The Philadelphia Flyers top prospect Matvei Michkov opened up in an interview about his arrival in North America and all the rumors surrounding him.

When the Flyers drafted him in 2023, there was a lot of uncertainty regarding Michkov and his future in the NHL. He was still under contract in the KHL and no one knew if he would be able to leave Russia and move to Philly before 2026.
If it hadn't been for his KHL contract, Michkov would've been drafted before the 7th rank.
There's been a lot of rumors lately about how he could join the Flyers before the start of the next season, which is much sooner than expected.
He opened up about those rumors in an interview, and he didn't confirm nor deny if we'd see him in the NHL next season:
— How is the off-season going?
- Great! I've already had time to rest a little, and now I've started preparing for the new season. I work in the gym, gradually increasing the load. Full of strength, energy and desire to show everything he is capable of.

- In North America they write that you can leave SKA and go to Philadelphia due to bad relations with Roman Rotenberg. Is it so?
"I don't know where such rumors come from." Apparently, someone in America decided that everything could be seen and heard better from there, but this is not so. Roman Borisovich and I have an excellent relationship! We are constantly in touch, talking, he gives a lot of practical and valuable advice - we have complete mutual understanding both with the club and with him personally, which I really appreciate.

— Now there are a lot of rumors circulating on the Internet about where you will continue your career.
How do you react to them?

- I don't pay attention. My job is to be 100% ready and play my best hockey in any situation. I try not to be distracted by reading the news, this only hinders me from fully preparing for the season."

More to come.
