Antropov May Move To Center

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

Nik Antropov could go from a nobody to No. 1 centre in less than a year.

The 6-foot-6 Kazakh is aware of the Maple Leafs’ proposed training camp experiment, and though he’s not practising ceremonial faceoffs while Mats Sundin is still in the mix, Antropov won’t turn down the chance to be the first line’s engine.

“It would take a while to get used to playing there again,” Antropov said yesterday. “I heard from my friends last week that (general manager Cliff Fletcher and coach Ron Wilson) were talking about me at centre. We’ll see. A lot can happen in camp with the forward lines.”
