Montreal Canadiens draft pick Alexander Avtsin made the Hockey News writer Ryan Kennedy’s “The Hot List”.
Avtsin is ranked at number 6 on his list of prospects where Kennedy quotes Alexander Ovechkin where he said Avtsin was the face of Dynamo junior hockey.
From the website:
6. Alexander Avtsin, RW – Moscow Dynamo (Rus. Jr.): In a recent Puck Daddy interview, Alex Ovechkin called Avtsin the face of Dynamo in junior hockey and with 56 goals and 110 points in 76 games last season, it’s easy to see why. Avtsin will likely stay in Russia for at least one more year. Drafted 109th overall by Montreal in 2009.
Nice to see that Avtsin who dropped in the 2009 draft is still getting some notice. He certainly has some huge potential.
