        First year in NA.
        Passed over twice in the draft.
        Offensive skills, great shot, plus skating.
        Has knock for being allergic to defense.

          "The Draft Analyst" had him the top overager available in the draft.

          Ivan Kosorenkov, RW, Victoriaville Tigres, QMJHL
          Height: 6'0"
          Weight: 189 lbs.
          Shoots: Left
          Born: January 22, 1998 Nizhnekamsk, Russia
          Draft: 2016 CHL Import Draft Round #1 (24th overall) by the Victoriaville Tigres
          Undersized but competitive Russian winger Ivan Kosorenkov flew under the radar most of the season and turned in an impressive finish to his rookie season by scoring 34 goals and 63 points in 68 games. Was considered a passenger much of the first half of the season but turned it on in the second half and really impressed with his ability to take over the game. At times he needs to not try to do it all by himself and use his linemates more but really started to pick up on his own mistakes and worked real hard to improve. Quick feet down low and creates space for himself effectively. Always in the right place at the right time and scored 25 power play points and six game winners. Showed much more consistency and his ability to take over the ice during the postseason, scoring two goals and four points but falling to Chicoutimi in 4 games.

          DID YOU KNOW? Spent the 2015-16 season playing for MHK Spartak Moskva in the MHL, scoring five goals and seven points in 11 games. He also scored 13 goals and 20 points playing for the U18 Russian team in the MHL. Took part in the U19 World Jr. A Challenge for Russia scoring 2 goals in 4 games.

            Not to nit-pic but he wasn't an overager.
