Gare Joyce/SPORTSNET: Loktionov "the second best Russian in the OHL"
In the first period Andrei Loktionov set the template for all action to come. His pair of first period goals showed off a great pair of hands and a high hockey IQ - he must have taken it to heart that I labelled him the second best Russian in the OHL. I suspect that Brampton's Grachev will have a better NHL career than the slight-ish Loktionov. No matter, Loktionov lapped him last night.
