Chudinov re-ups with KHL team

One of the main knocks on Russian players in the NHL [1] draft is the fear of the KHL. The Bruins have just realized that fear — kind of– ¬†as their first seventh round pick, Maxim Chudinov, has re-signed with Severstal Cherepovets, his KHL team. The defenseman wasn’t expected to be in the short-term mix anyway, so his two-year deal ultimately shouldn’t impact the Bruins either way.

“When we knew that the Bruins drafted him, I phoned him and congratulated [him],” his agent said according to this report [2]. “He was really glad that a NHL [3] team showed interest in him. I hope he’ll get a spot with the Bruins in the next few years.”

Chudinov was the 195th overall pick. He had 13 points last season.
