Default The Illya Nikolaev and Other Protects Playing in Russia Thread

Since the KHL season under way, might as well dedicate a thread to the topic.

Illya Nikolaev will start the season in the MHL with Loko Yaroslavl. His first game of the season will be tomorrow at 10:00 am MST.

Spencer Foo is with Kunlun Red Star. They have played three games so far, including one today. Foo has yet to register a point, Kunlun has one 2 of 3 to start the season though.

Pavel Karnaukhov is still playing with CSKA Moskva. He is pointless in two games.

Loko has already played 2 games this season. No points -1 for Nikolayev so far.

Loko also won the Sirius Junior Club World Cup in Sochi back in August where Niko had 1a in 5 games. The tournament featured an AJHL U20 team, NAHL team, Modo's U20 team among others. Loko pretty much dominated the whole tournament.

Will be also interesting to see how much longer Kunlun lasts in the KHL.

They were fined by the KHL in their last game because the gates at the benches and penalty boxes were not working properly during the game. This was in front of a crowd of 800 people in Shanghai.

What kind of ice time are they getting?

Those Euro leagues can be ruthless to young players

I wasn't aware of the precarious financial situation in Kunlun. Would Foo have an Out Clause?

Foo wouldn't necessarily have one, but if the team folds the contracts are voided.
