Grachev gave an exclusive interview to
Russian Hockey Fans
Hello Evgeny. Recently the Russian Hockey Federation site has published news that the Rangers ruled you out of the WJC. Has anyone from the club talked to you about this decision? Has the RHF approached you either?
I've seen this information on the internet and I've asked my agent to learn if they really weren't releasing me. And the New York Rangers confirmed that they wouldn't release me. And no one from the RHF tried to get in touch with me.
Do you think that you are progressing playing in the AHL?
Yes, I do think that I am progressing in this league. The level is good and it's hard to play here.
Wouldn't it better for you to get back in the KHL, where you would get good time on ice in the Europe's best league?
Well, no one would give me ice time in the KHL.
