it's hard for a young Russian goalie to crack a KHL team. Really, who are the young Russian goalies playing in the KHL: Gelashvilli is 25, Tsaregorodtsev is a back up and also is about 25, Proskuryakov is 22 and considered a young player still, Gayduchenko is #3 in Loko (last year), Galimov was a starter in Ak Bars untill the PO Neftekhimik had two young Russian goalies Horoshun and Kasutin, the first one has left the team and he may end up somewhere as a back up, he's a good player. If am not mistaken Pechurskiy may get a shot as a #2 but I doubt it. So far, on paper he's #2 as Mezin is gone and Metallurg intends to have Proskuryakov as a starter, but that will change if not prior to the season, then definitely before the PO begin. Mind you, Metallurg also has Bobkov who's slightly younger and very talented as well
