    Connor Bedard 2018 U13s

    Bedard will finish the tournament with 24 goals and 32 points in 7 games.

    Draftday Selects vs. Prokhorkin Selects

    https://youtu.be/n0FAhS__yAY

    Bedard is #98 in red

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0FAhS__yAY&t=13m50s
    13:50-14:05 everything is at the net with him

    17:30-18:30 some powerplay time

    37:45-38:10 outwits his opponent to gain possession of a loose puck in the offensive zone

    42:10-42:20 off the rush

    58:00-58:10 pretty neat sequence here for Bedard

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0FAhS__yAY&t=63m15s

    1:03:15 Bedard killing a penalty, disrupts, joins rush, sets up goal

    1:08:20-1:09:10 woah

    1:12:50 he sees the opportunity and pounces, defensive stick

    1:17:50-1:18:15 focus was on Bedard this game, but late birthday Ivan Demidov (#28 White) is pretty good

    1:20:10-1:20:40 back to Bedard, a nice deceptive move here, when he gets the puck it really looks like he's going behind the net. And then just look at him go from there.

    25:30-26:40 opening shift features a couple head to head moments
    25:50 Bedard and Kiviharju race for the puck
    26:15 Kiviharju not urgent enough against Bedard, leads to scoring chance against

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=28m30s
    28:30 Kiviharju steps up to disrupt the transition, then plays the body behind the net

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=29m30s
    29:30 Bedard steps off the bench and into a loose puck in the high slot

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=30m55s
    30:55 Bedard goes one on one against Kiviharju

    34:30-35:30 Bedard shift featuring everything but a goal

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=36m15s
    36:15 Kiviharju breaks up a 3 on 1

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=37m30s
    37:30 Kiviharju powerplay, makes a high risk play​​​​​​

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=54m50s
    54:50-55:05 Bedard draws penalty with a nifty move

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=55m40s
    55:40-56:25 Bedard goes HAM to tie it up

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=73m40s
    ​​​​​​1:13:40-1:13:55 Kiviharju with some defensive stickwork

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=81m35s
    1:21:35 Kiviharju intercepts at offensive blue line. Kid loves to shoot the puck, and he knows where to put it to create scoring chances

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=86m35s
    1:26:35-1:27:45 this one is a really fun sequence. Bedard pushing for the tying goal
    1:27:05 he dangles Kiviharju one on one,
    1:27:10 Kiviharju with the poke on Bedard
    1:27:35 Kiviharju with the dagger. Did I mention he loves to shoot the puck?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=90m0s
    1:30:00-1:30:40 Kiviharju ramps up the pressure. Create chaos for a scrambling opponent

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fT7vjqkEKo&t=95m45s
    1:35:45 Kiviharju makes a good decision to come out and challenge the point

    Kiviharju has some real struggles in this game against older competition, but comes away with a goal and I believe 5 points, and the win. Draftday had averaged 9 goals per game coming into this one, but Finland is stacked and does a pretty good job containing Bedard, who ends up with just a couple points (he average 5 a game coming in).

      2019 WSI U14s

      Finland Selects vs. Czech Knights

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4

      Kiviharju (#11 white) is underaged again here, but looks much more dominant than the previous year's U13s. The most noticeable difference is his speed and quickness.

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4?t=620
      10:20-11:10 Kiviharju shift vs. Samuel Sisik, a world class 2023
      10:45 Kiviharju with a poke check
      11:00 some evasive maneuvre

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4?t=1394
      23:15-24:00 Kiviharju shift
      23:25-23:35 evasive maneuvre and then changes the angle on his stick to make a pass out of a tricky situation
      24:30 Kiviharju powerplay

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4?t=1771
      29:30-30:50 Kiviharju shift starts with some nifty offensive zone work
      30:05 poke check on Sisik
      30:35 another poke check to break up a 3 on 1
      30:45 another slick evasive maneuvre

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4?t=2224
      37:05 another one on one against Sisik. Good effort but Sisik gets the better of this exchange

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4?t=3122
      52:00-53:00 Kiviharju masterfully patrols the offensive blueline.

