continues to impress in MHL (Russian junior league) after switching teams this off-season and looks like a real stud. Would be cool to see him CHL, as for Russian-speaking defensemen Canadian junior leagues don't seem so harmful for their development as for forwards. Can't even remember who was the last Kazakh player in CHL.
Also two other rather intriguing prospects have emerged in VHL (which would be an AHL equivalent in NA). 96' born forward
is almost PPG player already and by reports is one of the most noticeable players on Torpedo Ust-Kamenogorsk roster. They also sport September rookie of the month of the whole league 95' defenseman
. Their both are amongst main reasons why their team right now is leading the league as for most teams the youngsters they are forced to ice (per the rules of the league) for most part are hindering the teams perfomance.
