I'm afraid that by the time Kitsyn be ready for senior hockey his skills will not be enough because now his dominance among the boys of same age with him based only on his quicker physical developement.
Kitsyn Maxim is undoubtfully interesting player for future. He played not too strong U-18 Four Nations tournament Nov07 in Dmitrov unfortunately. Way more was expected from him. RUS vs SLOVAKIA 8-3 and only 1 goal + 2 assists. RUS vs Switzerland 8-2. 2 goals + 1 assist. RUS vs USA 2-1 No points. DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to show his dominance... USA team was real test for him.
