Kirill Petrov of Ak Bars Kazan was invited to New York Islanders‘ rookie camp. The 20 years old player will most likely leave the KHL this summer and will report to North America, according to Petrov’s agent Vyacheslav Makhrensky.

Petrov was U20 team Russia’s top scorer at the latest WJC. He’s got little chances with Ak Bars this year and he has been demoted down to Kazan’s affiliates in the Russian First League, Neftyanik Almetievsk. In the KHL he played only eight regular season games, without getting any point.

    He is lucky that somebody took him at all, with his current contract with the KHL team. As long as he young he can learn how to play to imprese the big bosses in the NHL. He got skills and 90% of the time he can’t show it on the KHL. Good luck to him
