Cons

Size: Alexander Khoklachev is undersized and does not have the size of a forward.

One Year Wonder: Alexander Khoklachev only played one year with Windsor in the OHL this makes me slightly uncomfortable.

Played on Line 2: If he is getting the hype of a top 15 prospect why isn’t he the first line center for Windsor.

My thoughts on Alexander Khoklachev.  Alexander Khoklachev has line 1 potential, but is best suited starting out as a center who can work his way up to line 2.  He will be ready for the 2012-2013 NHL Season, but he needs one more year of development in the OHL.
