“Returning to Ak Bars is a great development for Svechnikov, says Konkov

Double winner of the Gagarin Cup Sergei Konkov commented on the striker’s transition Evgeniya Svechnikova V “AK Bars” .

Ak Bars announced on Friday the signing of a two-year contract with Svechnikov, 26. The forward was selected by the Detroit Red Wings in the 2015 NHL Draft, 19th overall. The Russian also played for the Winnipeg Jets and the San Jose Sharks, played in 172 league games and scored 45 points (20 goals and 25 assists).

– I think it’s a good option. Evgeny studied the NHL enough, accumulated good experience there. He probably didn’t get any more offers from then on, so he found a great option. Svechnikov, first of all, returned to a fairly strong league. Second, he will play at home. It will be much easier for him to adapt than for the other guys coming back to Russia from North America. The most important task for him now is to get used to the team, to understand the requirements of the coaching staff, to show his game and his result. For Svechnikov, this is an excellent development of events, “RB Sport” quotes Konkov.
