The KHL's rising Star and the leader of the HC Tractor Yevgeny Kuznetsov is very likely to remain in our league next season, writes Sport-Express reporter Igor Larin.
"Frankly I've made a decision to pursue my career in the KHL," said the 19-year-old to Igor Larin during the KHL-TV "The Icing Show" which will be aired tonight. "At the same time It is not completely clear yet with which hockey club I will continue my career."
I wouldn't be surprised if he stays in Russia, money-wise and ice-time wise Kuznetsov is better off in KHL. Add to this his early marriage with a probability of having a baby soon and it is clear that staying in Russia requires much less effort and gives more stability to him.
On the other hand, Igor Larin has a "reputation", so until we see that video from KHL-TV's "The Icing Show" it is too early to consider it is 100% true. Besides he can change his decision as many times as he wants.
