Evgeni Dadonov: I'm going to attend the development camp in Florida

2009 Continental Hockey League (KHL)

Traktor Chelyabinsk’s forward Evgeni Dadonov (Florida Panthers) shared impressions about his debut with the Russian National team.

“It was the match of Traktor’s farm club against Mechel – 2. Our administrator Deniss Denisov phoned me and said that I was called to the national team and thus it was necessary to prepare the documents. At first I thought as a joke, but then I understood that it was for real. Everything run very good. The atmosphere was good [for work]. I built good relationships, with all the guys, even if before I was familiar with Maxim Goncharov (Phoenix Coyotes) [from CSKA Moscow] only.

My debut was great, I managed to score fast. I was happy! What else to say? At first I didn’t understand that I scored. I realized that later, and when I was on the bench Bykov came to me and congratulated for my first goal. It was a pleasant moment.

Bykov and Zakharkin communicate a lot with players, they often give advice to the young players. Sometimes rudely, sometimes kindly, they gave exhaustive information about the neutral zone game. And the trainings was a lot similar to the ones we had with the national junior team, just at higher level.

If we were better than Mozyakin and Radulov, it's clear that we would be at the national team's disposal. For now they are better, and always, only the strongest go.

This summer I am going to attend a training camp in North America. Florida will host a development camp, in which it will be possible to meet professionals who give good advice to improve any single part of the game”
