The Capitals selected Trineyev, a native of Voronezh, Russia, with the 117th overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft. Trineyev played with the MHL’s Dynamo Moskva last season.
Trineyev recorded 12 goals, 26 points, and a plus-8 rating in 36 games last season in the MHL. During the MHL Playoffs, Trineyev tallied no points and an even rating in two games.
Trineyev had four goals, six points, and was a plus-5 rating through six games this season when he was drafted by the Capitals on October 7.

Analysis – We have only seen three of Trineyev’s games in the month of October (two KHL, One VHL) but we are impressed with what we saw. His puck sense and ability to read the play is well above most of the other players on the ice at the VHL level. He is also more of a physical player than we first anticipated.
If recent trends are any indication, Trineyev will be getting plenty of playing time as he has been switching between the VHL and KHL, depending on who has the next game. Hard to say if this continues, but it’s great experience for Bogdan.

Trineyev’s season is complete. For the regular season in the MHL, Trineyev played in 33 games, scoring 15 goals and recording 15 assists for 30 points. He also played in 22 games at the VHL level for Dynamo, scoring one goal and recording one assist. He even got into three games for Moscow Dynamo at the KHL level. Look for Trineyev to play mostly in the VHL next season, with a few more games at the KHL level.
Trineyev is a forward who plays a classic power forward game, using his big 6-foot-2 frame to work his way around the ice, getting into the dirty areas to score goals or laying down hits to give the opponent something to think about.
His skating and shot are relatively raw but can support his game plan. His compete level is considered very high as is his willingness to go into the dirty areas despite, being physically immature.
Offensively, he is considered to have a high IQ and is willing to provide screens on the forecheck. He consistently supports forwards when he does not have the puck and can get open in dangerous areas.
On the defensive side, Trineyev can get sucked in low and leave the point man open. He seems to have the mentality of a center. While he can get out of position, he’ll show effort in the defensive zone.
Trineyev will likely begin the 2021-22 season in the VHL, and will likely see callups to the KHL. He will need to begin getting comfortable with the top league, as it’s likely the Capitals will look for him to find a starting position with Moscow Dynamo in the 2021-22 season. He could also find his way to Hershey that season.
