Observations

July 2018 – Khovanov was drafted second overall in the CHL Import Draft in 2017 and he was considered a potential first-round pick for the NHL draft at that time. But he missed nine months of action because of Hepatitis A, and that’s a big reason why he didn’t get drafted until the third round where the Wild took him 86th overall. Khovanov is a talented playmaking center with good vision and passing skills. His skating needs improvement but part of it might be because he missed so much time during his draft year. He’s a long-term project but could end up being a very good gamble for fantasy hockey leagues.  Jokke Nevalainen
