Filatov Can’t Get Hitchcock Off His Mind

from Tom Reed of the Columbus Dispatch, 

Blue Jackets prospect Nikita Filatov regrets some of the comments he made after leaving the club a month ago, while saying that others were taken out of context.

But the 19-year-old winger, who went home to Russia unhappy after being unable to earn substantial ice time under coach Ken Hitchcock, stands by one of his primary reasons for departing.

“I got my own opinion about Hitch and about what I think he thinks of me,” Filatov wrote in an e-mail to The Dispatch. “I am not going to let everybody know about it. I think it’s pretty clear that he didn’t give (me) a chance and opportunity to prove that I can play.”
