HomeHockeyKirill Marchenko: “If met with Ovechkin, his knees buckled would”
Forward SKA and the Russian team 19-year-old Kirill Marchenko sorry about the cancellation of the world Cup, where he could meet my childhood idol Alexander Ovechkin.
— You, probably, it is doubly disappointing that the world Cup was canceled: it was a once in a lifetime chance to take youth and adults medals in one year…
— Actually, till I said, I hadn’t even thought about. So, Yes…
— Ovechkin may be met, who was called the idol.
Is had a child. But I wanted to meet with him — now the sore is gone. In this respect it’s a shame, I agree.
— Well, let not the idol, but when you first see Ovechkin live, my knees buckled, before a helping hand?
— Of course I will give way. Not that it is not the idol, just before I imitated him in something-14-15 years, and now found their level. I am a player is, not trying to be someone similar. But in any case, I like Ovechkin, I admire the way he plays. And not only he, but all the Russian NHL stars. All in their own right, I like them. Of course, I would like to meet with Ovechkin. I’d be more worried, it would be nice.
— Why, by the way, Ovechkin was equal and he imitated a few years ago? Ivan Morozov’s Datsyuk gave preference, if I’m not mistaken…
At the time, so it was: who scored, the one you most like!
