Koshechkin triumphant in his Bolt Prospects swan song...

KHL Gagarin Cup Final

Magnitogorsk Wings the Gagarin Cup 4-3
Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 36/37, 1.00 GAA, .973 sv%
Playoff totals: 19 GP, 14-5-0, 3 SO, 1.57 GAA, .948 sv%

Ex-Florida Everblades defenseman Chris Lee had 1 goal and 1 assist to help lead Magnitogorsk to a 3-1 Game Seven victory over CSKA in the Gagarin Cup Final. The Cup is Magnitka's second in the past three seasons and first under coach Ilya Vorobyov, who took over from ex-NHL coach Mike Keenan at mid season. Ex-Syracuse Crunch forward Geoff Platt had a helper in defeat for CSKA.

For Bolt Prospects, it's a bitter sweet moment. The Lightning organization gently alerted us at mid-season that the 33 year old Koshechkin is obviously no longer considered a real "prospect" by the organization. However, we made the editorial decision to continue coverage of Koshechkin through the end of the season, which he rewarded with a championship performance. In 19 playoff games, Koshechkin amassed an impressive 14-5-0 record with 3 shutouts, a 1.57 GAA, and a .948 sv%, which even bested his championship-winning playoff performance in the 2013-2014 campaign. Bolt Prospects salutes Koshechkin's career and congratulates him on yet another Gagarin Cup winning season.
