The 5’10”, 181-pound Moscow Russia Native has played in 10 games for Providence this season, where he is third on team in goals with 4 and first in the AHL with 9 assists, where he is tied for a league lead in points with 13. In total, KoKo has tallied 147 career games in the AHL scoring 42 goals, with 74 assists for 116 points.
Khokhlachev was seen alongside David Krejci and Loui Eriksson in the morning rushes at the Garden this morning, so expect Khokhlachev to be put in a good opportunity to succeed.
