Capitals Prospect Bogdan Trineyev Makes KHL Debut

The Washington Capitals selected forward Bogdan Trineyev, a native of Voronezh, Russia, with the 117th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. So far this season Trineyev, 18, has split his time with Moscow Dynamo’s development teams in the MHL and VHL. On Sunday Trineyev was called up by Dynamo Moscow’s parent club in the KHL.

On Monday Trineyev participated in his first game day morning skate with the KHL team. He also practiced with the team’s power play unit, and scored on a nice shot from the left side.

Trineyev, #88, would make his KHL on Monday evening against Vityaz, playing left wing on the third line for Dynamo.

Trineyev recorded 7:25 (10 shifts) of ice time including 1:31 on the power play, in Dynamo’s 5-1 loss to Alex Semin and Vityaz.

Trineyev, 6’2” and 190 pounds, has played within the Moscow Dynamo system since 2017-18, but had not yet played with their KHL club.

During the 2019-20 season, Trineyev primarily played with their MHL affiliate, MHK Moskva Dynamo. He played in 36 games, scoring 12 goals and recording 14 assists. He also played one game with Dynamo Tver at the VHL level.

This season, Trineyev has played seven games with MHK Moskva Dynamo, scoring 6 goals and recording 4 assists in 10 games. He also played 7 games with Dynamo Krasnogorsk in the VHL but recorded no points.

    WOW Semin is stil playing. Seems like he has played there longer than he did in the NHL but I bet he doesnt score like he did here.

    I’d probably consider the VHL more like the Russian version of the AHL, although the level is probably like ECHL. While the MHL is more like Russian’s equivalent of junior hockey. Bogdan’s done well in the MHL this year.
