Heres a look at each of them
Nikita Filatov, LW He was once known as one of the top prospects in the NHL. Thats intill he bolted to the KHL because he was “not geting alot of playing time” in my opinon i think that he has a awful additude and if he dont change i see him staying in the KHL. There is also a chance that the blue Jackets trade him at the draft this year. Filatov who is 19 years old is 6 foot tall and 185 pounds played 13 games this year with the Jackets and had 2 goals.
