Hockey player “Washington” Orlov: upset by Samsonov’s departure from the team
MOSCOW, July 30 – RIA Novosti, Andrey Senchenko. National Hockey League (NHL) Hockey Club “Washington” Dmitry Orlov, in a conversation with journalists, expressed his sadness at the departure of goalkeeper Ilya Samsonov from the team.
At the end of the season, “Washington” did not make a qualifying offer to the goalkeeper. He signed with Toronto. Washington selected Russia’s Ivan Miroshnichenko in the first round of the 2022 draft.
On Saturday, Orlov attended a charity hockey match under the auspices of the Artemy Panarin Foundation with the participation of Alexander Ovechkin, other famous hockey players and stars of show business.
“Artemy personally invited me to the game. I immediately accepted, which is good. Charities should be done more often. I know Artemy played last year, he did well. I feel good physically, I train for it. For a long time. “I’m happy with my current form, but I need to shed a few extra pounds. Preparations are going according to plan. I’m going to fly somewhere to the US at the end of August, it’s okay,” said Washington’s defender.
