After the reported interest in Evgeny Bodrov, the Philadelphia Flyers seems to be going after young goalie Sergei Bobrovsky of Metallurg Novokuznetsk, as per Sport-Express.

Bobrovsky, 21, spent his entire career with Metallurg Novokuznetsk and is the team’s starter goalie for the past three seasons and he always had a saves percentage of more than .900. Playing for one of the weakest KHL teams he faced every night a good amount of shots and showed that he can deal well with pressure.

In his career Bobrovsky represented Russia at the 2008 WJC and at the 2007 Super Series against Canada. His contract will run out in April and the Flyers will have to work hard to secure him as surely most of the top KHL teams are going to offer him good deals. SKA St. Petersburg were among them.

    Always thought this guy had NHL potential, it’s about time he finally generates some interest. Seen him stand on his head many times. Too bad to see him leave though, how is NK ever supposed to get good if their top players leave? This is where the KHL undermines itself, it needs to protect young players from walking away from their clubs (onto other richer clubs). NK has good young players (Kitsyn, Orlov, Telegin etc..)

    Well, that happen in any league in the world, in the NHL too. Kovalchuk just walked away from the team that developed him since he was 18…
