Does Kabanov make the team this season?



Interesting tidbit from Botta's latest;

 

Invaluable Islanders development coach Eric Cairns has taken Kabanov under his enormous wing. After spending some time with Emerson Etem in Los Angeles, Kabanov is now living with the former Islanders defenseman. “Right near the beach,” said the 17-year-old Russian. “It’s very nice. Eric Cairns is a lot older than me, but he’s become one of my closest friends.”

HMMMM!!!

 

I wonder if there is more to this. I'm not up on all this kids personal issues but it is interesting that he is being taken in by Cairns. Not so much as "under the wing" but perhaps "under the watchfull eye" as well. Given that this kid is a very valuable assett taken in the third I wonder if the organization decides to reduce their risk and keep em up here?

 

If that's the case perhaps he cuts his teeth on the third line this season?
