PLAYER FORECAST

Trineyev had a decent season in Russia, and was somewhat impressive in his rather instant immersion in Hershey in May, considering he was off for the entire month of April. He quickly earned the trust of the coaching staff and was inserted in two postseason games where he held his own.

Russian media outlet Sport24 is reporting that Trineyev will return to Dynamo Moscow next season on loan from the Capitals. Trineyev played all of last season for Dynamo, both at the KHL and MHL (juniors) levels before making a brief appearance with the Bears in May. This is the best development path for Trineyev, who will get one more season to try and find a semi-regular spot on Dynamo’s KHL team, where he has yet to score a goal. This would make Trineyev 21 by the time he makes his first attempt at a full season in Hershey.
