Igor Shestyorkin

Darren Walker

An average sized, agile goaltender who is very quick in his crease. Goes side to side and up and down very quickly and fluidly. Covers a lot of net, despite not being the biggest body. Willing to battle and do whatever it takes to keep the puck out of his net. He can look quite unorthodox ailing in the crease. He’s very con dent in his abilities and it shows in his play at times. Cuts down angles and keeps his body tight to the post. Could use his stick better to make plays and close off the cross-crease pass. Shestyorkin does not have the best technical skills, like many of his countrymen, but he makes up for a lack of refinement with solid quickness, athleticism and re exes. His stick is weak and he does not play the puck very efficiently. Can be a bit of a nightmare when he leaves his crease to play a puck or make a mid- to long-range pass to a defender. Needs to work at tracking the puck better and maintain- ing his focus. Absolutely dominated the MHL junior league this season with a 1.42 goals against average and a .947 save percentage. (May 2014)
