Nikita Kucherov Bio

Kucherov was a second-round pick (No. 58) by Tampa Bay in the 2011 NHL Draft, but he has played like a first-round talent.

After the draft, the 5-foot-11, 178-pound forward from Moscow remained in Russia, then played junior hockey in Quebec before joining Syracuse of the American Hockey League for the 2013-14 season. He did not stay long; he had 13 goals and 24 points in his first 17 games for Syracuse, earning a call-up to the Lightning on Nov. 24, 2013.
