As North American hockey fans eagerly await the start of NHL training camps, the KHL preseason is well underway. 

Ak Bars Kazan defenseman Yevgeni Medvedev put on a show with this tremendous breakaway effort on 20-year-old Vasily Demchenko of Traktor Chelyabinsk.

The 31-year-old has been with the KHL club since 2008, and recently won a gold medal with Russia at the 2014 IIHF World Championships after representing his home nation at the Winter Games in Sochi.
