camping with young kids? yes, you can do it!
by Jen Pajerski
My family and I recently returned from a 10-day road trip that included two cabins, three campgrounds, hundreds of miles, and countless memories. Of those 10 days, four nights were spent in a tent in three different locations. Yes, that is correct. A tent with a four-year old and a 22-month old. And let me tell you, it was so much fun! I know some of you are giving me the side eye right now, and I know that camping is not for everyone, but let me tell you that if you enjoy camping, do not let having kids stop you!
summer books for kids, that you need to read too!
by Rachel Nevergall
Are you ready for adventure? I gathered fourteen of my favorite books to read to my kids during the summer, some that celebrate the joys of a sunny day and get you outside, ones that spark imagination or teach you a new mindset shift, and plenty that evoke the wonder of summer in children and adults alike.
eight essentials for the perfect picnic
by Karri Larson
I have found that in this world there are either picnic lovers or picnic loathers. There was a time when I was not too fond of packing up all the food and paraphernalia to have a successful picnic, it all seemed like too much work. But then I cut myself some slack, learned the joy of picnic “take out” and realized there is one really great reward that comes when you dine at a park that makes it all worth it.
Here, in no certain order, is my list of 8 essentials for the perfect picnic:
why I over-scheduled our summer
by Maureen Zhao
Well, after experimenting a few years with the notion that I love my kids too much to not want to be with them all summer long, I discovered that my children don’t necessarily function best this way. I’ve learned, especially thanks to our eldest, that they function best when they have a schedule and routine…and I am not the best at providing that on my own. I wish I was, but I’ve learned that I am not.
summer reading at the library
by Amber Soler
In the Twin Cities, we are so darn lucky to have a great system of so many libraries with amazing summer reading programs to keep our kids motivated to read all summer long. In the metro, we have MELSA, Metropolitan Library Service Agency, which “is an alliance of over 100 public libraries in the seven-county Twin Cities metro, working together to bring the best library services and programs to you.”
All of the MELSA libraries have different summer reading programs for kids and teens and all of them involve prizes! Personally, I love that I don’t need to incentivize reading on my own and the library will do it for me. Not only do the reading programs encourage reading, but they also reward good behavior and kind deeds, like paying someone a compliment or helping out a parent with a chore around the house.
It’s been nearly six years since we began connecting moms in the Twin Cities. Twin Cities Moms Blog is now Twin Cities Mom Collective. The #1 local resource for moms in and around the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, TCMC is made up of more than 100 women driving community to connect, empower and inspire local moms.

Minnesota summer camps brace for huge demand after pandemic pause
Overnight camps across Minnesota are preparing for a return of campers — and a surge in demand — one year after the pandemic cancelled summer plans for thousands of families.
Why it matters: Closures were devastating for the industry’s financials, but directors say the bigger losses were for kids.
- “Kids that didn’t go to camp [last summer], not only didn’t get the mental health benefits of being outdoors, but they didn’t get to be social, gain independence, increase their skills and confidence [while participating] in fun activities,” said Niki Geisler, VP of camping for YMCA of the North.
The big picture: Nationwide, about 80% of overnight camps were out of commission last summer, per the American Camp Association, impacting an estimated 19 million kids. This year is shaping up to be much different.
- “The vast majority are trying to open and operate as much at scale as possible,” ACA president and CEO Tom Rosenberg told Torey.
The state of play: After a year of being cooped up, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that interest is booming. “Enrollment reports look phenomenal compared to 2019,” Geisler said of the Y’s day, overnight and family camps.
- Nearly all the sessions at two Minnesota Girl Scout programs, Camp Elk River in Zimmerman and Camp Lakamaga in Marine on the St. Croix, sold out within days.
- Camp Foley in Pine River is also reporting high demand, with hundreds of campers enrolled and some age groups almost at capacity.
COVID caveats: Camps are still awaiting updated guidance from MDH, but most plan to follow best practices the ACA developed using experiences from the camps that did open last summer.
- Pre-arrival testing and social-distancing protocols, including masking and keeping campers in small groups for contact tracing, will be the norm.
- The precautions worked for Camp Pillsbury in Owatonna, which ran several 2020 sessions with zero COVID-19 cases.
- “We made accommodations for what we needed and figured out how to have fun anyway,” owner Vonda White said.
The bottom line: “Kids are itching for that independence and that opportunity to go to camp and parents are itching for their children to have the opportunity as well,” Rosenberg said.
- “But it’s going to require everyone working together to follow these [guidelines].”

- Week 4: Around the World. Around the World Week will offer a chance for students to traverse the world beyond our US borders: Students will learn about different countries by studying their culture, government, and cuisine.
- Week 5: Stem Exploration. Do you enjoy finding creative solutions to everyday problems? Come to our STEM Week at camp to explore how science, technology, engineering, and math can be used to invent creative solutions to everyday problems.
