It’s been a week since we last saw Evgeny Kuznetsov in the flesh, writhing in pain and being strechered off the ice after suffering a knee injury. On Friday, however, the Traktor Chelyabinsk in-game entertainment crew featured him on the Jumbotron early in the first period so that the young Caps prospect could do a bit of advertising. In a photo published on VKontakte – Russia’s most popular social media site – and later posted on Sports.ru, a laughing Kuzya can be seen holding a sign which reads,”Selling Garage.” Underneath, it features a fake phone number. Clever.
Traktor went on to lose to Yugra, 5-2. Their playoff series is now tied 1-1.
