Flyers Alumni Russia Tour: Feb. 20, 2017




11:30 p.m. (Moscow)

Earlier today, we walked from our hotel, across Red Square and to the rink adjacent to the Gum. The rink has a skating area that measures 3,000 square meters (32,291 square feet) and no player benches. As a result, our final match of our Russia tour was conducted as an old-fashioned shinny game, with all of the players on both sides on the ice at the same time and few rules (no offside, no center ice faceoff after a goal, no scoreboard or game clock, etc.).

After a short flight on Aeroflot from St. Petersburg to Moscow and setting our stuff down at the classic European luxury Hotel National, we set out on Red Square to meet up again with Alexei Yashin. Alexei was running a kids hockey clinic (or "master class" as its called here)  on the outdoor rink at Red Square. We came to rinkside to greet Alexei and meet some of the kids.

We played the SKA/Gazprom team today at 12,300-seat Ice Palace in St. Petersburg. We were told the game was sold out, and the admission tickets were sold separately from the KHL game pitting SKA St. Petersburg against Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod in the evening. The game was televised, and we had players interviewed by the Russian sports broadcasting equivalent of ESPN.

We played a friendly game this afternoon on the outdoor rink at the SKA training facility in St. Petersburg. Our tour co-organizer Scotty MacPherson assembled the group. Some real good players on their side. Those guys came to play, too. The facility is very nice.
