We will remind that on August 23, the international Federation of hockey (IIHF) disqualified Kuznetsova four years for violating anti-doping rules. A sample of the 27-year-old hockey player gave a positive result for the presence of cocaine.
The removal of the athlete does not apply to the NHL.
Kuznetsov is the owner of the Cup Stanley in structure “Washington”.