- Week 6: Blast to the Past. Join us as we travel back in time; each day of the camp will focus on a period in history to enrich each camper’s understanding of our past and how it influences our present.
- Week 7: Olympics: Team USA. The Summer Olympics happens only once every 4 years! Celebrate with us as we cheer on the Olympic teams and host our very own Olympic events, culminating in a final awards ceremony at the end of the week.
- Week 8: Fine Arts and Performance. Expand your artistic horizons as you learn more about the arts through theater and drama activities, as well as complete meaningful painting and drawing projects to cherish for a lifetime.

COVID-19 InformationNEW! Please review Summer 2021 COVID-19 Safety Protocols and Procedures. Welcome Back, Summer! It’s time to Camp!
We’re excited that camp is back in 2021 at each of your United Methodist campsites across the Dakotas and Minnesota. Summer is better with camp! We’ve missed you and we can’t wait to see soon!
Registration is open and information on all 2021 events is available on this website. However, space is extremely limited and many events are now full due to COVID-19 safety guidance that requires reduced capacity. If an event is full, you will be placed on a waitlist. But don’t give up! You will be notified no later than 3-weeks prior to the start of your event if you are moved from a waitlist onto the event roster. Please let our central office camp staff know as soon as possible if you decide to register for a different event and no longer wish to remain on the waitlist.
As always, the safety and well-being of our campers, staff, and volunteers remains our top priority. Our Summer 2021 COVID-19 Safety Protocols and Procedures are based on the most current state, national, and industry guidance and are subject to change. Please know that we’ll continue to pay close attention to COVID-19 conditions and will update any modifications as needed and as soon as possible.
It’s important to stay connected with Dakotas and Minnesota Camping during this time. Information and updates will be shared regularly through social media, email, and website updates.
All campers and volunteers are required to complete the “Healthy Camper” survey prior to the start of camp. A link to the online survey will be emailed to you four weeks prior to the start of your camping event. Be sure to complete this survey as soon as possible and no later than three weeks prior to your arrival at camp. Planning for a safe and healthy time at camp starts at home. This survey helps our staff gain a better understanding of camper health and COVID-19 exposure and history. In addition, campers and volunteers will receive a reminder to start their 14-day period of being extra careful about limiting possible exposure to COVID-19 (applies to unvaccinated campers and volunteers only).

Camp MN to welcome campers this summer with extra safety protocols
“Summer is better with camp,” says Keith Shew, the director for Dakotas-Minnesota Camp and Retreat Ministries. “We’ve missed you, and we can’t wait to see you this year at Northern Pines Camp, Koronis Ministries, and Kowakan Adventures!”
The Dakotas-Minnesota Camp and Retreat Ministry team is ready for you to return to camp this summer and preparing to keep campers safe while giving them an opportunity to experience Christ, creation, and community.
“We’re excited to let you know we decided to move forward with plans for summer 2021 at each of our Dakotas camps!” said Shew. “Your Dakotas and Minnesota Area camp staff have been actively planning programming options with the hope of being able to offer safe and impactful camp ministry experiences in 2021.”
Safety is top priority
Each camp will strictly adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols that meet guidelines set by each state as well as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For now, the safety precautions include requiring masks and social distancing in common areas, limiting space in individual bedrooms to family groups, minimal to no contact with other onsite groups or staff, reducing group sizes as needed, and maximizing time outdoors when possible. Adjustments will be made as necessary to safety protocols, following state health guidelines and the American Camp Association protocols.
Northern Pines Camp Director Leslie Hobson added that most meals will be eaten outdoors (as weather permits) and noted that most cabins and treehouses are designed for space between bunks; windows are open most of the time.
Registration for the 2021 camping season will open Jan. 19, 2021 on the Camp Minnesota website. Registration and all information for the 2021 camping season will be digital. The early bird incentive, bring-a-friend discount, and camperships are all still available.
“Space may be limited this season, so sign up soon!” Shew said. “With the potential for changes to schedules and events leading up to summer due to the coronavirus pandemic, your camping team chose to forgo the traditional printed camp brochure this year. “Instead, we will have all camp listings and registration information on the Minnesota United Methodist Camps website where details can be updated quickly, and changes made in real-time. This ensures you will always have the most up-to-date information.”
All registered campers will receive updates as conditions change and new information becomes available that may impact the 2021 camping season.
“You will be informed, well in advance of your time at camp, of any pre-camp requirements, changes to the schedule, and safety protocols that will be in effect during your time at camp,” said Shew. “We know that it is a tough time for many of our families and want to remind folks of our campership program. We would love to help your family attend camp.”
What’s new and exciting?
