Former scout of the Russian national team and commentator of the National Hockey League matches Sergei Fedotov, in an interview with Sport24 correspondent Mikhail Mozharovsky, on the eve of the start of the new season, shared his opinion about the prospects of the Russian striker « Minnesota Wild » Kirill Kaprizov.
“There is an objective picture – this is the level of skill, readiness, experience. If we consider these factors, then I do not see the objective circumstances by which Caprice can fail the season. Maybe he won’t win the Calder Trophy, but it seems to me that Kirill has a lot more factors that speak in his favor. He will definitely be a contender for the best rookie prize of the season.
Whims can be an essential tool for Minnesota to perk up and get the chance to compete for the playoffs.
He was really expected at the club, according to the latest information, he looks pretty good, the Minnesota leadership is pretty, so personally I expect what we saw in his last seasons for CSKA and in his games on the international arena for the Russian national team. He is ready to conquer the highest peaks starting this season, ”Fedotov said.
