But I haven't heard word 1 about him yet. Is it just because of how the depth lines up? Or has this guy lost some value on his stock?
What do you expect to hear, and from where? The Bruins? They haven't said anything lately about any of their defensive pospects. From HF?

FWIW, Alexandrov hung around through the early rounds with the Black Aces but then was sent home when the BA squad was trimmed for the later rounds. From end-of-season reports out of Providence he had an OK year, about what they expected. It's a difficult transition, both on and off the ice. I'm sure they gave him a workout program and are hoping he gets stronger.

I'm guessing he'll be back at dev. Camp next month. I like him a lot, but I would not bet on him making the big squad for a while.
