Pens do not sign D Anton Belov, Oilers do

Postby Gaucho on Thu May 30, 2013 7:47 am

Dmitry Chesnokov ‏@dchesnokov 33m
Belov's agent would not confirm he'll sign with the #Pens, but said the deal "with an NHL team" is close. (ITAR)

Dave Molinari ‏@MolinariPG 24m
Big, skilled. MT @dchesnokov #KHL Avangard D Anton Belov is looking to join #Pens this offseason (per SovSport). Avangard has released him.


26-year-old Russian defenseman who recently played for Avangard Omsk. Undrafted, 6'4", 185. Don't know anything about, but found this odd statline:

2011-12 Omsk Avangard KHL 50 0 6 6 30 2
2012-13 Omsk Avangard KHL 46 9 17 26 30 19

Those stats represent a major offensive improvement over one season, but at 6'4" 185, he'll obviously need to fill out a little more to have success over here.

By big I'm assuming molinari means tall.

Yeah, he seems awfully light for such a big man.

I didn't catch any of the WC's games, so unfortunately I've never seen him play.

Well, maybe they only sign him to sing the anthems:

I'm shocked a defense man would sign with this organization when there are teams that really could use the defensive depth.

Right, have to imagine that's what turned off Sustr, who by the way the Baby Pens are playing against in the Calder Cup playoffs.

What's not to love about Belov?
He failed a drug test and kicked a Capitals prospect with his skate.

But can he have as big an impact on the Pens as "Russian Sniper*?"

He'll score the game winner in the SCF next season.

Ok, another site went a little bit further:

"A large defenseman, Belov is still an excellent skater. He can control the offensive game with his passing skills and hard shot. Could improve his defensive game."

I found that Belov's likes are:
Long walks on the beach and puppy dog breath.

He was suspended for a pre-workout supplement that is not banned by the NHL. To say he was suspended for "DRUGS" is a bit misleading.

interesting tidbit, but until he actually sings, I'm filing this under "whatever" while I continue to go insane for the next Pens Playoff game!

I'm dying alive over here.
