Evgeny Kuznetsov’s Hand Video Bombs RMNB Interview

evgeny-kuznetsovs-videobomb

With each game he plays, Evgeny Kuznetsov grows more comfortable on the ice. On Saturday morning, twelve hours after recording his first NHL point and first multi-point game with the Washington Capitals, Kuznetsov showed that he’s also growing more comfortable in the role of locker room prankster.

Here’s the story. As I filmed Ian’s interview with Jaroslav Halak, a figure walked towards the stall just to my right. He said “hello” in a Russian accent, came up behind me, and then put his hand in front of my camera for a few seconds. He totally ruined my shot.

I looked over to find a sheepish Kuyza standing at his locker, proud of what he had accomplished.

After we were done talking to Halak, I tried to explain to Kuznetsov that the Capitals have a rich history of messing with video interviews, namely the famous Brouwer Bombs. The 21-year-old Russian had a blank look on his face as I spoke. He had no idea what I was talking about.

Anyway, there you go, Evgeny Kuznetsov’s first NHL video bomb. And of course he did it to us.
