Question: Is there a risk with Kitsyn (not leaving the KHL)?

FUTA: “I don’t think there’s much of a risk. This kid has made a commitment, similar to our Loktionov situation. He has made a commitment where he wants to come over and play major-junior hockey. He has a contract right now. He’s working through it. I think there’s a good chance, and if he starts the season in the KHL, we’re not worried about it. There’s a good chance that he will, at some point, end up playing major junior, whether it’s this year or next year. We’re not going to put any pressure on him. He’s a young kid. As long as he’s getting regular ice time, playing against men, we know his goal is the same as these other young kids, like Voynov and Loktionov, to be playing over here. So we’re not worried about the risk of whether he will be here. We’re worried about getting him in the best development situation.”
