Alexei Yemelin - Still a good potential ?

Hi everebody.

Here's an Habs fan seeking opinions about one of our russian propects, Alexei Yemelin. A couple years ago, Yemelin seemed to be a central piece of the defensive core of his country junior team. If I'm not mistaken, he also played for the national team in a one or two World Championship.

Yet, since Yemelin was injured last year, we hear less and less of him. Is he still a dominant defenseman in the KHL ? Is he still as gritty and physical as he was a couple year ago ? I imagine playing in the same defensive squad (AK Bars Kazan) than Ilya Nikulin must be helping him a litte...

Also, like each year, do you think Yemelin will travel to North America to join the Canadiens one day ?

Thanks in advance.
