when does avangard open their season?

...or have they already?

I'm just curious because I'm wondering if/when Tverdovsky will play his first game to forfeit his chances of coming back into the NHL this season. Thanks!

His 9 points, as posted by Choquette, place him in first position amoung defensemen scorers in Russian Super League.

He is ranked second of the RSL players for the post game Three Stars nominees given by Sport Express with 4 first stars and 2 second star.

Russian fans are crazy about him. We may understand them. The best 100 russian hockey players, or so, are playing in NHL or in AHL. So, it is a gift for them to have one guy back in their country when he is not yet a declining player as were some who left NHL for RSL last years like Kovalenko or Tsyplakov or Kvartalnov.

Tverdovski is playing for Omsk Avangard, which currently ranks 12th (of 16 teams) in RSL but only 6 points behind the third place. Omsk team belongs to Abramovich, the russian billionnaire who is said for having tried recently to buy Vancouver Canucks.

Actually it doesn't belong to him. He's just the main sponsor. Whatever it means....
