From one of the smallest players in the draft class to one of the biggest.
He was 4th among regular defensemen on his team in ice time, with 16:30 per game on Yekaterinburg at just 19.
Despite his size he can actually move pretty well. He's not afraid to play the body at all and has a cannon for a slapshot.
As with any defender at this age he still needs refinement in his positioning and decision making, but he has a really high upside. Played internationally for the first time ever at WJC and was the Russian's second best defender after former first rounder Nikita Zadorov.

Tryamkin said he wants to be "the next big Russian in Vancouver." He's got two years left on his KHL contract. #NHLDraft
