According to the father of Minnesota hockey player Kaprizov, Kirill does not have a military ID but is now studying. It was revealed that the Minnesota hockey player was studying in Russia.
The father of Minnesota Wild forward Kirill Kaprizov has denied reports that his son was wanted in the case of buying a military ID.
Kirill is a student, and he couldn’t provide identification. “We don’t have a military ID,” Kirill told Sport-Express.
A Russian hockey player was sent to the army, but he was paid for his service because of the NHL “Red Army Club.”
In the case of Vladimir Fyodorov, a St. Petersburg-based Interior Ministry representative, it was found that for him and CSKA striker Pavel Karnaukhov, law enforcement had questions due to the investigation into the recruitment of Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ivan Fedotov.
On July 1, Fedotov was arrested for evading compulsory military service in St. Petersburg. Authorities surrounded the athlete, who made plans to leave the city and detained him in a raid at various points throughout the city. Acting on a request from mainland prosecutors, police officials said they also served search warrants of several locations related to him.
A hockey player was arrested for allegedly stealing from a shop at the Mall of America. The head of the CDH has ruled out their departure given their strong position in their matchup against the Minnesota Wild next week.
Once there was no verified information on where Fedotov was, the press speculated where he might be. After TASS reported that one of the military units in Novaya Zemlya would be his place of duty, a lawyer for Fedotov called this information speculation. The Russian news outlet Sport-Express reported on July 4th that the goalkeeper is in military unit No. 59075 in Severodvinsk, where the Russian Navy training center is located.
A recent scandal with Russian military recruitment is linked to the detention of Farit Samigullin, a former traffic policeman from Bashkortostan who was involved in helping athletes purchase military plane tickets.
FSB officers arrested Samigullin, which led to his alleged involvement in the issuance of military tickets for athletes – football players from Ufa and hockey players from Salavat Yulaev, where Fedotov played from 2016 to 2019. Kaprizov and Karnaukhov also previously played for the UFA club.
At 25, Vladislav Kaprizov has already accomplished a lot in his career. The powerful forward has one gold and two bronze Olympic medals, a World Championship bronze medal, and the Gagarin Cup to his name. He led Minnesota this season with 47 goals and 61 assists in 81 games and scored eight more points (7+1) in six playoff games. In the regular season, Kaprizov finished fifth among all scorers in the league.
In 2018, Russian forward Vladimir Kaprizov entered the Kemerovo State University, in the full-time department of the Faculty of Physical Culture and Sports.
