What a sweet goal he scored in the video
Zlobin wins CHL player of the week after 13 points including a game with 3g + 3a and now has one of highest ppg in the Q.
(95) Andrey Alexeev 7p in past 8 is starting to heat up. Also his teamate Serebryakov who had a slow start is getting a chance to show his game while starter is away at the WJC.
Zykov is nearing 30 goal marker and leads Q rookies in scoring.
Kuptsov traded to Ottawa, now 3rd OHL team
The 1995 Russian generation is potentially golden but many have moved over to the CHL this includes, Goldobin, Zlobin, Tolchinsky, Zadorov, Zykov, Barbashev, Lysenko, Vorobyov we will see if it is a good thing. Dikushin is in the USHL too but like Vorobyov has been for a while.
At least the two I consider have the biggest potential to be elite stayed in Russia and are doing well this includes Nichushkin who is already in the KHL and did well at the WJC and Buchnevich who has also played KHL this season and dominated the MHL.
The 1995 class is very good hopefully the majority of them live up to their potential.
Interesting stat about the WJC which is not really a measure of CHL Vs Staying in Russia but still interesting. The Russian WJC team with the least foreign based players in the past five years won Gold in 2011 (1 CHL player which was Bobkov who was back up). This years and last years team had 5 CHL based players. Like I said it is not a measure but interesting little fact and something to follow.
Oh and Filonenko > Serebryakov
