  1. Nikita Tryamkin | D

    Tryamkin was pretty good against weaker opponents in the first three games, he played over 17 minutes against Belarus. Later on his playing time was significantly decreased, he was criticized for the mistake leading to the Jaskin's goal for Czechs, he was benched during the game against Slovakia and did not play in the last two games (both losses) against Sweden and Canada. In general, this was the first time Tryamkin had participated on such high international level with best players in the game, this was great learning experience for his development. As the Russian team coach Vorobiev said, Nikita played for the first time for the national team in the worlds, obviously Tryamkin did not have enough experience but Nikita would be fine going forward.

    Not sure if Tryamkin will play tomorrow against Canada. He did not play last game for Russia against Sweden, and in the game before that against Slovakia he played under 8 minutes. Not sure what happened to him...
  3. 2018 NHL Entry Draft

    Unfortunately, Vitaly Kravtsov does not think about the NHL yet. In his latest interview he said: So far I don't think about the NHL draft at all. I can say that I am definitely not going to move to North America yet. I am planning to play next year in Russia.

    Tryamkin wears his usual # 88. He played with Hafizullin as a stay at home defenseman with zero points letting Hafizullin to join attack several times and get two assists. Hafizullin was injured before Olympic Games and did not participate.

    Tryamkin is officially included in the Russian team and is playing in the first game against France. The score is 3-0 after the first period.

    Well this is quite complicated subject due to the NHL playoffs happening at the same time as the IIHF world championships. The teams submit the names of the participating players at the first Championship Directorate which is on May 4. The maximum number of players allowed on a Team Registration Form at the beginning of the World Championship is 22 skaters and 3 goalies. The minimum is 15 skaters and 2 goalies. At the first Directorate meeting, the teams must name at least the minimum number of 15 skaters and 2 goalkeepers. Players can be added throughout the tournament until the roster is full. The remaining players up to the allowed maximum of 22 + 3 must be submitted for players' control two hours before any of the following championship games.

    The official Russian roster is pretty short right now consisting only of 17 players including just 5 defensemen. Tryamkin and two other defensemen from the preliminary roster are waiting for some NHL playoff news.

    News somewhat related to Pouliot...

    Fortunately (or unfortunately) he is the man of his word that means another two years for us to wait until his contract expires.

    This is still preliminary roster and might change depending on the NHL playoff results. Mikhail Sergachev (Tampa) and Dmitry Orlov (Washington) are two defensemen who will be in the team if their clubs are eliminated.
