Avangard Omsk Head Coach Fired

It didn’t take long for the first coaching casualty in the KHL. Avangard’s head coach Sergei Gersonskiy and his assistant Igor Zhilinskiy were fired after just 6 games. Avangard, one of the best teams in the KHL on paper, got off to a 2-4 start on the ice despite making the biggest offseason signing in Jaromir Jagr.

The new coach will be announced in a matter of a couple of days and he won’t be Russian. According to Avangard’s board all the good Russian coaches are currently under contract so they’re looking to sign someone from abroad.

Dinamo Riga Goaltender Assaulted on the Street, Out for Three Months

Egdars Masalskis, Dinamo Riga’s starting goaltender who was just named KHL Goalie of the Week was assaulted by five or six individuals on his way home from a post game dinner yesterday in Old Riga (historic downtown). Masalskis sustained serious injuries (reportedly a broken leg among other things) that will keep him out of action for at least three months.

It’s very difficult to add much to this shocking bit of news. We wish Edgars a speedy recovery and hope that the human garbage that’s responsible for this random act of violence will be found as soon as possible. Based on some reports the Latvian police have apparently obtained a video of the incident (Old Riga is riddled with security cameras). Whatever is coming to them would be well deserved.

It is unfortunate that there is a certain type of people who would gang up on a random individual and beat them to a pulp for no other reason than their own inadequacy and boredom.

Dinamo Riga’s Second Home Game Highlights

Dinamo Riga’s second home game turned into a goaltending duel between Atlant Mytischi’s Ray Emery and Dinamo’s own Edgars Masalskis. Emery finally succumed to a couple of goals in the last 10 minutes while Masalskis came up with the shutout. Final score 2-0.

3rd period highlights with some analysis in Latvian. Woohoo, you get to hear what Latvian sounds like (and no, it’s not a Russian dialect… if you speak Russian you do not understand a thing in Latvian).

Highlights of the whole game recorded by a dedicated fan with a camcorder from the stands. Gives a really good idea of how good the crowd atmosphere is in Riga.

Introducing Nikita Filatov

No KHL games to post this weekend, but how about a sweet video compilation of a rising star, Nikita Filatov. Let’s hope he makes Columbus roster this year because with Nikolai Zherdev off to Big Bad Apple, Rick Nash is now the only show in town.
