Like most Europeans players not selected in the early rounds of the NHL draft, goaltender Kirill Ustimenko, did not travel to Chicago, USA, to attend this year's event. 

The Philadelphia Flyers third-round pick had to wait almost a month to get his hat and jersey from the team that selected him 80th overall. Ustimenko who was unable to attend the Flyers Development Camp, did not expect to be waiting this long before getting his official gear.  

His agent Dan Milstein, tweeted this picture of the Belarus native who's shown alongside his parents and siblings, proudly waring his Flyers colours. 

Ustimenko, 18, played 27 games this past season with MHK Dynamo St. Petersburg, posting a .938 save percentage and a 1.74 GAA.
