According to TSN's Frank Seravalli, the Montreal Canadiens have their eyes set on young Russian forward Vitali Kravtsov of the New York Rangers.

He collected two goals and an assist in his first game, including this great goal:

There is no lack of talent on Kravtsov's side, but it seems that he doesn't fit in the Rangers organization?
