Maxim Kitsyn (apparently, reportedly, potentially, presently) returns

Assistant GM Ron Hextall confirmed to us recently - word is that left wing Maxim Kitsyn is expected to sign this week.

via Preliminary info for LA Kings 2013 Development Camp.

  • USHA#17

    Bringing in the wings.

    Meanwhile the Teubert gambit now looks like a good one. Lombardi seems to have known something Lowe and Tambellini didn’t. Last laugh Lombardi.

      They probably would’ve known he sucked if they had actually scouted him. Nobody’s fault but their own.

    Hoping for the best regarding Maxim Kitsyn at LW. I remember his play as being pretty strong along the boards, physical when needed and a good set of hands and eyes. Is his return just for the development camp or is this something longer (Manchester and/or LAKs)?

    • Quisp

      Kitsyn had a KHL contract to play out, which he has now done. Assuming that he signs as he is apparently about to, he will be either in Manchester or LA, almost certainly Manchester.

        Cool. Kings’ just got some young talent at LW. Now back to begging…please pan out, please pan out,please pan out,please pan out,please pan out….in a couple of years, imagine a LAK line of Kitsyn/Loki/Zykov!

        (Poor Loki)

        I don’t recall an all Russian line ever being fielded by LAKs’ since I’ve been following them (mid-80s). That would be cool.
