08/26/2008 Stanislav Chistov (Boston Bruins) changes clubs again!

Continental Hockey League (KHL) -  Stanislav Chistov (Boston Bruins) has been traded by his new club HC Avangard to HC Metallurg that hails from Magnitogorsk, Russia. The young former #5 overall selection is familiar with his new club, as he was born in Magnitogorsk and has spent the 2005-06 season skating for the club, enjoying significant success. Chistov was traded by Avangard in exchange for a second round selection in the 2009 KHL Entry Draft. This marks as one of the first trades undertaken in Russia of a player for a draft selection, since drafting is a new concept being introduced by the KHL. Metallurgís general manager Gennadi Velichkin had the following to say regarding Chistov in an interview with AllHockey.ru correspondent Alexei Duzenko: Stanislav Chistov (Boston Bruins)ís situation is such. Over the past month we have been negotiating with Omsk and Stanislav. First, we know this player well and Stanislav knows us well. Secondly, Valery Konstantinovich (clubís head coach - translator) wanted to see this player on his roster. Third, Stanislavís family lives here and his wife wished to be closer to her home town and to live at home. The last word was behind the player, and everything depended on him and his willingness to play here. The wish to play in Magnitogorsk seems to have won and in the agreement with Omsk we traded our second round selection in the 2009 draft. He has already joined our squad and he is good physical shape.

08/11/2008 Stanislav Chistov (Boston Bruins): It would have been more right if King told me to my face

Back seven years ago Stanislav Chistov (Boston Bruins) was the main hope of the young Russian national team, scoring and assisting on the same level with Ilya Kovalchuk (Atlanta Thrashers), who today is one of the leading NHL players. Chistov, however, after his release from Ufa last season fell out of sight for half a year. Sportland correspondent spoke to Chistov and found out what he has done during this time. (Sportsland.ru interview by Maxim Nesterov, translated by Eugene Belashchenko) READ MORE

Talent Analysis:
Let me first start by saying that Chistov is not a small guy. Though European hockey is not known for itís physical size, size wise he looked about average in the Super League. He was never really that small, but has grown about an inch and put on about 20 pounds over the past season. Talent wise he was probably the most talented player drafted in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. Stanislav has amazing speed and can accelerate in just a couple of strides. He has also become very sturdy as he put on more weight and while a season ago he often ended up like Tkachenko
Back In Russia:
Stanislav Chistov started his career in Chelyabinsk system, playing for Traktor Chelyabinsk. 1996-98: While touring North America in 1996 with his junior team, he decided to stay back and play in North America. His destination was the Black Stars of San Francisco. He spent two years in North America playing in a Junior League and going to an American high school. 1998-99: In 1998 he returned back to Russia and rejoined the Chelyabinsk system. After playing only a single game for Traktor 2 of the First League, Stanislav signed a five-year contract with Avangard Omsk. He did not get too much playing time with Avangardís main team, cracking the lineup for only three games, spending the rest of the season with the teamís First League affiliate Avangard VDV where he amassed 16 points (12+4) in just 18 games during the 99-00 season. 2000-01: During the 00-01 season, Stanislav saw increasing ice time with Avangard and rewarded his team with better production, scoring 12 points (8+4) in the 24 games he played in the regular season. However, despite his increase in production during the regular season, Stanislav was a non factor in the playoffs, producing no points in the six playoff games. Stanislav did not get any ice time and when he did, he was shut down by the other teamís large and physical defensive play. 2001-02: The 2001 off season has been full of highs and lows for Stanislav. In June he was drafted 5th overall by the Anaheim Mighty Ducks and was touted as the next Paul Kariya. Prior to the draft he suffered a leg injury. According to Stanislav in an interview he recently gave to the Soviet Sport newspaper, allegedly, one of the key conditions he agreed to in order to be drafted by the Mighty Ducks was that he would rehabilitate his injury in the United States. He did so and allegedly told his agent to inform Avangard Omsk of his decision. Avangard Omskís management alleges it heard nothing from Stanislavís agent and threatened to suspend him. After a brief conversation with teamís president, Anatoliy Bardin, he let the United States and returned to Omsk. There he was promptly taken into custody by the local military forces and spent the next few weeks playing with Avangardís farm team, Avangard 2, which is affiliated with the local Russian Airborne Forces. After a few weeks, Stanislav was allowed to return to the main team, but he had a lot of trouble making up the time he lost in the preseason. Stanislav experienced difficulties adjusting to new linemates and received little ice time. In late October, these problems were all eclipsed by the incident that occurred in Moscow. Stanislav, along with Tampa Bayís prospect Alexander Svitov and top 2002 draft prospect Kiril Koltsov, were escorted from the teamís hotel in Moscow to the local military base with alleged intentions of forcing them to play for HC CSKA. The plan failed but the Svitov and Chistov lost the entire season, being in the army, but having their rights belong to Avangard.

International Competition:

2001 U20 WJC:
Avangard Omsk player displayed his talent in full color. After the not so convincing play in the first match against Switzerland on the line with Chernov and Yakubov. Stanislav was moved to a Yaroslavl line with Nepriayev and Vorobiev and Chistov returned to form. He scored twice against Belarus, a pretty goal against the Swedes, and two goals in the last match against the Slovaks. Despite his far from large measurements, Chistov, on the count of his great technique regularly broke through the defense of his opponents. Stanislav is only 17, and if he does not stay the same height, then at the next yearís WJC he will be able to lead the Russian Junior squad. 2002 U20 WJC: Stanislav Chistov showed no rust from the ordeal he endured since being forcefully drafted into the army. Stanislav was Russiaís most skilled forward. He showed off he renowned ability to set up line mates as well as his ability to score. His shot, though not as hard as Volchenkovís, was extremely accurate. Chistov showed great mobility with speed and excellent puckhandling. His hockey sense is very mature for a player his age. Stanislav sees the ice well and set up his line mates on numerous scoring chances. The only negative aspect of his game that arose from the WJC was his hesitation to play physical hockey. According to observers from the tournament, he did not fight for the puck in the corners or along the boards. While he did have a sizable force on his line for that in Alexander Svitov, a concern still exists regarding his ability to play well a physical environment.
NHL Outlook:
Stanislav Chistov is ranked 3rd by the Central Scouting Bureau amongst the European Players and is expected to be one of the first five picks in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. Over the past few years he displayed increased maturity and an immense array of offensive skills. Anaheim Mighty Ducks took Stanislav Chistov fifth overall and so far they may have gotten one of the best players in the draft. If he can convert his scoring touch to a Kariya career, he would be well worth a number five pick. The only knock on him was that he was small, and that is no longer the case with him weighing around 190 pounds. Stanislav did lose a year, and that will cost him some in his development. However, looking at the bright side he did practice and work out and also let his knee heal. He also performed very well at the 2002 U20 WJC. Stanislav came over to North America during the summer of 2002 and will not likely have any problems adjusting to his new surroundings. Stanislav has been a bit rusty in the training camp, but the spot in Anaheimís lineup is his to lose.
