This past offseason Alexander Khokhlachev thought it would be better for him to return home and play for Moscow Spartak in the KHL. But he may be rethinking that decision. Khokhlachev hasn't produced the numbers that he had become accustomed to while playing for the Windsor Spitfires of the OHL. In a reduced role, Khokhlachev has just two points in 19 games for Spartak.
But Khokhlachev's return to Canada with the Russian national junior team has brought about thoughts about returning to the Spitfires.
"Yeah, I think so, but I don't know and I don't want to talk yet," Khokhlachev told The Windsor Star's Jim Parker.
Khokhlachev recorded 145 points in two seasons with the Spitfires, the 19-year-old had struggled in the KHL.
"We're not a really good team this year and I'm not scoring goals, but the experience is good for me," Khokhlachev told Parker. "It's tough to lose a lot and not score goals, but it's fine. I come every day to rink and work hard and it will be good."
But things got a little tougher for Khokhlachev this week, who took a blocked a slap shot with his head. Reports are that he is fine and should be back on the ice when he returns to Moscow.
