HISTORY
Caught the attention of NHL scouts in 1993 with his silky smooth skating ability while playing in the Russian junior league. The Sharks took a chance on him by drafting him in the sixth round in 1994. He immediately showed what he is capable of by leading Russia (Silver Medal) in scoring with 8 goals and 2 assists during the 1995 World Junior Champioships.

He made the move to North America in 1996, playing for Manitoba of the IHL. He ranked sixth in scoring for Manitoba, yet only played in 42 games for the Moose. He started the 1997 season in San Jose and scored his first NHL goal on opening night. He would play 19 games for San Jose throughout the season, but had a stint with Kentucky playing in 44 games.

Alex played in 55 games for San Jose during the 1998-99 season and was named the team MVP after scoring 12 goals and 18 assists. He was named runner-up for NHL rookie of the month honors in February after scoring five goals and four assists. Finished the year 8th in scoring among rookies.

His numbers slightly improved in 1999-2000, where he scored 14 goals and 21 assists in 57 games.

SCOUTING REPORT
Alex reminds you a lot of a young Pavel Bure with his skating style and puck handling ability. If he learns to fool goaltenders like Bure than the Sharks have themselves a steal. Can be dangerous in tight quarters because of his skating ability, but he still lacks the ability to finish with consistency.

Can play with an edge, and isn't unwiling to jump into a scrum. His size is detriment when things get chippy, but his game is about making defensemen look foolish with the puck, not his fists. Needs to concentrate on fundamentals.
