Whatever happened to....Alexander Pechurskiy?


We all remember three and half weeks ago when Alexander Pechurskiy was thrust into the scene in a game against Vancouver.  The 19 year old acquitted himself very well, making 12 saves on 13 shots and stopping an embarassing game from getting any worse.

So how's the youngster (who only got to North America in December with the Russian WJC team) doing back at the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League?

Perhaps running off of adreline from his big league experience, Pechurskiy gave up 2, 0, 3, 0 and 2 goals against in his first five games back in junior.  His record would only be 3-2 over that stretch, but just from the numbers it looked like he played well, posted some strong save percentages.  His last game though, AP gave up three goals on eight shots in the games first 12 minutes and got a hook.

Pechurskiy is getting a lot of playing time for the Americans, who are in first place in the Western Conference.  Here's his stat line:
