The hype continues to build regarding Montreal Canadiens' defensive prospect Alexander Romanov.
The youngster put together another incredible performance at the World Juniors and ended up being named one of the top defenders.
Aside from his leadership, one of the standouts from his World Junior performance were his massive big hits.
While speaking with KHL report Igor Eronko recently, Romanov had praise for a fellow big hitter, Shea Weber.
Eronko said that Romanov is very fond of Weber and looks at him like one of his hockey heroes.
We can't wait to see this kid in a Canadiens' uniform!
Talked to Alexander Romanov today. He praises Shea Weber a lot, he's fond of him. And he goes by his hero: nobody counted a number of hits at the #WorldJuniors, but Romanov had around 40 and was well trashtalked because of that especially against Canada #GoHabsGo
