"He's a point a game guy right now and I think it's only going to get better. We've got a 65 to possibly 80-point guy in his first year in the OHL. He's a heck of a player."
The Kings signed Loktionov to a three-year contract in August and Emerson saw similar traits from the moment the kid arrived in Hollywood.
"He came to L.A. early in August and just practised with the pros," Emerson said. "His ability and his skill set are at such a high end, he fit right in. "
How do you pronounce that exactly
