Aliaksei Protas is making the most of his August loan to the KHL.
The Capitals’ 2019 third-round pick has scored four goals in his first 14 games with Dinamo Minsk and is among the top scorers in the KHL amongst under 20-year-old players.
The 6’6”, 210-pound center is coming off a 2019-20 season that saw him tally 80 points (31g, 49a) in 58 junior hockey games with the Prince Albert Raiders (WHL). While he’s not producing nearly as prolifically as before, his game has translated to a men’s league that features a bigger rink and some of the most talented players outside the NHL.
