Scouting Reports:
“Big bodied forward that plays a very versatile style of hockey, Safin is a jack of all trades that can play in all situations, protects the puck well and can be dominant in the cycle game, speed isn’t top notch but is strong on his skates and is hard to knock off the puck; responsible three-zone player.” – Brandon Holmes, Riding Pine Hockey

“A big and strong power forward…uses his size well as he powers himself through traffic and to the greasy areas on the ice…effective whenever he drops his shoulder and drives to the net…has impressive reach and strength allowing him to be a monster at protecting the puck…has the ability to build up some solid speed driving down the wing and possesses impressive quickness in small spaces for such a big guy…not a guy to really deke and dangle the puck one-on-one but does have solid hands and can pull off a skilled move when needed…dangerous finisher as his one-timer is lethal…has a quick release and tremendous power…tough customer who finishes his checks, wins battles along the boards and looks to drive his body through his opponent ever chance he gets…forechecks hard and disrupts due to his speed and reach; giving a solid defensive effort…has solid smarts and room to continue to grow his two-way game.  (November 2016)” – Future Considerations
