Interesting how Alex Galchenyuk has dropped off the charts now (due to injury - although knee injuries can be a bitch). I kind of wonder if that is something that will work to a team drafting late's favor. He's a much better player than 17, but because he's hurt now, he hasn't been able to prove himself. if the Oilers pick anywhere in 20th, I'd do what I could to get him, even if we need to move up. He's got a great release and is way too good of a player than this ranking suggests.

There's also the Russian factor, although he is playing in the OHL.

Frk is also out with a concussion, has not played a game this season.

Yah actually I thought he was American, because he's born in the U.S. (although the last name implies his heritage is in the neighborhood of Russia - Ukraine, Russia, etc., etc), but I guess he's Belarussian. Not sure where this kid has grown up and lived. He speaks with an accent, so it's obvious he hasn't always lived in the U.S.

At any rate, I would have to say that the fear of him being the typical ship-jumping Russian is not warranted here though. For the U-18 tourney (Ivan Hlinka tourney), he choose to represent the U.S.. That doesn't get you re-entry into the motherland (and well, it's moot anyways, since he's Belarussian). Plus, Igor Larionov is his agent, and I have a lot of respect for him. I think he'll keep the kid on the right path.

Looks like He was born in the US while his dad played in the IHL in the early 90s.

Ahhh nice investigation :P

So following his dad's career, he would have been born here during his dad's IHL days, as you noted, and bounced around a bit between here and Europe and likely settled back in Europe probably from basically his school years onward.
