Nikulin was consistently Russia’s back up player in case of injuries, but has not received any ice time. He did skate for the squad at the Sweden Games just a couple of weeks ago at the final leg of the EuroTour circuit.

05/11/2006 Perezhogin (Montreal) will not join Team Russia

In an interview with Gazeta.ru Team Russia’s head coach Vladimir Krikunov confirmed that Alexander Perezhogin (Montreal Canadiens) will not join the Russian squad. The coach had the following to say regarding the topic to the publication’s correspondent Alexei Shevchenko.

Rumor has it that Alexander Perezhogin will join the team?
V. Krikunov: That’s not true. I doubt he will be able to help us. Who among the forwards is he better than? Sasha spent a not so successful season in the NHL. He scored only 9 goals. If this is converted to the number of goals in the Super League, it would only be two goals.

05/08/2006 Ivan Nepriayev (Washington Capitals) undergoes nose surgery

Team Russia lost the services of 2006 Olympic team member Ivan Nepriayev (Washington Capitals), as the young center was forced to undergo nose surgery at the conclusion of the 2005-06 season. One of the top call up players during Olympics in Torino, Nepriayev enjoyed the most successful season of his budding career in 2005-06. The Washington Capitals risk losing the rights to one of the club’s top prospects this summer if the management is unable to sign him to a contract. The NHL club has reportedly almost signed the young forward to a contract three seasons ago, but something went wrong with the deal and Nepriayev remained in Yaroslavl. Part of the difficulty in bringing Ivan to North America has been his popularity with HC Lokomotiv, as well as the high stature of his father in the local gubernatorial government.