Northern Pines in Park Rapids plans to introduce pickleball to camp this year, said Hobson. Pickleball is a popular paddleball sport that combines elements of badminton, table tennis, and tennis.
Additionally, a “Comfort Cottage” will be available to clergy for time apart. Comfort Cottage sits on 44 acres of land that the Minnesota Conference purchased in October—land that more than doubles the camp’s size. Hobson said many clergy appreciated the opportunity to get away to Northern Pines alone or with their families last summer, and this new space will provide another place for them to do that.
The newly acquired property will also be used for nature activities including plant and tree identification and the building of fairy houses, personal shelters, and nature sculptures.
Meanwhile, Koronis Ministries in Paynesville is excited to debut some new features at its waterfront—including a waterslide and a huge aquatic inflatable to climb called “the rock,” said Ziegler.
Both camps will continue to offer all of the timeless activities campers love in safe and socially distanced ways—swimming, archery, boating, campfires, and group games.
Hobson and Ziegler can’t wait for the camps to be filled with sounds of campers. “We’re a small camp, a family really, and we grow very close to these kids each year,” said Ziegler. “We care deeply about their spiritual and social growth.”
Hobson echoed that sentiment. “One of my favorite sounds is hearing campers singing around the nighttime fire during snack time,” she said. “I look forward to hearing the laughter and the voices rising from the woods by the treehouses or from the playing field area during the evening… I cannot wait to greet them and welcome them back.”

Kirill Whims, National Hockey League (NHL), Minnesota Wild00:43 22.09.2021 (updated: 00:44 09.22.2021)
Minnesota did not include Kaprizov in the list of participants in the training camp
MOSCOW, September 22 – RIA Novosti. Russian forward Kirill Kaprizov is not included in the list of players to participate in the Minnesota Wild training camp, according to the website of the NHL club.
Minnesota Training Camp kicks off September 23rd in St. Paul.
Earlier in the media it was reported that Kaprizov, who is a restricted free agent, turned down two offers from Minnesota for a contract for seven and eight years with a salary of about $ 9 million per year, because he wants to conclude an agreement with the club for a shorter period.
Caprice made his NHL debut last season and won the Calder Trophy Rookie Award. The Russian played 55 matches in the NHL regular season and scored 51 points (27 goals and 24 assists), in the playoffs the 24-year-old striker recorded three points (2 + 1) in seven games.September 20, 07:33 Ice Hockey The Minnesota General Manager spoke about the situation with the Kaprizov contract.
Kirill Kaprizov will not be able to arrive on time at the Minnesota training camp – September 18, 2021
“Midnight is approaching, but Herman is still gone.”A training camp for beginners has started in Minnesota, and experienced players are already training hard on their own and are waiting for the opening of the main training camp. It will start without Kirill Kaprizov, who will miss at least the first few days of the training camp – now we can talk about this quite definitely. The Russian has no contract, and judging by the absence of even rumors, the negotiations are simply frozen.
Visa + quarantine = late
The fact that Kaprizov will not be in time for the start of the training camp, even if he signs a contract right now, became clear at the end of this week.Officially, all Minnesota hockey players are due to arrive at the training camp next Wednesday, September 22, and training will start the next day.
Without a signed contract, it is impossible to obtain a work visa in the United States, which takes at least a few days. Plus, it will be necessary to serve a 7-day compulsory quarantine, so Kirill will arrive at the Wilde location late anyway. However, now we are simply not talking about getting there as soon as possible. Protracted negotiations have reached an impasse, and although a minimum of emotional statements by the Minnesota leadership gets into the public space, the irritation of general manager Bill Gerin is understandable.
The start of the season can be critical for mid-table teams like Minnesota. A bad start will contribute to additional hassle, the need to speed up training and, possibly, personnel changes – it is always very difficult to catch up in the NHL. And to have a good start in the regular season, playing without your best striker is a very difficult task. Moreover, specifically for the signing of Kaprizov, the payroll was cleared and people such as Zach Parise and Ryan Suter were bought out.
Nylander waited until the last moment and failed the season
“I know from my own experience that when you fail the training camp, you can almost never count on a good season. This is a pattern ”, – said Guerin a few days ago, when the likelihood of Kaprizov not arriving at the training camp began to increase. The general manager of Wild himself was a very famous power forward in the past, won the Stanley Cup, so he is not saying this for a word of mouth. Of course, Cyril, as a real professional, brings himself into shape on his own, but such things as the adaptation of the body after the flight and the restoration of the team “chemistry” cannot work out instantly.
“Despite the obvious differences, it reminds me of the situation with William Nylander and Toronto. The Swede holds the record for the longest negotiation period in an era of wage caps. Despite the fact that “Minnesota” and the Whims have been negotiating for a long time, rapprochement is not planned. Time is pressing on both sides. At the moment, this is all a game of chicken. ”, – said the author of The Hockey Writers Jeff Middleton .
