Did a bit of research...all I found out was that he got a 5 min boarding major some time in the 08-09 season.

Height 5'10'' (178 cm)
Weight 176 (80 kg)

Meh. Lets see what he does in GR.

Edit: Turns out he's actually 5'11, 194lbs...now Im interested :ph34r:

Awesome.

A young guy who didn't cost the Wings a player, prospect or even a pick is going to play in Grand Rapids with the hope of making the Wings.

What's not to like? The worst case scenario is he gives the Wings depth and adds talent to Grand Rapids.

I agree with Drake. Didn't cost us anything. Hopefully he does something cool, if not... oh well. Best of luck to you Evgeni.

How can you not admire a team that is always out there looking for "bargains." The management of this team is fantastic.

Could someone please explain how a 22 year old can be acquired without going through the draft.

Well, I like this attitude: "I am okay with spending time in the AHL."

But 16 points in 62 games in a Euro league? That's gotta translate to what, 3 points in 82 games in the NHL? Probably will never leave Grand Rapids but it doesn't hurt to give him a tryout.

I never heard of him before. At first I thought it was the high-skill prospect in this year's draft that said he's committed to playing in the KHL. How did the Wings get ahold of him?

Those leagues are often populated by ex-NHLers and 'couldn't make it in the NHL' types. Young guys usually have unimpressive numbers there. It's pretty much the opposite of the QMJHL where high point totals are arguably meaningless given how many guys fail to translate that to the pro game (prospects with the strength of an 8 year old anemic can score 100pts in the Q).

Also note that he's an unsigned defenseman so his point totals aren't supposed to be terribly impressive at this stage.

It is actually 16 points in 53 games, and he plays in the KHL which I feel comfortable saying it is the second best league in the world just behind the NHL. Here is his HockeyDB page.

I'm betting that a Wings scout watching draft eligible players happened to see this guy play and let Holland or Nill know about his potential.

You could argue that the SEL is on par with the KHL.

He put up 16 points in 53 games in the KHL at age 22. There is definitely some offensive potential there, I guess we will see when the time comes.

Well either way I'm definitely intrigued. Sounds like he plays with an edge and likes to take the body. Judging by his stats he seems to have some offensive potential too. I'm guessing he will be given every chance to make the team because I can't see him staying in GR too long. I guess that means the end of meech and lilja.

"I'm Ken Daniels along with Mickey Redmond and welcome to tonight's debate: Which league is better? The KHL or SEL? Please welcome our speakers and special guests, each of whom represent their home country; Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg".

I'm intrigued for that debate. Anyone else?

So an undersized version of Staffan Kronwall?

Vladimir Konstantinov, Height 5.11 -- Weight 176 , hit like a train.
You don't have to be 6'4" 230Lb to deliver the goods guys.
The Wings wouldn't have this guy over for nothing.

"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop

I feel like the Konstantinovs of today, if there are any, are already in the NHL or go within the top 20.
