|| Alexander Semin (Washington Capitals): I warned....I would be late...|
Washington’s young forward Alexander Semin (Washington Capitals)
, who had been scheduled to play for Russia at the World Championships, has recently been excluded from the national team by head coach Vyacheslav Bykov for failing to arrive at training camp on time. While the management of the national team has commented on Semin’s exclusion from the team multiple times, citing the importance of discipline, this is Semin’s first account of his side of the story and the miscommunication that occurred between him and selectional coach Sergei Nemchinov.

GAME NOTES: Konstantin Barulin (St. Louis Blues)
put on a shaky showing for the national team, allowing all three goals against Austria. At the same time, Alexander Eremenko
was quite solid and will likely backup Vasily Koshechkin (Tampa Bay Lightning)
at the World Championships. Alexander Frolov (Los Angeles Kings)
and Alexander Ovechkin (Washington Capitals)
skated on the second line with Alexei Kaigorodov (Phoenix Coyotes)
at center. Frolov scored two goals, while Ovechkin still looked a bit out of place. Interestingly, Kiril Koltsov (Vancouver Canucks)
skated with Andrei Markov (Montreal Canadiens)
on the second defensive pairing, which will hopefully give the young defenseman some additional experience prior to making another attempt at the NHL this summer.
||Team Russia boosted by NHL young guns|
Team Russia coaching staff have released three more players – goalie Semen Varlamov (Washington Capitals)
and forwards Albert Leschev
and Alexei Simakov
. Leschev has struggled to find chemistry with his HC Khimik linemate Mozyakin and Lokomotiv forward Evgeny Artyukhin at the EuroTour finals. Concequently, both forwards were released with Mozyakin likely moving to a line with NHL forwards. In regards to Varlamov, he was released in favor of more experienced goalies Vasily Koshechkin (Tampa Bay Lightning)
and Alexei Eremenko.
||Goalie Semen Varlamov (Washington Capitals) and two others cut from the Russian roster|
||More Russians released from training camp|
||Team Russia’s infirmary filling up |
Vyacheslav Bykov announced that Pavel Valentenko and Timofei Shishkanov (St. Louis Blues)
left the national team due to various injuries. Additionally Dmitry Bykov and Vladimir Antipov (Toronto Maple Leafs)
left the squad for the seam reasons. Another young talented player Denis Kulyash (Nashville Predators)
suffered a foot injury during practice, but is expected to make full a recovery in time for the World Championships.
