What stick does Evgeny Kuznetsov 🦅 use?
Washington forward Evgeny Kuznetsov is one of the NHL's smoothest players, and when he's at his best he makes the game look easy. A two time All-Star and 2018 Stanley Cup champ; "the Birdman" is the subject of today's HSM Pro Stock Spec Check.
On this custom red Flylite, Kuzy opted for the Vapor ADV "BGP2B" build that continues to be one of the most in-demand builds for NHLers looking for a lightweight construction with traditional shaft shapes and tapers. It will be interesting to see if this year's Bauer AG5NT stick, a rumoured Vapor ADV successor has the same level of popularity.
Specs-wise, this stick has a pattern very similar to a P71 Pro Malkin curve with 82 flex, though he often also uses a custom pattern more similar to a P28; as you can you from -40 version code on this twig, he's a bit of a tinkerer.
