Columbus Blue Jackets 2023-24 Season Preview: Dmitry Voronkov

This is a guy that we have had our eye on for what seems like an eternity. Voronkov fills a lot of needs within the CBJ organization: he’s a center that plays well on both sides of the puck; bringing good size, plenty of strength, some toughness, and a scoring touch to his game. Last year in the KHL, he was a solid middle-six player for Ak Bars Kazan, finishing 7th on the team in scoring and continuing to lead the way physically.

The Jackets have been patient with Voronkov, allowing him to develop at a slower pace back home, a move that has paid off nicely with recent Russian-born players like Vladislav Gavrikov and Kirill Marchenko.
