Maxim just scored 2 goals and was one of the best players in his KHL debut. Not too shabby for a 16-year old playing his first game in the 2nd best pro league in the world!

Here's what it says about him on Metallurg Novokuznetsk's official site:

91 Кицын Максим 24.12.1991

Постоянный игрок сборных России своего возраста, хоккеист о котором с самых ранних лет много говорили и писали. Наверное нелегко находиться под постоянным вниманием и психологическим грузом негласного статуса юной звезды, но несмотря на все это уже в нынешнем сезоне Максим вполне может – при должной работе и доверии тренеров - продемонстрировать новокузнецким любителям хоккея свои лучшие качества. Отличное владение шайбой, техническое оснашение, нестандартное катание, отличный кистевой бросок да и много еще что.

Quick translation: Constant member of the Russian national teams in his age category, a hockey player about whom much has been talked and written since he was very young. Perhaps it's not easy to be under so much scrutiny and psychological pressure due to a status of a young star. Despite that, already this season Maxim can, with hard work and trust from the coaching staff, show Novokuznetsk fans his best qualities. Excellent puckhandling, technical skills, non-standard skating style, excellent wrist shot and much much more.
