He was the best player on the team, alongside forwards who went on to Providence, BU, Umass, Merrimack, etc.

It is also true about his relationship with OV, and look for the Caps to take a chance on this kid, as a high risk high reward, and to do keep their franchise man happy.
His father used to be a Spartak Moscow GM for 5-6 years. He left the team two years ago when the team ownership changed. My understanding is that he remains active in the Russian hockey scene.
