If it feels like we're providing daily updates on Pavel Buchnevich, you'll have to excuse us. Rest assured that when Buchnevich plays a game in the KHL without doing something noteworthy, we won't fudge an update just for the sake of providing you with something to look at.
But here we are, seven games into Buchnevich's Severstal's season, and the forward prospect is a point-a-game player, racking up three goals, and four assists.
How did he get there? Buchnevich entered Severstal's game Thursday with five points in six games. Then, with his team trailing by a pair, the kid took over, assisting (and just saying "assisting" is an understatement) on a score to bring the game within one, and then drawing a penalty, and assisting on a tying score with just over two minutes to go.
Pavel Buchnevich will raise your property taxes, drive you out of your commercial retail space, and demolish the building afterwards just because he can.
Severstal would go on to win the game in a shootout. Buchnevich doesn't turn 20 until this April.
