Alexander Khokhlachev's 4-goal game vs. Kitchener

Russian winger and Windsor Spitfire Alexander Khokhlachev wasn't invited to the CHL Top Prospects Game earlier this month, but that doesn't mean that he won't be a high NHL draft pick.

In fact, I know that more than a few NHL scouts were really disappointed that he did not get the invite and several other players did over him. Oh, well-- what are you going to do, right?

But, the highly skilled Spitfire put on a clinic Friday night and our friend Jérôme B. already has the highlights over at his NHL Draft Video blog. I'm linking his site here directly so that in case you didn't know about it, you can go over to his blog and look around at the treasure trove of videos he has there.

Anyway- Khokhlachev is pure skill, baby. I wouldn't at all be surprised if he goes top-10 in the NHL Draft come June. He's a game-breaker, and like Alexander Burmistrov, by coming over to North America has shown a commitment to playing here and will alleviate concerns about signability by doing so. He's one of those guys who, although is small, could be in the NHL next season because his speed and puck skills top shelf

But, don't take my word for it-- just see for yourself.
