The top Russian-bred prospect, Lyashenko is one of the top 
defensive forwards available.  Scouts also like his leadership
and character and there's a slim chance he could sneak into the 
first round.  He impressed at the World Junior Championships,
where he was used as a third-line center and picked up a goal
and two assists in a strictly defensive role.  Playing among
lesser talent, Lyashenko has shown flashes of offensive 
brilliance.  Most agree he could improve his skating, however.
