Highlights
1-time U20 WJC Bronze Medal 1

He's a great puck-mover. Rafkin can execute the breakout through traffic and always places his passes in a position for his teammates to take them without breaking stride. He's physical, and I like his skating patterns off of the puck to support his partner on exits and defensive zone puck retrievals. -EliteProspects 2020 NHL Draft Guide
