I too was wondering:
His Visa was not complete, so he could not cross from the US into Canada, however, this has now been resolved.
To quote the rather good: Andrew Eide
Seattle got some good news this week as Alex Delnov's visa issue has been settled. Delnov missed the two games last week in Prince George as the Canadian government had not issued his visa yet. The T-Birds were still waiting at the beginning of this week to see if the Russian could get into Canada. We contacted the Canadian Consulate in Seattle on Monday and were orginally told that Delnov 'had everything he needed from the Canadian government' to play in Canada and did not know why he could not get into the country. Later in the day they changed the story a bit saying that 'the visa was in the mail'. In the end the confusion was resolved and Delnov will be allowed into Canada and will be in the lineup against Kamloops.
