Capitals prospect Ivan Mirochnichenko, who only recently was cleared to play hockey again, has already provided plenty of action during the first period for Omsk Yastreb (Hawks) game against Sputnik Almetievsk in Almetievsk, Tatarstan on Friday.

Miroshnichenko laid a big hit on Sputnik Almetievsk forward Riyaz Galiev early in the game, answering any and all questions regarding his physical capabilities.

At 17:35 into the first period, he also scored a goal, getting assists from Nikolai Khvorov and Vyacheslav Malov. The goal increased the Omsk Yatreb to 2-0.

Omsk Yatreb went on to win the game 4-1.

Since returning to action, he has played in three games, scored two goals, and recorded one assist. He has averaged one point per game and is currently on a two-game goal-scoring streak.

The Capitals selected Miroshnichenko with the 20th overall selection in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft back on July 7th of this year.

2022 has been an extremely challenging year for Capitals’ first-round draft pick Ivan Miroshnichenko. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma back in January but cleared by doctors to return to skating and workouts after successfully completing a course of treatment in Germany in June.

Miroshnichenko has been working out with Avangard Omsk’s VHL (Junior) club since October 21 and was cleared to return to game action on November 6.
