Embarrassing Debut For Matvei Michkov in the KHL.

Published August 24, 2023 at 4:36

We've been talking about it for months: the Matvei Michkov phenomenon was passed over by six teams in the NHL draft, and many Canadiens fans were furious that Kent Hughes let him slip through his fingers.

We'll have to wait a few more years to find out if this was a good decision, but in the meantime, we can judge by what we see.

The KHL has started and Michkov was playing today. It really didn't go well. He was said to be dragging his feet, making bad turnovers and sinking his team. In short, he only played five minutes in the game.

Bad encounters can happen to anyone. Especially since he's so young! What's important is how he responds to the next duel. If he has character, he won't resent his head coach and he'll bounce back stronger.
