VIDEO: Preds prospect Kamenev gets first KHL point of the year

While it’s a bit disappointing that Nashville Predators prospect Vladislav Kamenev couldn’t get out of his KHL contract in order to join the Quebec Remparts of the QMJHL, at least he’s making things happen back in Russia.

Kamenev, Nashville’s second pick in the 2014 NHL Draft this past June, got some power play time from head coach Mike Keenan and helped set up Florida Panthers prospect Yaroslav Kosov on the eventual game-winning goal. His Metallurg Magnitogorsk club would go onto win 4-1.

The helper was Kamenev’s first career assist at the KHL level. He played in 16 games last season and, despite seeing limited action as a 17-year old, registered one goal.

Side note #1: It takes some guts to wear the number 99 in any league. Props to him.

Side note #2: Yes, the opposing goalie was former Preds prospect Atte Engren.
