Interesting to see Avtsin at this practice with all these NHLers - I wonder who took him to the practice? It's nice to see that our players are around this summer doing these sort of things - or perhaps this used to go on all the time and now with the social media we just hear about it.

Is Avtsin signed with Alan Walsh's agency?

It's the Octagon hockey camp. For almost all the players represented by Octagon Hockey agents. And these types of things have been going on forever. I don't know if it was always organized by their agents.

Seems kinda lanky in that picture...

"Alexander Avtsin, Montreal Canadiens top prospect" - He doesn't know who PK Subban is?

Not really.




Would you guess that Ovechkin is 230 lbs from this picture?

And yeah, that could quite possibly be the most vague post ever.

Have you ever seen videos of him in the KHL?

Most times he's the fastest player on the ice.

Walsh at it again:

I guess he doesn't represent Subban, Eller, or Leblanc so they don't exist.

Wow... I laugh at people who still despise Walsh and consider him a moron.

1. If he kept his mouth shut, odds are that we might not even have gotten a 2nd rounder for Halak.

2. It's pretty clear he meant "one of the top prospects", and that he perfectly knows that there are other great young players out there.

Calm down people...

As for Avtsin, 3 goals sure is great to hear, but the sole fact that he's on the ice, playing in scrimmages and practicing with other players with his wrist healthy is plenty of good news to me.

To be fair, most of the clips online of him bursting past other players on the ice are from his MHL games. But I think I had read that his KHL team had a skills competition and he was by far the fastest skater.

Have to say, I was a little worried when I saw Avtsin tweeted by Walsh, I was worried he was one of his clients.
