Ulanov speaks again!

Now he has 2 points on the season!

What's been happenin' in Yaroslavl:
On 12 January, Yaroslavl ventured to Moscow and lost by a score of 3-1. They came home, and on 16 January they made like the Oilers and continued to lose. This time it was to САЛАВАТ ЮЛАЕВ Уфа, by a score of 4-2.

18 January saw Yaroslavl back on the road to take on Novosibirsk, this time winning with a score of 4-1. On 20 January, Yaroslavl took on the "Moscow Area" Chemists at home, and won with a score of 4-2. And Ulanov got an assist on the third goal.

The Yaroslavl Lokomotiv guestbook/message board has discovered the Ulanov fan club. It got almost 100 hits from Yaroslavl yesterday from the messgae board. Why didn't I learn Russian instead of French?

I never claimed to be an artist...

This is the sign I brought to the January 12th game versus Minnesota. I made it in the car on the way to the game.

Bringin' Sexy Back!

A girl can dream. And there is a movement in the works. My letter-writing campaign of last year was a complete failure. Are you willing to let us have him back, Yaroslavl?

Now on Facebook

I told you he has fans.

A partner in crime, it appears.

Fingers crossed, but Ulanov has signed a contract with Yaroslavl Lokomotiv. Unlike some people, he might be classy enough to honour it.

Happy birthday, Mr. Gilbert!

Tom Gilbert played his first regular season NHL game tonight versus San Jose. It's also his 24th birthday! It was pointed out today to me by an "avid" fan club blog reader that Tom Gilbert looks slightly like a young Ulanov. This would explain why he makes me giggly. Henceforth he shall be known as "Ulanov Jr."

And our congratulations to Mathieu Roy, who scored his first NHL goal tonight.

Well that's just not right.

Not much to report on the Ulanov front (especially when, upon preliminary inspection, he appears to have been sent to the press box last game)...

Yaroslavl visited the Nizhnekamsk Petrochemists on January 5th, and beat them 3-2. Ulanov spent a pair of minutes in the penalty box for "delay by the hands." Yaroslavl got its ass kicked on January 7th by the Kazan Leopards with a score of 4-1. I'm fairly certain Ulanov didn't play that game. Ulanov's legions of fans have been crying themselves to sleep ever since.

The silence is deafening.

Ulanov has been terribly quiet as of late. We can only assume that it's because he doesn't get much ice time (I actually don't have a clue how much ice time he gets...but it's not enough for the magic Russian hands).

Yaroslavl Lokomotiv in their last few games:
December 21st: Yaroslavl tied Cherepovets 1-1. No points or PIM for dear Ulie.
December 23rd: Yaroslavl gets shalacked by St. Petersberg 5-2. Still no word from Ulanov
December 26th: Moscow Dynamo falls in the face of the intimidating Lokomotiv. Ulanov continues to deny us humour involving penalties and poor translations.
December 28th: "ХК the Ministry of Internal Affairs Tver" (?) beat Yaroslavl in OT with a score of 5-4. Ulanov is an island.

Next game up is tomorrow against the Nizhnekamsk Petrochemists. Yaroslavl last played (and lost to) them on Oct 23rd, before the days of Ulanov.
