Panthers sign promising Russian winger

Nottingham Panthers have signed Russian winger Alexander Mokshantsev.

The 22-year-old spent last season in the KHL and the VHL in Russia with Lada Togliatti and Dizel Penza. He is a product of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl junior system and has represented Russia from U16 to U20 level.

Panthers’ boss Corey Neilson said: “He’s a super-skilled, super-fast young Russian.

“He’s excited about the opportunity before him. He’s young but he was in the KHL last year and played in a very defensive league in the VHL.

“Lots of positives – we’re excited to have him.”
