Things are looking good for Romanov joining the Habs next season

4 décembre 2019
If the sources are to be believed, the Montreal Canadiens are very close to having highly-touted defensive prospect Alexander Romanov join the team next season. As has been highly publicized, Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin recently traveled to Russia to meet with the 19-year-old in an attempt to convince him not to re-sign when his current contract with CSKA Moscow runs out in a few months. A couple of accounts have that meeting pegged as being a success for Bergevin.


According to Aivis Kalnins, who covers the KHL and European teams for HockeyBuzz, the meeting between Bergevin and Romanov was a good one and there is a "big chance" the young blueliner makes his way to North America next season.



Pierre LeBrun of TSN is also reporting a productive meeting, although he stresses no decision will come until the end of the KHL season. The KHL is known for putting a lot of pressure on homegrown talent to stay in Russia rather than making the jump to the NHL, and it's very likely Romanov will be feeling that pressure all season long.



Romanov is a draft pick of the Canadiens, so if he is making his way to the NHL, it's with the Habs unless the team trades his rights to someone else.

Perhaps not as encouraging for Habs fans is the report on Konstantin Okulov. The 24-year-old, who has been tied to the Habs by Eliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, has put up some very solid numbers in the KHL and appears to be interested in making the jump to North America after this season when he becomes a free agent. Bergevin was also rumoured to be meeting with him while in Russia. When asked about the meeting, Kalnins was much more reserved with his report than he was regarding the meeting with Romanov, simply stating Okulov has many options at the moment and it's still anyone's guess where he lands after this season.
