Khovanov arrives in Moncton


On Tuesday the Moncton Wildcats held a press conference to introduce Russian forward Alex Khovanov. The Wildcats selected Khovanov with the second overall selection in 2017 CHL Import draft.

The 17-year-old was dealing with illness for the last few months which delayed his arrival in Moncton. Khovanov spent last season with Kazan of the MHL recording eight goals and 22 points in 29 games. Khovanov could make his Wildcats debut this weekend with Moncton hosting a pair of games.
