Evgeny Kuznetsov’s Hand Video Bombs RMNB Interview


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.
