Pavel Dorofeyev's offensive abilities are well-known. He's able to protect the puck and make plays for the Vegas Golden Knights. However, the Russian winger is shifty on the ice, making him a tough match-up. Overall, the Golden Knights move at a faster pace while he's on the ice, making them a dangerous rush team.

Granted, things can change in the playoffs. If the unexpected happens, it could provide the forward with the opportunity to prove himself. That way, the legend of Dorofeyev would continue to grow.
