Mystery solved: Canada loses a hero.







It was bittersweet news. I came home to the sports section after a long day of vinyl organising. And school work. All those unanswered questions are answered. Igor Ulanov will play hockey again. But not on this continent. Ulanov will start playing next month for Alexei Mikhnov's old team, Yaroslavl (as reported by The Edmonton Journal).

It's bittersweet. Once I discover how to translate Yaroslavl's homepage, I will again be able to faithfully follow the career of the player whose jersey I proudly wear everywhere. In my heart, no other player will ever compare to Igor Ulanov. Yes, even the Swedish charms of Daniel Tjarnqvist.

I am at a loss for words, but I'm sure there will be tear-stained poetry to follow. Good luck in Russia, Igor.

Don! Where are you? I'm coming back to Edmonton to marry you and have your children. Sunday! I'll call you!

How can I get a Yaroslavl jersey, and when do they play the Flames next?

You might try breaking into Mikhnov's place of residence to fill your Yaroslavl jersey needs. And they play Calgary on Sunday.
