Frattin started out well with Toronto. He and Nazim Kadri were on the same line and tearing it up. Then he blew a knee and never fully recovered.Sent down to the Marlies. He was traded to the Kings and played like 40 games in their 13-14 championship season before he re-injured the knee. Was never the same after. He was one of my favorite players. Without a doubt the best college player in the country his senior year. He had to much baggage to win the Hobey that year.

Best of luck to Frattin. Playing in China he has a chance to be an ambassador for the game.  Between the NHL and the local gov't there are a lot of resources being pumped in to hockey in China.

I still remember his classy and non-chalant celebrations. The sign of a true goal scorer.

There is a KHL team in Beijing, Kunlun Red Star.

The CWHL (Canadian Women's Hockey League) is also going to have a team in China

The NHL is making a push to be at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, but 2018 in Korea is a no go.

As pointed out Frattin's team is based in China.  There are other KHL teams not based in Russia; Genoway's team last year, Jokerit, is based in Finland.  You may have seen when he did this:

Does anyone know if there are any former players in Sweden? I'll be there in late Sept and am thinking of trying to catch a game.

I did not know that. Color me red for embarrassed. My apologies.

Interesting tidbit on Kunlun Red Star...the team's head coach is none other than Mike Keenan.
