03/18/2008 Quarterfinals - Lokomotiv vs. SKA 2:1 (series 3:1) Yashin leads Loko forward

Super League -  HC Lokomotiv defeated HC SKA in four games to be the third team to enter the semifinals, leaving HC Dynamo vs. HC Metallurg Mg. as the last remaining unresolved contest. Alexei Yashin was key in victory, scoring the first goal by collecting a loose puck in front of the net, and then assisting Czech forward Irgl on the game winner. Semen Varlamov (Washington Capitals) was very strong in the game, resolving any outstanding questions after his shaky start a few games back. He stopped a nice breakaway from Anton But (Tampa Bay Lightning) and well deserved the top star honors.
04/23/2007 More Russians released from training camp

World Championships -  Team Russia has released the following players from the World Championships training camp: Grigori Shafigullin (Nashville Predators), Dmitri Vorobiev (Toronto Maple Leafs), Stanislav Zhmakin, Anton But (Tampa Bay Lightning), Evgeny Artyukhin (Artukhin) (Tampa Bay Lightning), Grigori Misharin (Minnesota Wild), Denis Kulyash (Nashville Predators), and Anton Kuryanov . In regards to Kulyash, the young hard shooting defenseman was released at least partially due to still suffering from an injury and played during the EuroTour finals largely on painkillers.

Talent Analysis:
February 2007 Update: has not improved over the years and continues to be a consistent sniper on the Super League level...a capable skater with an above average top speed...does not handle play in traffic well
Back In Russia:
2002-03 Season Review: Anton But started the season off red hot, leading the Super League in points and goals. After two months, he leveled off a bit and the coaching staff moved him around the deep Lokomotiv lineup. But showed a very mature game, following up a mediocre 2001-02 season with a strong performance. The young forward also earned a couple of invitations to the national team, though it seemed the busy scheduled fatigued him.

2001-2002 Update: During the 2000-01 season Anton But established himself as of the leading snipers in Russian hockey. At the end of the season he earned on of the top honors in hockey
NHL Outlook:
Anton was selected by the New Jersey Devils with their 5th pick (119th) overall in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. Anton But is considered to be one of New Jerseys top prospects. As of November 2000, prior to his strong break out 2000-01 season, Anton But was ranked 6th among the NHL drafted players still playing in Russia. Since then But has been traded by New Jersey to Tampa Bay, in a deal that involved defenseman Andrei Zyzin. Unfortunately, Tampa Bay was unable to sign the talented forward during the summer of 2003. He will likely have a nother strong season with Lokomotiv and garner a contract offer during the summer of 2004
