The kids are alright

It should come as no surprise that Los Angeles’ Anze Kopitar, making a bid for the Calder trophy, was the focus of every collector and dealer yesterday. That’s not to say, though, that he was the only young King worthy of hounding.

Granted, the Kings aren’t enjoying their best season, but they have an abundance of talent that could prove formidable once its matures in age and skill – Alexander Frolov, Kopitar, Patrick O’Sullivan and Konstantin Pushkaryov.

At day’s end, I added at least one puck from each player – top row: Frolov and Kopitar; bottom row: O’Sullivan and Pushkaryov. I even had Pushkaryov sign an 8x10 showing him with the Manchester (N.H.) Monarchs.

Also signing pucks yesterday were Kevin Dallman, Mattias Norstrom and Lubomir Visnovsky.

Kopi!!

great sigs... I couldn't guess the bottom two but they're nice.

I think he typically spells it Pushkarev but for some reason Upper Deck insists on putting "Pushkaryov" on their website.

Yeah, I don't know what's up with his last name. It's my guess that Pushkarev is the North American version. Back home, in Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, it's most likely Pushkaryov.
