He and his Huskies had a satisfying win on Friday when Kucherov’s new team beat his old team, 4-1. Kucherov was traded from Quebec after a decision was made to sit Kucherov as an “extra” import player. A trade was worked out to benefit both teams.

Nikita Kucherov extended his point streak to eight games with a goal and an assist against Acadie-Bathurst. He now has four points in two games since joining Rouyn-Noranda. He has also “starred” in both games. So far he’s looking like a fine acquisition for the Huskies.

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Quebec Remparts 3 @ Shawinigan Cataractes 2 (OT)

W Nikita Kucherov, QUE: Did not play
Season totals: 6 GP, 3-7-10, -1, 2 PIM

Nikita Kucherov sat for the second straight game, then after the game reports began to surface that Kucherov was on the QMJHL trading block. One reporter said Kucherov had been playing “lazy.” Quebec has three import players and one has to move, though it was assumed Kucherov and his good friend Mikhail Grigorenko would be the ones staying. Nick Sorensen is the other import player. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Kucherov was a surprise Import Draft selection because few expected him to be interested in coming to North America. Quebec’s Patrick Roy knew something others didn’t, and having Grigorenko on the Remparts was no doubt a big help in getting that talented Kucherov to North America. Kucherov could choose to return to Russia if he’s not happy with his next playing situation. Stay tuned.
