“Kirill (Kabanov) did a tremendous job visiting blood donor clinics, several schools, Veterans at the American Legions, attending youth clubs at church’s and he even took the time to read to seniors,” Marcel Patenaude [Executive Vice President of the QMJHL] said. “He did a great job making sure that people around Lewiston knew about the team.”
"He's a very talented player and a real likeable young man," said Flynn. "When the trade opportunity with Lewiston came up, it was something we felt made sense. We were looking to restock the cupboards (to build for the future). We got four draft picks and a young player in the deal.
"Lewiston received a very talented NHL drafted player. He'll give them help this season and next season. We hope the players we acquire with the draft picks will help us in the following seasons."
