Even some other teams like Quebec might have known Grigorenko was coming but say Chicoutimi would never have a clue he was.
Ok thank you for the input. The Erie Otters desperately need a goaltender for next season and Dansk or Serebryakov seem to be high end players. I hope he comes over and plays but would the NHL team that drafts him (Dansk) be able to sway him and have him come to North America?
