Bobrovsky: Choosing CBJ Over KHL Wasn't Easy

While other big-name Russian players haven’t switched to the KHL just yet after Ilya Kovalchuk’s surprising exodus, plenty admit that it made an impact.

Sergei Bobrovsky admitted to Sportsnet on Tuesday that he didn’t easily choose the Columbus Blue Jackets over his hometown league.

“It was a very tough decision,” Bobrovsky said. “The decision that I made was what I think was right for my career moving forward.

“I just focus on myself, on my career, what will be the best way to grow up and to develop myself.”

The 24-year-old goalie said that Kovalchuk’s departure was both surprising and unsurprising, calling St. Petersburg ”one of the best, (most) beautiful cities in the world” and a great place to play hockey.

“Bob” believes that the KHL possesses the assets and ability to someday become the NHL’s equal, but luckily for the Blue Jackets, it’s clear he decided it was best to stay in North America. For now, anyway.
