||Andrei Taratukhin (Calgary Flames) and Denis Kulyash (Nashville Predators) joining Team Russia|
Andrei Taratukhin (Calgary Flames)
and Denis Kulyash (Nashville Predators)
will be making their Olympic debuts afterall. Taratukhin has already been called up to replace the injured Los Angeles Kings forward Alexander Frolov
, who suffered a shoulder injury in the game against Kazakhstan. Denis Kulyash has not yet officially been called up from the reserves, but will likely replace Vitaly Vishnevski
, who reportedly broke two ribs in the same contest. Still, the rib diagnosis has not yet been confirmed, so Kulyash’s debut on the national team is not yet assured. Vishnevski’s loss will be dear for Russia, as he brings a physical element to the blue line that Russian defensive corps often lack.
