This week Detroit Red Wings prospect Dmitri Buchelnikov made it known he has no interest in leaving the KHL. The 2nd round pick of the Wings is a highly touted young talent, that Steve Yzerman was hoping to bring to North America.

Yesterday in KHL action though Buchelnikov got an early taste of pro hockey. As Buchelnikov came across the center of the ice he was hit by Roman Chemerikin and was sent hard to the ice.
