Stats for Nichushkin.
His best numbers have come from the MHL and VHL. He's also spent the majority of his season in those two leagues and right now, he's not getting much ice time with Traktor. You'll have to bear with me because I'm not up to speed on scouting in Europe. I don't have a lot of European contacts and the last time I spoke with a European scout, that was what I was informed with regards to Nichushkin - he turned down an opportunity to come to North America and decided to stay in the MHL, which is a lower Russian league. It's not up to the level that the CHL is at and that's what had a lot of scouts seeing red flags. Obviously, from the WJC and the Subway series, the kid has talent. He's one of those players who would have been better served coming to North America.
