06/14/2009 Sergei Zinovjev (Boston Bruins), Viktor Kozlov (Washington Capitals), sign with Salavat Yulayev

Continental Hockey League (KHL) -  One of Russia’s top centers, Sergei Zinovjev (Boston Bruins) finally has a new team. The veteran forward, who finished the season with HC Dynamo after being traded there from HC Kazan was rumored to be going to St. Petersburg’s SKA. Those rumors are proven to have been unfounded, as Zinovjev is now one of the newest high profile acquisitions of the Ufa based club. The club has also acquired Washington Capitals center Viktor Kozlov (Washington Capitals), more than compensating for the off-season losses of Alexei Tereschenko (Dallas Stars) and several other forwards. While undoubtedly a great talent, it remains to be seen how long Zinovjev will remain with his new club, as the forward has had a history of difficult relationships with his employers.
05/31/2009 Former Ak Bars players Alexei Tereschenko (Dallas Stars) and Igor Schadilov (Washington Capitals) coming back

Continental Hockey League (KHL) -  Russian professional hockey veterans Alexei Tereschenko (Dallas Stars) and Igor Schadilov (Washington Capitals) are returning to HC Ak Bars . Both players left Kazan for HC Salavat Yulayev two years ago and both have enjoyed 2 strong seasons in Ufa. Tereschenko rose from under the shadow of the Zaripov-Zinovjev-Morozov line and will now actually replace Zinovjev on this top line in Kazan. Schadilov’s career went well at first, but he was forced to miss a large portion of the 2008-09 season due to an eye injury suffered after being hit by a puck. Fortunately, his surgeries went well in Germany and the veteran defenseman just signed a four year deal with HC Ak Bars .
04/14/2009 Kazan wins Gagarin Cup to close out inagural KHL season

Continental Hockey League (KHL) -  The end of the inaugural KHL season could not have been written a better way than this! Well it could have been with more scoring, but a game seven between the league’s two strongest clubs was a great way to finish it after an entertaining series. The somewhat underdog Kazan came up on top, with Alexei Morozov (Pittsburgh Penguins) scoring the only goal in the last period of the game. The club was an underdog since it has lost a few of its top players in the past two seasons including Sergei Zinovjev (Boston Bruins), Alexei Tereschenko (Dallas Stars) and goalie Alexander Eremenko . However, while some of the replacements have not been as impressive a few young players and newcomers have come up big in the series including Andrei Pervyshin (St. Louis Blues) and Nikita Alexeev (Chicago Blackhawks). Pervyshin has been a long time member of Ak Bars after leaving Lokomotiv but only this year has he become a regular contributor at the top level, while Nikita Alexeev (Chicago Blackhawks) has bounced between Russia and NHL, showing signs of immense potential but failing to break-out in either league. Lokomotiv was close to winning the series on several occasions, but the break down point for the club, despite the series continuing for another week must have been the failure to keep the 3:0 lead in game two that was eventually won by Ak Bars after a spectacular come back. Alexei Yashin and a few imported players are the clear leaders of the squad and it will be interesting to see what happens next year and whether Yashin will remain in Russia or return to the NHL after a two season absence.

Talent Analysis:
Alexei Tereschenko is a classic Russian smallish center with smooth skating and great creativity on the ice. Alexei is a fast skater, able to move through traffic. Alexei is also very creative with the puck, able to effectively use his wingers on the attack. Alexei Tereschenko also possesses a strong work ethic and great on and off ice leadership skills. He displayed his leadership abilities when he lead the Russian Under 20 team to the gold medal at the 2000 World Junior Chamionships. Despite his skating and passing abilities, Alexei is at a disadvantage against larger defenseman due to his smaller build. He needs to get the full use out of his 5’11 frame and bulk up to be able to compete in the NHL. Also, even though his team performed poorly during the 2000-01 season, it is still unacceptable to record only 6 points (3+3) in 40 games. Alexei is only 20 and has shown signs of talent during this dreadful season for Dynamo Moscow, but he needs to mature his skills to achieve a balance between defensive play and his scoring.

Here is what Russian hockey expert, Maxim Dostoevsky had to say about Alexei Tereschenko:
"He's a crafty two-way forward with solid defensive upside. Tereschenko started the season on Dynamo's top line. But since than had "successfully" fallen to the fourth unit (played along side Mighty Ducks prospect Alexei Smirnov and Dmitri Semenov). Spend some games in the press-box in second portion of the season. His demotion was due to luck of consistency - production wise; since there's nothing wrong with his work ethic. At 5'11 he's a bit undersized and needs to improve his body strength. He gets knocked off the puck a bit too often. He's a fast player with above average skills. He has some leadership abilities, as he was Russia U-20 team captain at the last WJC. If ever makes it to NHL may become a decent third liner a la Lyaschenko and Nikolishin, but a bit weaker defensively"
Back In Russia:
Alexei Tereschenko is a product of the Dynamo Moscow farm system. He has grown up to become one of Dynamo Moscow’s leaders at the age of only 20. While playing in Russia, Alexei has displayed great character beyond his ages. A few years ago he returned from a career ending back injury despite all the prognosis and predictions otherwise. Alexei started his professional career with Dynamo Moscow’s junior team Dynamo 2, where he became best friends with Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Alexei Ponikarovsky and Washington Capitals prospect Igor Schadilov. After displaying skills superior to that level of hockey, he was promoted to Dynamo’s farm team THK Tver during the 98-99 season, where he continued his high level of play and recording 7 points (3+4) in just 12 games. During that same season Alexei also saw some playing time on Dynamo Moscow’s main roster, appearing in 1 regular season and 2 playoff games.

During the 99-00 season, Alexei Tereschenko has become a permanent member on Dynamo’s roster. After the 99-00 season, during which Dynamo Moscow won the Russian Super League gold medals, a lot of key players, including 1999 Russia’s Goalie of the Year, Vitali Yeremeev, experienced defensemen Alexander Khavanov and Vitali Proshkin, and powerful forwards Alexander Prokopiev, Alexander Kharitonov, left the team for the NHL or other Russian Super League teams. In light of their departure, Alexei was given the chance this season to establish himself on the main roster of Dynamo Moscow. Despite the team’s lackluster performance and relatively low production from Alexei, this season has become very useful for him, as he has been given key responsibilities that he would have never received at such a young age if the aforementioned players would have stayed with the team.

Besides his Russian Super League experience, Alexei Tereschenko’s International experience has convinced the NHL scouts of his great value. He captained the Russian gold medal winning 2000 Russian Junior National Team and recorded 7 points and a +6 rating during that campaign and was named to the tournament's first all star team. Alexei also participated in two other tournaments with the Russian Junior National Team during the 1999 and 2000 seasons. He registered 5 points (3+2) and a +5 rating in only four games at the Four Nations Tournament in St. Petersburg. He also participated in the 2000 Five Nations Tournament, registering a goal in three games.
NHL Outlook:
During the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, Alexei was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the third round and 91st overall. Alexei’s leadership is an immense asset already at his young age. His skills are already developed to the level where he can freely compete at the Super League level which is equivalent to the AHL. If his development continues at the current pace, Alexei will be at the Dallas Stars Training Camp within the next two years.
