from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post,
Yakupov mostly has been playing left wing on a line with Duchene, the center, and rookie Alex Kerfoot.
“That line has been really good in camp. All three of those guys,” Avs coach Jared Bednar said. “I think they’ve found a little chemistry there. Hopefully that will continue and get better and better.”
When asked if he thinks Yakupov will be used in a top-six forward role to begin the season, Bednar quickly said: “Yes.”
“There’s no doubt that he’s talented. There’s no doubt he has a lot of skill,” Landeskog said of Yakupov. “He had some injuries, some tough seasons, but we’re happy that he’s here. What I’ve seen from him so far, I’m really impressed.”
