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!

I miss him a lot. Why are such sexy players created, then taken away and sent to Russia? Alexander Keith would like to know!

Well, it's like they say: better to have been turned on and lost than never to have been turned on at all. That is what they say, right?

I just have to say I love this man, and this website is a testament to his greatness. I mean do you have any idea the contributions hes made to the blue and copper? Thousands, if not millions of blocked shots taken off his big toe to his big nose. This man has pulled off multi-goal games (Ok, maybe just one but it was a gooder). And how many hockey players can say they played with one of the grittiest hockey players from the ancient soviet regime era. Horcoff, Pisani, Smyth all have to pay back this man for the gifts of wisdom he bestowed upon them. And with that I say cheers and im quite looking forward to wearing that #55 jersey this upcoming christmas
