's headed to UNH in Hockey East. Pure set-up man and high IQ. Very pleased with his play and has high upside. He'll bulk up in college pic.twitter.com/7d53pxTXph— Steve Kournianos (@TheDraftAnalyst) July 24, 2021
Edit, from Kris Baker (@Sabreprospects)
It sounds like Sardarian will play this upcoming season with the USHL's Youngstown Phantoms prior to enrolling at UNH.— Kris Baker (@SabresProspects) July 24, 2021
