Alexander Romanov has officially signed his 3 year ELC. He is a 20 year old left handed defenceman from Russia. He was drafted 38th overall in 2018 by the Montreal Canadiens. This year he was playing with CSKA Moscow.
The 5’11 player is a smooth skating offensive defenceman. He isn’t a defensive liability and enjoys physical play. He has a good chance of making the team out of camp and should be able to have a positive impact on the team immediately. The Canadiens have been looking for a left handed dman to join Shea Weber on the top pairing for a while and he has all the tools to excel in that role. Romanov could be a dark horse candidate for the Calder in 2020-21.
The window for signing KHL free agents begins on May 1st every season because deals in the KHL expire at the end of April. He becomes the third russian signing by the Habs, they have already signed V.Demchenko and A.Khisamutdinov. Fans should be excited to see him in action.
