With the 2022 NHL Draft about six weeks away, we look at one prospect who has been mocked to the San Jose Sharks in several publications, defenseman Pavel Mintyukov. To do this, we are joined by Sports Illustrated’s Tony Ferrari to profile Mintyukov and how his game has matured since the start of the season. We discuss what he needs to work on to make it to the next level (9:00). We compare Kevin Korchinski and Pavel Mintyukov and which one Tony prefers (17:00), if Pavel Mintyukov is a larger version of the San Jose Sharks’ Ryan Merkley (21:00), and where he thinks Mintyukov ends up being drafted (24:00).
