The Knights picked Prokhorkin as protection on the chance finnish defenceman Olli Maatta, the Pittsburgh first-rounder who would obviously one of London's two import players, happens to stick in the nhl next year -- or Zadorov, a first-round pick in the Kontinental Hockey League's Junior draft, fails to show up.
"He's a '93 (birth year) and property of the L.A. Kings and his first goal is to make their
American Hockey League team
," Hunter said, "but if he doesn't, he
might fall to us
"You go in with a plan and you have to be prepared if things change."
Vladislav Namestnikov knows Prokhorkin. He played against him in the russian junior ranks.
"I would call him a good two-way forward," said the former Knight, a pretty good two-way forward himself.
"Seeing russians being picked like this, i think, shows more are willing to come over and play here," Vladislav said. "It's good to see and a lot of them there do know about London. They know it's one of the better places to play in the CHL."
