This way, he can come over without breaking contractual obligations and he will be able to play for Russia in international tournaments.

Hat-trick in the first game, good start! (albeit preseason).

Thanks for the update, Avy.
I agree with you, history shows us that another year in russia its always good for russian players. Cherepanov is in ideal situation he can play top minutes in his home with awesome players and develop
nicely. What the point of bringing him with his 15 years old girl body in NHL last year or even after the draft? People talk about Kane and Gagner but Hawks and Oilers is not contenders they can afford to suck for a while and develop they kids like Kings did with Frolov and others.

Preseason is nothing i more interested in line combinations. Avangard is particularly KHLs Tampa - crapload of quality forwards with no defense and goaltending.
