The kid's dad is an extremely rich Chinese movie producer and actor. He played split season with my son a few games and would show up to the rink in a Bentley. I believe that his dad could be an investor or the owner of the team. I remember seeing a video made about him and his youth team and they were saying he was going to be the first Chinese born player to play in the NHL. I didn't see it or him having the ability to play in the KHL but I suppose that things could change.


Rudi's rocking the K. 9 GP, 0 pts 2 shots total, 2 hits total, 3 min per game.


Fake made up stats. Sorry your kid didn't make the varsity this year again. Oh well there is always senior year.


"Fake made up stats"!! ROFLMAO. It's called Google, try searching before you reply out of your ass. Here's a link to KHL player page--now he's played 10 games, still got the 0-fer.

http://en.khl.ru/players/25198/


Look if your kid was playing you would be pumped he made so STFU alright. He made it and he is playing. He has zero points but it's still early. It is a great accomplishment that he made it to the KHL and won the BIOSTEEL endorsement. Again if it was your kid you would be holding court at dunkin donuts every Monday recapping the weeks games with your buddies. He's a rookie give him time and do be a player hater be a motivator.

So I guess they're not "fake made up stats" eh?? Whoever you are you need to check yourself into a hospital because you are clearly delusional. Kid's position on team was bought, same as all the other 3 Chinese kids on the team, who in total have no points!! Same with the BIOSTEEL "endorsement". What a F---ing joke. If I ever bought my kid a position on a team I'd shut my mouth about it. "Recapping the week's games with my buddies"?? "Oh, he looked so good on the bench, drank a LOT of water. He really passed that towel." Oh yeah, I'd be boasting about that. LOFL.

What a joke, the kid has never made anything, every time things hasn't work out, his parents moved him to another situation which they paid for. Can't imagine what they did to get this done. I hope the Chinese fans are enjoying the entertainment factor over there.

Maybe if you send him some fan mail he will get your kid a tryout for their farm team.

It is the right kid, but then again, he is on the ice for such a small amount of time, it would be easy to get it confused. Keep paying for those skills, I suspect that entitles him to play in the KHL, lord knows he never earned it playing for any team

Doesn't matter who the picture was of--one Chinese hockey player is the same as the other. Only 1 legit Chinese player on the team and its not Rudi Ying. 23 yo Zach Yuen, Chinese-Canadian, actually has a hockey resume, unlike Ying, who just plays one in his daddy's dreams.

Wow - I feel horrible for you. You obviously are not that bright. The video is not Rudi Ying it is Xia Tianxiang another player of Asian descent. Ying didn't even play that game. Please seek an appointment with a neurologist. You may have experienced severe head trauma as a child. Perhaps you ate a lot of lead paint chips as a kid?

Please don't post here unless you know what you are talking about.

Stereotype Chinese players that are on Beijing team that have zeros across stat line as being terrible players and having positions on team purely for the sake of publicity? Not stereotyping if it's true.

Stop lying your ass off Jethro. There aint no 17 year old playing in the KHL and if there was one good enough at that age, he would be a first round draft choice in the NHL next June and playing there.


Signed at 17. Sorry buddy your wrong you don't know he probably schooled your little Johnny in U18 when he played for VJW.


So full of ****. Probably thinks KHL stands for Kanadian Hockey League.


Believe it or not, the guy's right. A Chinese team in the KHL just signed a 17 year Chinese kid who played for the VJW. Pure publicity stunt. The kid's terrible--but great for a Chinese national. Couldn't make Phillips Exeter varsity last year so left and played VJW U-18. His dad probably owns the team.


Not terrible. Made varsity but sought out other opportunities. Not sure if his dad has an ownership stake but he is a famous Producer/Director in China. So I guess we don't have to worry about him if this hockey thing doesn't pan out.

Re: QMJHL News

Correct. He was on varsity both years, played his junior year but senior year went to VJW. He's been working with Gary Roberts as well as RHA Academy. I bet he puts up some decent numbers in his first season, let's see!

Re: QMJHL News

Very familiar with the Rudy Ying situation, the kid played no better than 3-4 line at Exeter, kid has some skill, but had no interest in mixing it up on the ice, was mostly a spectator while he played. The family is loaded! Dad is some kind of famous talk show host on Chinese tv. Rudy's spot on that KHL team in China has been bought and paid for by the father, that's what they've done during the kids whole life.

As was stated earlier he has been working with Gary Roberts and RHA academy all summer. He's only 18 and he can still improve. He's in the KHL NOW let's see what happens and give him a chance.

How the **** do YOU know? Watch a lot of KHL do you?

I swear, the "rich people suck" mentality here is ridiculous. If the team finds it worthwhile economically both for the publicity it could create in a nation with 1.4 billion people, and anything the dad may (or may not) be doing to grease the wheel, how are you qualified to say he doesn't belong?

so what your saying is, if a parent writes the check to the right skating clinics, they deserve to pass everyone else to have a spot on a KHL team, even though the kid could barely play prep?? Keep writing those checks Mrs. Ying, your kid will learn a lot from that.

No, what we're saying is, a team based in CHINA gave him a spot. What their reasons are, are their reasons, and you have no clue what they are.

Tell us, how many Kunlun Red Star games did you see last season?

The Chinese Ice Hockey Association also saw fit to have him be the Captain of their U18 team at the World Juniors, too.

Who they decide to have him work with is their business. Imagine that, an 18 year old trying to develop his game.

Personally, I'd rather have my kid play in the Q, then play college at one of the top Canadian universities (McGill, U of Toronto) than have him play for most of the Hockey East schools, from an educational perspective. Canadian college hockey rosters have numerous ex-CHL players.



yes, they do, congrats on your 21-year old freshman


As opposed to the 21 year old frosh on a US College roster?

Another kid led astray by stupid parents and "advisers".


Who's to say he was "led astray"?? The kid is a late '99 and probably hadn't gotten much college attention yet, if any, and was seeing tiny 00s and 01s getting commits. He wasn't drafted in the USHL (or even the Q) and he got an opportunity out of the blue. If the team's GM hadn't turned over, he'd probably be happy as a clam in the Q and would probably finally get some recognition. As it is, he may actually get MORE attention from colleges now than he would have because they've at least heard his name. Losing one year of eligibility may turn out to have been a small price to pay.

If a kid isn't getting NCAA attention from schools he'd like to attend, why not go to the Q? Q teams offer educational packages that can be used anywhere. True, they wouldn't cover the whole price of college, but they'd help and a player who hasn't gotten much attention from college hockey wouldn't be getting much of a package either if he eventually does get an offer.

Comment was made by a guy who wasn't contacted by any advisors. So, naturally, anyone that has one is an idiot.

So many people on these boards act like what is happening to someone else's kid is somehow negatively impacting them.
