Alexander Khoklachev Makes Russian World Junior Team

This may belong in the Prospects Thread but with so few prospects to make the World Juniors recently and the disappointments with Ferlin, Spooner and Knight I figured I'd create a thread on the second Bruins prospect to make a Top Division squad. Don't have my official source but the European posters in the following thread confirm the final cuts to be Namestnikov, Pedan, Kudinov, Galimov and Zlobin leaving Khoklachev as one of the 12 forwards to make the team: http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=1041965&page=10

Reports are he played on an all OHL line with Telegin and Yakupov (they also played together at the Subway Super Series) and were the best Russian line against the Czechs last night. Playing with Yakupov would put him in a scoring role for sure.

Wow, good for him. He was a steal, I think he's a 1st line talent. Can't wait to watch him and Dougie. We came away from this draft with two players that fell into our lap.

wow good for him

on a side note this team is built with awesome second rounders

Bergeron (2003 45th Overall)
Krejci (2004 63rd Overall)
McQuaid (2005 55th Overall)
Lucic (2006 50th Overall)

and now Khoklachev

Not to mention Marchmont, who was a 3rd.

I'm koo koo for Ko Ko.

Man, has our scouting/talent evaluation improved by a factor of 1000 during the past several years!

Jacobs, Chia and Co. deserve an unbelievable amount of credit for restoring this franchise to where it should be.

Good for Koko....Russia has the best group of forwards in the tourney. Not an easy group for which to make the cut. Great news.

Krejci's little brother made the Czechs, too.

Wow! Is what I said when I saw the Junior stats in this past Wednesday's paper.

I think he has 3 or 4 points on Hamilton.

Woo-hoo!

Khokhlachev is my favorite forward prospect. So happy to hear that he made the team...

It's going to feel really odd cheering for both Canada AND Russia this year.

I think he had a good shot at being an absolute stud. I know I voted for him as the #2 prospect (maybe #1) when there were polls on this board over the summer ranking the Bruins prospects.

Looking forward too seeing him play. That Russian team has some serious firepower up front.

The good news: the NHL Network will be airing several WJC games here in the U.S.

The bad news: they won't be airing any of Russia's games unless they reach the elimination rounds.

Not only would I like to see Koko but Russia has some serious talent and is going to entertaining to watch.

I`m thoroughly convinced that the "scouting" staff was basically a couple of guys who sat around, watched a few highlights of Junior/NCAA/European games and made their evaluations and decisions that way.

It had to be, cuz there is no other explanation for the baffling picks this organization made for many years.

Every team makes draft mistakes, some prospects for a wide variety of reasons just can`t make the jump to pro, I`m almost more impressed at those small aquisitions/trades in which Chia has snagged guys like a Quaider/Boychuk, how about receiving Soupy in the Wideman and Horton package too??? Not sure many here (well I didn`t that`s for sure) anticipated how well he`d fit into a Bruins system.

TSN doing the major coverage here, what I`m most looking forward to, or asking the man/woman/entity upstairs is that Pierre the Monster Maguire remains far away from any microphone during this tournament which I am assuming he is not being part of TSN anymore?????

I know it`s just pre tournament games but Sweden played a fantastic game last night against Team Canada, I like that they took it to our boys, often helps wake a team up with a good ole fashion loss.

You are safe ODAAT, no Pierre for this tournament.

About Koko though, from what I understand, he'll be getting some time with Yakupov on his wing so he'll be given every opportunity. Not sure how much will be 5 on 5 and how much will be PP time, but that'll be good for him to have a dynamic player like Nail flanking him.

PHEW, I get so tired of his act

Thx for the update, I am really excited to actually be able to watch this tournament and have a few prospect of the B`s to watch, which I normally don`t have the opportunity to do.

I`ll be honest, I haven`t had the chance to see Koko play yet, and if he`s flanking the Yak, he`ll surely get his chances, the Russian coaches must think highly of him to put him out there with him too.
