2012 IIHF World Championship Champion, two-time Stanley Cup Champion
– At the heart of any winning is always a dream. Everyone has his own dream, even the cities and countries. We dreamed to host the World Cup in Russia - and now 11 cities in our country, including Ekaterinburg, preparing to conduct the matches. This is a truly remarkable historical event, which everyone is waiting for with anticipation. And I wish that in 2018 the dream of all Russian fans will become true and our National team will achieve the victory in the World Cup.
