looks like Dyatlov (Russian) is getting all the starts with the Guard, wtf? You have 4 goalies, spread it around. Yachnyk had a good 1 game too, reward the kid. Pisarenko hasn't touched the ice yet...(though he's the youngest)
for defense, Skripets is the only Ukie getting any ice time
Andreykiv (Lviv) seems to have been converted to forward, getting ice time but no points...1 shot in 10 games...ugh...
lyalka, zhakarov, and cherdak are the only ones getting ice time and all games at forward. cherdaks not doing anything, zharkov/lyalka aren't impressing but doing okay...
5 ukrainians on all of donetsk? eh, i guess it's something...
In the championship of Ukraine established junior league. At the start of the championship YUHL, which can act only players born in 1994-1997, will take five teams. On this channel Xsport reported in the press - service of the Hockey Federation of Ukraine.
The championship will take part YUHL three teams from Kharkov (Dynamo, SDYUSSHOR-1, SDYUSSHOR-2) and two from Kyiv (Sokil, Icicle).
Championship Cycle System will consist of two stages: the first - the regular championship rounds will be held on the system single-circuit tournaments (five stages, each of which will play four teams), and the second stage - the Final Four (semi-finals: 1 - 4, 2 - 3 ).
YUHL first round of the championship will be held October 24-26 in Kharkov (Dynamo sports school, sports school-1-2 SDYUSSHOR, Icicle).
Add that each team - participant of the championship should have in her application form at least 15 players of Ukrainian citizens, including 2 goalies.
Surprised that Donetsk doesn't have a team in this, I'm sure Donbass-98 could have played, plus they have other kids in their Academy school they run now
just checked, they have almost 500 kids playing at their school, but outside of the 98 group, they only do 2001s-2008s
Pretty healthy number, but that just shows, that Donbass will really show of their own kids on international stage starting from 17-18 season at earliest.
Also noticed that 98 born roster isn't playing in Moscow championship anymore this season, but in "Moscow region" group. Shame, won't be able to compare their progress during the offseason, as they will be facing completely different teams.
Are there any Ukrainian players with pro potential, whether it be AHL or NHL? Is there any chance NHL teams take late flyers on players with glimpses of potential to remove them and their families from the current situation? I was just curious, but feel that is too optimistic of a hope.
