Washington Capitals top prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov is currently at home recuperating from shoulder surgery. Two weeks ago, Kuznetsov took an awkward run into the boards during Traktor Chelyabinsk’s second regular season game of the year. Kuznetsov did not finish the game and flew to Germany to be examined before ultimately undergoing surgery on his shoulder.
Traktor Chelyabinsk head coach Valery Belousov spoke to Traktor’s official website on Thursday, providing more insight as to how Kuznetsov got injured. He also spoke about Kuzya’s recent comments regarding staying in Russia if he were offered a 5- to 7-year contract.
