Grachev Named Player of the Game in Loss
Friday November 21st 2008, 1:43 am

Evgeni Grachev scored a first period shorthanded goal and earned player of the game honors for Team Russia, but his teammate on the Brampton Battalion, Cody Hodgson, trumped him, scoring a hat trick to be named player of the game for the OHL All Stars as Canada doubled Russia to pick up their second win in the ADT Canada Russia Challenge, 6-3. “He’s a great guy – he’s a lot of fun,” Hodgson said of his Brampton teammate on the tournament web site. “He’s not what they say in a typical Russian. He jokes with the guys and he’s a great hockey player as well. I didn’t notice before how big he is because I never saw him as competition before. But he’s huge. He’s a great hockey player.”  Highlights from the game, including Grachev’s breakaway shorthander, are available courtesy of Sportsnet.

    Maybe I’ll just wait and buy a Grachev shirt… however my support will ultimately end his progress!
