03/12/2009 Atlant keeps on winning, Andrei Zubarev (Atlanta Thrashers) delivers

Continental Hockey League (KHL) -  In the playoff's first game of the quarterfinals Atlant Mytischi skated past Evgeny Malkin's former team Metallurg Magnitogorsk 2-1 after an overtime. Prospects shined for the home team, who features Ray Emery between the pipes, as after a goal by Czech player Tomas Rolinek (that was caused by an adventurous play by Emery) Alexander Bumagin (Edmonton Oilers) tied it up after getting the puck past Belarusian national Andrei Mezin with a wrist shot from the slot following a quick rush in the offensive zone. In the overtime Andrei Zubarev (Atlanta Thrashers), who has now five points in four playoff matches, scored the game winner with a big slapshot from the left circle that beat Mezin in the five hole. Zubarev is now his team's top scoring defenseman and is second in the overall team statistics for points, second only to regular season's leader Sergei Mozyakin (Columbus Blue Jackets). READ MORE
03/03/2009 Final KHL 2008-09 season statistics updated

Continental Hockey League (KHL) -  We have updated the 2008-09 season statistics, summing up the results for the regular season. Not suprisingly Sergei Mozyakin (Columbus Blue Jackets) finished the regular season atop the scoring charts with Alexei Morozov (Pittsburgh Penguins) close behind him. Konstantin Glazachev (Nashville Predators)'s assention to the top of the KHL has been great to watch, especially considering his struggles to find a good fit over the past several seasons. Alexei Shirokov and Dmitri Pestunov (Phoenix Coyotes) are other promising prospects atop the charts, though Jaromir Jagr (New York Rangers) had a lot to do with Pestunov's success, as the young forward centered the former NHL super star's line in Omsk.

Super League Round 18 - HC Khimik - HC Ak Bars Detailed Game Recap
Talent Analysis:
January 2007 Update: Continues to be one of the best overall offensive forwards in Russia...great hands...probably has one of the best hockey senses of any player still playing in Russia...above average shot...above average speed, but doesn’t stand out as much in this category...very dangerous even without the puck...great stick handling and is capable of stealing the puck away from a defenseman...has got into some political hot water this season for leaving HC CSKA for a bigger paycheck first with HC Avangard, and then finally with HC Khimik. This has allegedly been the reason for his trouble in regards to getting a spot on the national squad despite being one of league leaders in scoring, since the national team’s head coach is his former headmaster with HC CSKA.

Skating: Mozyakin possesses above average speed and good strides...his first step and his top speed are above average. Shot: Mozyakin possesses a great wrist shot, which is one of his primary weapons...has a very good backhanded shot. Technical Ability: Above average puck handler...carries the puck up the ice, but doesn’t usually hold it longer then necessary. Pass: Passing is something Mozyakin has not been known for in the past, but has recently become a strong part of his overall game...shares the puck often, not usually holding on to it for too long (something he has done in the past, especially at the Upper League level)...Hockey Sense: Sees the ice well...most of the time controls situations, making good decisions with the puck
Back In Russia:
Mozyakin’s professional hockey career started with CSKA Moscow, where he decided to make his debut in the Upper League, instead of continuing to play in the North American juniors for QMJHL’s Val-dOr Foreur. The young forward instantly became one of CSKA’s best offensive talents, leading the club in scoring and increasing his point total each year. 2002-03: The smallish, speedy sniper delivered a solid season for CSKA, successfully making the transition from the Upper League to Russia’s premier Super League. The young forward managed almost a point per game ratio last season, taking his place as one of the Super League’s most dynamic scorers. Besides further developing his technical skills, Mozyakin’s hockey sense came along quite well last season. He has started to play smarter, relying more on his playmaking ability. Mozyakin also shored up some of the defensive shortcomings he carried with him in the Upper League. 2003-04: Mozyakin started the season strong, continuing to play the team hockey that allowed him to successfully adjust to the Super League. During the first part of the 2003-04 season, he constituted most of CSKA’s offense, dualing up with one of Russia’s top set up players, Genadi Razin.
NHL Outlook:
Prior to CSKA’s arrival in the Super League, Mozyakin has always had the raw talent, but had been a fan of the "fun and gun" type of offense, carrying the puck up and attempting to score in any situation. This has changed significantly, after the young forward made his Super League debut and his game has changed towards a more team oriented hockey. While still more suited for the European style of hockey, this welcome development has likened the chances of the young forward succeeding in the NHL, since a 5’10 and 165 pound sniper won’t be very successful and won’t last very long in the rigors of an NHL season. With this new versatility, Mozyakin could fit well as a supporting cast of a strong NHL club’s core of players.
