Nichushkin top Russian prospect eligible for 2013 NHL draft
As in most years, the
2013 NHL Draft
will be populated with numerous talented
players, many of whom could possibly drop this year because of the ongoing "Russian Factor".
Because of changes made in the previous two collective bargaining agreements, NHL teams have been hesitant to select Russians in the draft, particularly early on. An increasing amount have also moved to North America to play in Canadian juniors, which has further dwindled the amount of players taken directly out of Russia.
That being said, Russia keeps on producing excellent players and the 2013 draft class is no exception.
