Washington Capitals top prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov is a lot of things: a world champion, a waffler, a three-time KHL All-Star, WJC MVP, and an NHL first-round pick. Add to the list college graduate.
Last Thursday, Hornews.ru’s Alla Tsipordey reported that Kuznetsov graduated from Ural State University of Physical Education — a school located in the 21-year-old’s hometown — with a four-year bachelor’s degree in winter sports.
To complete his training and actually graduate, Kuznetsov had to give another kind of clutch performance. This time he had to defend his thesis on — this is not a joke — penalty killing.
We’ll let Tsipordey explain.
