B’s Hope Chistov’s A Fixer-Upper

from the Worchester Telegram:
All the usual indicators said it was small potatoes, a minor deal hardly worth getting excited about, when the Bruins acquired left wing Stanislav Chistov from the Anaheim Ducks this past week for a third-round draft pick. But the 23-year-old Chistov (pronounced CHEESE-toff) is anything but an ordinary prospect. He could be a sleeper of Rip Van Winklian proportions. For one thing, Chistov’s past in Russia reads like a spy novel. For another, he’s rocket power on skates, a real burner, and unless there’s something terribly wrong with him that the Coyotes aren’t disclosing — aside from his questionable taste in uniform numbers — Chistov could be a real find for the suddenly revitalized Bruins.
