Senators' Egor Sokolov: Gets first NHL goal
Sokolov scored his first NHL goal in a 7-4 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday.
It ended up as the winner. It was also his first NHL point. Sokolov broke in alone on Brian Elliott off a turnover by Lightning defender Erik Cernak, and he slid the puck five-hole early in the second period. "Sharkalov" is late bloomer who was passed over twice at the draft before the Sens nabbed him in the second round (2020). His shot is electric and his personality is, too. Sokolov is already becoming a fan fave in Canada's capital.... See More ... See Less

Sokolov was promoted from AHL Belleville on Tuesday.
Sokolov has yet to make his NHL debut this season, instead racking up 19 goals and 36 assists in 67 games with AHL Belleville.

Senators' Egor Sokolov: Signs entry-level contract
Sokolov signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Senators on Friday.
The Senators selected Sokolov with the 61st overall pick in this year's draft. The 20-year-old Russian spent the 2019-20 campaign with the Cape Breton Eagles of the QMJHL, racking up 46 goals and 46 assists in just 52 games. He could make the jump to the AHL for the 2020-21 campaign, but he's likely still at least a year or two away from making an impact at the NHL level.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Egor Sokolov: Ottawa takes gamble on over-ager
Sokolov was drafted 61st overall by the Senators at the 2020 NHL Entry Draft on Wednesday.
A distinct lack of speed led to Sokolov being passed over in both the 2018 and 2019 entry drafts. That said, it's difficult to argue against a player who just posted 46 goals and 92 points in 52 games for QMJHL Cape Breton. Sokolov is very big (6-foot-4, 240 pounds) and has excellent hands. He's not going to create many plays off the rush, but he's borderline dominant in down low. There's a bunch of risk here given Sokolov's age and heavy feet, but he clearly has multiple NHL-caliber traits. Just approach with caution -- he needs to show up as a regular on NHL ice before any fantasy investment is made here. Even then, he could be confined to bottom-six time.... See More ... See Less
