Alexander Avtsin parts with Dynamo Moscow
Alexander Avtsin and Dynamo Moscow decided to break the player's contract as he wants to try and get a spot with the Canadiens, as reported by Sport-Express.
During the last couple of months there was a lot of speculation around Avtsin's contract as he was under contract with Dynamo, but now he decided to report to North America.
Avtsin, 19, will skate in next week's rookie camp with the Habs, and then will skate in the main team's training camp in late August.
The promising right winger had three goals and six assists with Dynamo last year, but a wrist injury in January prematurely ended his season.
