Add Inferno, he's got jam.
See, I knew that people were voting for him because of this. The KHL draft is nothing like the NHL entry draft. It's a waiver draft for prospects, that's it.
All the junior teams are tied to adult teams, but at the age of 18, they have to dump a couple players, so being #1 overall is like being the "best of the rest" of Russian prospects.
If the Russians thought Pashnin was any good, they would have protected him from the draft. That he was exposed is a sign that they see him as a future third-pairing defenseman in the KHL.