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4?t=3616
      1:00:15 nice defensive puckhandling

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4?t=3815
      1:03:35-1:03:45 Nice moves to transition puck from defensive to offensive zone

      https://youtu.be/hvsWHbkgHu4?t=4002
      1:06:40 - 1:06:55 powerplay
      1:07:40 - 1:09:00 powerplay continued

        These are amazing, thank you so much for sharing them and breaking them into sequences!!

          Glad you liked them. I'm gonna start doing some less far off future players too. Not 2020s, ProspectShifts already has that covered. But I figured for further off prospects, rather than full shift-by-shifts, it would be more appropriate to just compile highlight shifts and plays.

          Currently up next on the docket is 2024 Alexei Dontsov, 2022s Danila Yurov and Ludwig Persson, and 2021 Carson Lambos.

            Some highlights of #10 in Red, Ivan Miroshnichenko - from the spring U17 Five Nations

            https://youtu.be/gzBCLmgBKao?t=3751
            1:02:30 - 1:03:00

            https://youtu.be/gzBCLmgBKao?t=4605
            1:16:45 - 1:17:45

            https://youtu.be/gzBCLmgBKao?t=5876
            1:37:55 - 1:38:30

            https://youtu.be/gzBCLmgBKao?t=6849
            1:54:10-1:54:40

            https://youtu.be/gzBCLmgBKao?t=7801
            2:10:00-2:10:10

            Playing a year above his age group against world class competition. Looks like a highly-skilled, dynamic, smart, tenacious power forward.

            Looks like Russia could have a top five or even top three pick each year from 2022-'24. Miroshnichenko is '22, Matvei Michkov in '23, and Ivan Dontsov and Alexei Demidov for '24. Man, to watch this game and recall that Miroshnichenko is clearly not the consensus first overall pick, holy shit how good is that draft? He looks better than Lambert to me. Maybe better than Savoie.

              How would you rank the 2020, 2021, and 2022 draft classes in terms of total high-end talent?

                Oh, interesting. I was thinking about this a bit the other day. To me the top 15 or so for 2021 looks similar to 5 through 20 for 2020. In other words, 2021 doesn't seem to have anyone quite on the level of Lafreniere, Byfield, Stutzle, Raymond. I think any of the first three of those for sure could be contenders for first over in certain drafts (like 2014 or 2017), but if you exclude those top players, the next ten or fifteen wouldn't be too far off from 2021's top ten or fifteen. Lambos, Clarke, Hughes, Edvinsson might all be as good or better than Drysdale, and then Sillinger, Raty, Guenther, Johnson, Lucius are likely not far apart from Holtz, Perfetti, Rossi, Lundell, Amirov.

                It's still too early to say much about 2022, but it's not outside the realm of reason that two to four of those prospects are on Lafreniere's level or even better. Wright, Savoie, Lambert, Miroshnichenko all look to be at least on the same level as Byfield, Stutzle, if not Lafreniere. And it is possible that any of McGroarty, Devine, Yurov, Persson could be close to that level as well, or at least on the same level as 2020's second tier, with Drysdale, Perfetti and them.

                    My first time seeing #19 Matvei Michkov (2023). Also #10 Miroshnichenko (2022). Not sure which one I like better. Michkov looks smoother and maybe has better hands, but Miro looks like an NHL star. He's got shades of a Hossa, MacKinnon, Matthews, Tarasenko. Powerful, explosive, hunts down pucks, makes things happen all over the ice. Not quite sure yet what kind of player Michkov is. Very high skill. His edges are fucking unreal. Maybe something in the mould of a Crosby, Seguin, Duchene. He's silky in the corners. The commentators mentioned the right faceoff circle area is kinda his office, a la Tavares.

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=496

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=724

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=1204

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=1644
                    Miroshnichenko on the 3 on 5.

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=2722
                    Powerplay. Michkov on right boards, Miro on the left.

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=3494
                    Michkov with no Miro, who had just been PKing.

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=3600

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=3814
                    Michkov with a slick little deceptive skating technique to open a lane for himself

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=3939
                    Look at the way Michkov springs backward out of the corner. His skating is next level. It's in Stranges/Pettersson territory.

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=4122
                    Miroshnichenko is a rabid dog

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=5041

                    https://youtu.be/1WYsdFz-oOI?t=5528
                    Michkov making things happen.
