Уланов Игорь's first game!
First of all, the fan club would like to extend our thanks to our friend over in Russia who has been keeping us informed and sending us pictures. I'll post the name as soon as we get permission.
Yaroslavl Lokomotiv played at home yesterday, Nov. 15th against Amur Khabarovsk and beat them 5-3. After extensive use of online translators, I have determined that Igor Ulanov (whose profile is now up) did not score a goal, but got two penalties: a 2 minute for "delay by the hands," and a 10 minute misconduct for the "insult of the judges and the bahaviour of the players." Sexy. It appears as though Ulanov (Уланов!) has adopted the number 5 as his jersey number, one that he has also worn in the NHL. SIGH. He looks so much better in blue.
Next up: Yaroslavl plays at home tomorrow, Nov. 17 against the Moscow Wings of Councils (?) who they plast played on Sept. 19. The Wings of Councils are undoubtedly shaking in their skates, for the smackdowns delivered by Ulanov are fierce!
