But he's been a plus player throughout his career so I'm guessing that's no luck, he must be pretty sound defensively as well as offensively.

And scoring in Elitserien usually translates into KHL pretty well. Only D who failed to repeat his Elitserien numbers in the KHL was Puistola. Others - Kronwall, Niskala, Hietanen, Maenpaa, Jaakola - were as successful. Obviously he's not going to be a PPG player but 30 points - no problem. I think he was the best D on the market without a shadow of doubt so it was a great job by Magnitka to get him.

How many hockey transfers of this kind - where 18 year old supertalent is being transfered from one team which just made it to the Cup finals to the other - do you know about?
