Khokhlachev brings with him a lot of hype. But let's be serious, it is all deserving. He is an offensive force, an excellent skater and stick handler and makes some jaw dropping tape to tape passes while turning on a dime. It's just what the Doctor ordered for a Windsor team that will be minus a few stars from their 2 time Memorial Cup winning teams.
Watching him in a training camp scrimmage, he made things happen every time he was on the ice and the Spits will be counting heavily on his offensive prowress. On Monday he scored 3 goals and added an assist in a 6-2 exibition win over the Plymouth Whalers.
Khokhlachev seems genuine in his words that he wants to play in North America and the NHL, but didn't deny that one day he would like to play for Spartak in the KHL but only for Spartak.
In a recent interview he was asked about his situation compared to 2010 draft pick Kirill Kabanov. Khokhlachev simply replied
"Everyone has his destiny. I don't want to talk about Kirill Kabanov, I've got my own life."
