Alexander Svitov: Making Noise at 2002 WJC

by Brandon LeBourveau
on
Everything was going well for Alexander Svitov, a 6-3 199 lbs. center from Russia, as the feisty forward was selected 3rd Overall in 2001 by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Desperate for a center that could eventually shut down the other team’s top line each and every night, the Lightning and GM Rick Dudley were quick to almost guarantee Svitov a roster spot shortly after being drafted. However, the high spirits centered on the young Russian on that day, June 23rd 2001, now seemed to have dwindled at the very least.

It all started when the Tampa Bay Lightning and Alexander Svitov thought they were doing the right thing. The two agreed on a three year, entry-level contract before the deadline to sign European players passed. However, afraid that Svitov’s former team in Russia, Avangard Omsk, would get extremely upset with the player’s decision and possibly take some sort of action, the two sides figured it was best to wait a short while before announcing the deal. Out of the blue, Omsk announced that Svitov could not jump ship to the NHL and must serve time in the military. At first the Tampa Bay Lightning didn’t worry too much about Omsk’s decision, since they already had Svitov under contract. What they didn’t know, and they found this out eventually, was that Svitov was inducted into the Russian military back in December 2000. Unfortunately for both parties, Tampa Bay fans won’t be seeing Svitov in the NHL until December 2002 as he needs to serve his two year military obligation.

Czech team really wanted to win this game and they played well. It was a physical game with a
lot of skating on both sides. The first one to score was Ales Hemsky. He was given an accurate
pass by Jiri Hudler. Czech team had the goal not to play against Canada and after the tying goal by Hedlund Czechs
tried extremely hard. In the final power play Czechs failed to score and Jamtin had no problems
to score in the open net. Even though Czechs were last in the Group A they will face Finland in
