Hockey’s Future continued to touch upon all of the youth leagues and professional leagues that are not the NHL.
This time, they touched upon the Top Centers of the Kontinental Hockey League. They admitted that it was a thin group but the players included are top prospects in the KHL nonetheless.
Here is what they had to say about the unsigned draft pick, Artur Gavrus:
Gavrus was drafted by the Devils after a good season with the Owen Sound Attack of the OHL, and this season decided to sign a one-year deal with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL. His season wasn’t too good, as he managed to score just one goal during the season while adding just three helpers. But the season has been a disaster since the start for the whole team, which missed the playoffs once again. On the bright side, Gavrus was the top scorer and one of the top forwards at the recent WJC Div. 1A tournament, where Belarus finished in third place. Gavrus scored five goals and 11 points in the six games of the tournament. His one-year deal is set to end soon, so it is yet to be seen where Gavrus will play next season.

Along with Gavrus, Bogdan Yakimov (Edmonton Oilers) and Nikolai Prokhorkin (Los Angeles Kings) were the other two that were in the group among drafted players.
