Mikhail Yunkov on his way to Washington
National Hockey League (NHL) - It looks like Mikhail Yunkov (Washington Capitals) might travel to North America for the 09-10 season, after he stated to Soviet Sports magazine that "the contract with Spartak Moscow is expired now and I decided to test myself in the NHL. I'm going to attend the development camp. I know well that it will be hard for me. Most likely I'll spend there the whole season, even if they will demote me to the AHL." The 23 years old center had a strong 08-09 campaign with Spartak, almost doubling his points production, passing from 10 to 18 points.
That's really encouraging. Will be cool to see him come over, sounds like he's ready to go all in and I'm guessing the team still has interest if they've invited him to the camps.
