Trineyev is a 6-foot-3, 198-pound winger that has played for Russia’s international junior teams at all age levels. Notably, he had four points in four games for the U18 Russian team at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup.
Four and a half hours after today's portion of NHL Draft started, the #Caps finally make their 2nd pick, taking RW Bogdan Trineyev at No. 117 in 4th round. Red Line Report projects him as "crease crashing third line power winger," and says his style compares to James vanRiemsdyk.

NHL Central Scouting has Trineyev ranked as their 28th best European skater in this class. In 36 games in the MHL last season, he scored 12 goals and had 26 points in 36 games. So far this season in seven games at the same level, he has four goals and seven total points.
Trineyev actually played earlier today in a 9-2 Dynamo victory. He grabbed a power-play assist on the fourth goal.
