speed and is creative with the puck.

defensive game and find consistency before becoming an NHL regular.
Projected Role: Could be a top line winger in the NHL.


Andrei Kostisyn is developing quite well for the Habs. He’s considered one
of the teams top prospects and is likely the closest to making the jump to
the NHL. He has already been called up for a brief period this season.
However, in the 4 games he played he was held without a single point.

concern with Kostitsyn is that he used to suffer from epileptic seizures.
However, things seem to be under control with the help of medication.

In 15
games with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs this season, Kostitsyn as scored 5
goals and added 9 assists for 14 points. He also has 17 PIM.
