Washington Capitals forward prospect Bogdan Trineyev, who is currently playing in his first full season for Moscow Dynamo in the KHL, scored his first career goal in Russia’s top league on January 8. It was the team’s only goal in a 3-1 loss to Torpedo.

Trineyev, 20, notched his second career KHL goal on Thursday in Dyanmo’s 3-0 win over Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg. He also added an assist in the game.

Trineyev began the month of January with an impressive primary assist on January 3. He would setup the tally with a pass while flat on the ice.

Trineyev now has two goals and seven assists in 26 games played in the KHL. He initially floated around the lineup but has settled in at left wing on the second line for most of the month of January.

Trineyev, a 6’-2”, 190lb winger, was drafted by the Capitals in the 4th round (#117 overall) of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. 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 in time for 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 before Hershey’s postseason concluded.

Trineyev’s brief trip to the US last spring included a trip to DC for a short visit with fellow Russians currently in the Capitals system. Alex Ovechkin had already returned to Russia, but Trineyev did get to spend some time with his idol before he departed.

“I saw him, but not as much as I would like. Alexander was busy with his business in the NHL playoffs. (laughs) I know that he often visits Dynamo in the summer, so I will have a chance to ask him a few questions.”

Trineyev did indeed catch-up with his idol over the summer and skated in an exhibition game with Ovechkin on August 21.

The ideal development scenario for Trineyev would see him play the majority of the season at the KHL level and and be primed for a return to Hershey in September.

    I hope that the anti-Russian comments I’m hearing and seeing (especially from Canada) don’t convince our Russian prospects to stay away next year.

    If the NHL wants to celebrate diversity, why not have nights honoring players from the various countries who are making the NHL so much more than just the North American Hockey League? How much richer (in quality not just income) have stars such as Ovi or Stamkos made the NHL? The Canadian hockey press might not want to admit it, but international players are important to the NHL so why not recognize it?

    I don’t see Russians staying away from North America. And I don’t see the NHL blocking them from coming. As Frye said, those international players are important to NHL and the hockey economy. I’d certainly like to see Bogdan over here.

      Trineyev’s trip to the US last spring is an interesting one, and there are still a few details I think are being left out, but he flew to the Country of Georgia in order to get a US visa. Had to stay there a week, then flew into US. Five days later he played in an AHL playoff game. Bears head coach at the time said they had to do a lot to get him there, but provided no details.

      • novafyre says:

        I see three problem areas
        First off are the leagues. A league (NHL, AHL, ECHL, junior) could decide to exclude certain players. Or, through inaction, fail to encourage certain players.
        The US or Canada could make the visa process impossible or too difficult to be feasible for all but the richest players.
        A city’s press and local activists could make life hell for players living there. Or make it appear so.

        Again, I’m thinking not just of the NHL (even though most of the exclusion calls have been for NHL players such as Ovi) but of all NA leagues. And, what appears to us to be a minority of anti-whatever sentiment could be blown up by foreign press into appearing major. Will young hockey players decide to just avoid this? Would the KHL and other non-NA leagues try to take advantage? Based on news reports Iread there are certain places in the US and world that I would not want to go to right now. Risks might be overblown, but based away from that spot, those news reports are what I have to go by. What message is being sent?
