(HockeyStL) -- St. Louis Blues prospect Vladimir Tarasenko has been nothing short of impressive for his youth hockey team Sibir Novosibirsk in Russia.

The 19-year-old right winger has racked up 20 points (5th in KHL) in 18 games played this season for his club including 10 goals and 10 assists.  He is also an assistant captain on the team.

Last season, Tarasenko had 19 points in 42 games played in the KHL.

Scouts say Tarasenko is an all-around good player with a good eye for the game.  He also is a good playmaker and can finish as well.
