Svitov, Chistov and Kiril Koltsov forcefully drafted into the Army

by Eugene Belashchenko
on

On Thursday, October 25, 2001 in the afternoon the Moscow Police visited the hotel where Avangard Omsk was staying after their Wed. game with CSKA Moscow. They took Alexander Svitov, Stanislav Chistov and Kiril Koltsov under their escort and took them to the local military base of the Moscow garrison. It appears that the Moscow Military garison is the body drafting the players into the army. The players are already part of Avangard, which counts as service in the Airborne Forces (VDV), but Moscow’s military priorities superceed that of Omsk.

A likely version that has been suggested is that CSKA Moscow is not doing well and Vladimir Krutov is looking for additional reinforcements. If the players are drafted into the Moscow garison they could play for CSKA to serve their time in the army. Another version is that this could be a move directed at Avangard president Bardin from the political system. There will be an Avangard Omsk press conference on Friday regarding the Thursday incident.

Training Camp Profile with Stephen Weiss

by HF Staff
on

We hope you will enjoy the following look at an NHL training camp as seen through the eyes of rookie centerman Stephen Weiss. Weiss, 18, a native of Toronto, Ontario, played in 62 games last season with the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) scoring 40 goals and 47 assists (87 points). He was the Panthers’ first selection and fourth overall in this year’s entry draft held at National Car Rental Center.

Week One / Part One:

I’d like to start out by saying hello to my family and friends that I know are going to be reading this on the Panthers’ website. I’m doing great here in Hull and looking forward to rookie training camp. I’m rooming with Niklas Hagman. He was drafted in ’99 with the Panthers and played in Finland last year. He speaks English well so there’s no problem communicating. He’s a good guy and all the other guys seem like good guys too.

How was your off-season?

I had a good summer. I had a chance to train hard. We had the rookie camp in Thunder Bay with the Panthers. That went real well. I got to meet some of the guys and that was a neat experience. The summers start to fly by once you get older. It was good to get some training in and put on some weight, which was good for me. And it was nice to spend time with my family.

How do you feel physically coming into this camp? What’s your mindset?

I feel real good right now. I put on a lot of weight, feel strong, and I’m looking forward to getting camp started. Even just last year compared to where I am now it’s totally different. I was just 170 Read more»

Rangers News and Notes: Anders Myrvold

by Evan Andriopoulos
on

Anders Myrvold, signed as a free agent in September out of Norway spent last season taking the bus between Springfield and Nassau on Long Island with the Islanders. Myrvold a 6-1 200 smooth skating defender spurned offers from the Montreal Canadiens and New York Islanders as well as the St.Louis Blues in order to sign with the Rangers and have a chance at playing in Madison Square Garden with the Rangers.

Myrvold`s stay with the big club lasted exactly three days and was re-assigned to the group going to Hartford (AHL). Upon arrival and impressing the Rangers Myrvold signed a 25 game tryout contract and has not seen much playing time as he has a nagging shoulder injury. Myrvold`s one note of the AHL season came in a game against Bridgeport assisting on Jeff Toms goal before nearly 11000 at the Civic Center in Hartford.

The Norwegian defender hopes to earn another contract and a shot at the NHL and his play during rehabilitation has been impressive.

Originally drafted by Quebec with their 6th choice (127th overall) in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft Myrvold played little with Quebec/Colorado and then went onto Boston along with Landon Wilson, afterward back to Europe(AIK-Sweden) and back again to North America with the Islanders/Springfield. Myrvold has already shown an interest at playing for Norway in the World B Championships, a stint that can only help.

In final, with the Rangers defense in such disarray it is only time before the Lørenskog boy get`s a shot at a shift on MSG ice…

Flyer’s Young Guns Report Cards

Report Card on Philadelphia Flyer’s Youth

The Philadelphia Flyer’s season has not started off with a bang thus far. Jiri Dopita and Pavel Brendl were both lost in the opening game and the lines since have been mixed up. Bill Barber said the team has looked the best against the Panthers. The Flyers have crushed Florida two times. In both the victories there was some questionable play from the Panthers. Jiri Dopita was hit low by defenseman Dan Boyle. In the rematch with Florida, Paul Laus jumped Ruslan Fedtenko. Jason Weimer jumped blue liner Eric Weinrich in the closing seconds of the contest. The overall feeling around the team is of an upbeat nature.

Bill Barber and Bob Clarke are not concerned over the slow start, because the scoring has picked up and the injured players will return shortly. There is just too much talent on this roster to keep them down for long. Philadelphia will only get better the longer the team plays together and cuts down on costly turnovers. The shining spot on the team is the play of the youth. The youngsters have carried the team thus far with Mark Recchi and Keith Primeau struggling. Here is a report on the young players lacing them up for the orange and black.

Justin Williams – Justin steamed rolled into the first game with 2 goals and an assist. He worked very well with Gagne and Roenick on a line. In the first 3 games this was the best line the Flyers had on a nightly basis. Williams added some much-needed weight to battle in the corners and to take a beating from physical Read more»
