The month of August has been building to a crescendo for Washington Capitals forward prospect Bogdan Trineyev. He spent last Saturday hanging out and participating in an open training session with his idol, Alex Ovechkin. The week before he recorded goals in back-to-back preseason games for Moscow Dynamo. Then on Thursday he kept the scoring streak going with an impressive assist to give Dynamo a 2-1 win over rivals CSKA.

Trineyev’s first preseason goal came on August 17 against Vityaz. He would be in the right spot to collect a loose puck and knock-home the score.

Trineyev began the preseason at left wing on the fourth line, but has been moving his way up the lineup throughout the preseason. Last week he started on the third line and made his way to left wing on the second line where he would record his second goal of the preseason.

Trineyev, 20, was returned to the fourth line on Thursday, but continued his scoring with a nice primary assist in Dynamo’s 2-1 win over CSKA. The goal was the game winner.

Trineyev, a 6’-2”, 190lb winger, was drafted by the Capitals in the 4th round (#117 overall) of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. He spent his entire playing career within the Dynamo Moscow organization until this past spring.

The 2020-21 season saw Trineyev play at all three levels of the KHL system, including three games with the parent club, Dynamo Moscow. Trineyev spent a majority of his season with Dynamo Moskva of the MHL, where he had 15 goals and 15 assists in 33 games played.

The 2021-22 season saw more of the same for Trineyev. He started the season on the injury list with an injured wrist that he sustained in pre-season action. In the end, he finished the season playing in just 11 games with the parent KHL team and recorded no points. He played 21 games with the junior team, scoring three goals and recording 15 assists.

On May 2 Trineyev signed his first NHL contract with the Capitals and the following day signed an amateur tryout agreement with the Hershey Bears. Trineyev then made his way from Russia to Hershey (via Turkey and Georgia) in time to get in a few practices and made his AHL debut in the Bears must-win Game 2 of their first round series with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. He would play in two postseason games with the Bears.

It’s likely that Trineyev will spend most of the 2022-23 season with Dynamo Moscow, but he could see a return to Hershey following the conclusion of the KHL season, which begins next week.

    OV does look like he is trimmed up a bit. Great to see.

    Also, Trineyev looks good. Nice size, good nose for the puck. Hope he continues to improve!