Playing chicken is English fun.The point of this game is to see who gets scared first, and in this case, this idiom is the best fit to characterize the situation. As for Nylander, the Swede did bargain with Maple Leafs for a very long time: in 2018 he signed a contract only on December 1. But he insisted on his own, knocking out very decent money – a contract for 5 years at an average of $ 7.5 million per season, and 21 million was paid in the first two years.
Another thing is that the season that Nylander had after signing the contract was absolutely the worst for the Swede, if we count the full championships.He received the money, but in order to work it off, problems arose: only 7 goals and 20 assists in 54 matches, which caused huge criticism from the demanding Toronto fans. A year later, however, everything fell into place (59 points in 68 matches), but the scoffing at Nylander was still decent, and some fans still very much dislike this striker.
Judging by the decisiveness with which Kaprizov’s agent and the striker himself are ready to fight for a new contract, Kirill’s headquarters will demand that Minnesota fulfill the player’s demands to the last.Now the interim deadline in the Kaprizov case will be October 4, when the Savages will play the opening match of the regular season against Colorado, and the final – December 1, when the contract is to be signed by 5 pm East Coast time. Otherwise, Kirill will not be able to play in the NHL this season.
Minnesota extended the contract with Kaprizov for five years for $ 45 million – RT in Russian
Minnesota Wild has extended the agreement with Russian striker Kirill Kaprizov for five years.Under the new contract, the 24-year-old striker will receive $ 9 million a year and will become the club’s highest-paid player, although before that he spent only one season in the National Hockey League. The forward himself admitted that he was glad to resume training with partners, and promised to concentrate as much as possible on performing for the team. In turn, Minnesota general manager Bill Guerin expressed satisfaction with the outcome of the negotiations and the return of the star striker to the squad before the start of training camp.
The best rookie of the National Hockey League in the 2020/21 season Kirill Kaprizov still remains in North America.After lengthy and difficult negotiations, he agreed with the Minnesota Wild club to extend the agreement on favorable terms. According to the club’s press service, the new contract is for five years, during which the Russian will earn a total of $ 45 million.
Thus, Kaprizov became the highest paid hockey player in his franchise and the seventh among Russians playing in the NHL. Only forwards Artemy Panarin, Alexander Ovechkin, Evgeny Malkin and Nikita Kucherov, as well as goalkeepers Sergei Bobrovsky and Andrei Vasilevsky, receive more than this per year.
According to journalist Frank Serevali, the agreement does not contain any signature bonus – a part of the salary paid to the hockey player even before the start of the season. However, according to one of the points, Kaprizov cannot be exchanged for another club without his consent in the last two years of the contract.
It is noteworthy that Karpizov signed a new contract right before the start of the Minnesota training camp, although he was absent from the list of training camp participants the day before.The general manager of the club, Bill Guerin, just a couple of days earlier, expressed his disappointment at the lack of a result in negotiations with the Russian and said that the team would focus on the players present in the camp. However, it is now expected that the forward, together with his partners, will begin training on September 23, the day of the official start of the training camp.
Meanwhile, the striker himself has already flown to Minneapolis and gave his first interview in a new status. According to Cyril, he is very happy, and the deal itself is beneficial both for him and for the team from St. Paul.

The Moscow children’s ice hockey Cup match between the teams born in 2011 “Spartak Sporttech” and “Varlamov Academy” was overshadowed …
“From now on I just want to play hockey with my teammates. I spoke with many of them today, all congratulated me.Now I will try to focus on the game and win. Everyone is happy, this is a pleasant feeling, “the Minnesota website quotes Kaprizov as saying.
In turn, Guerin did not hide his joy from the extension of the agreement with the rising star. In his opinion, this is a great day for the club and for the 24-year-old striker himself. The general manager of Minnesota Wild noted that now the team looks only to the future.
“We had a lot of time to talk and discuss a number of things. What really does not give in to doubt – the guy just wants to play hockey and is very happy to return.We are happier than ever … He returned to the squad before the start of the training camp, everything is fine. As we expected, the process was long, but the negotiations ended successfully, ”Guerin said.
At home, they reacted with enthusiasm to the long-awaited extension of the agreement between Kaprizov and Minnesota. Former CSKA mentor Igor Nikitin, who worked with the hockey player from 2017 to 2020, noted that he almost immediately congratulated the former ward and wished him to win the Stanley Cup with the club.
“I think Kirill was focused on his dream: to play in the NHL.It was a systematic contract work. Everyone did their job. This is normal, “- quotes Nikitin” Sport-Express “.
The first forward coach Andrey Luchansky was also pleased with the news about Kaprizov and expressed the opinion that the most important thing in a player’s stay in Minnesota is the club’s trust.
“Apparently, the agent advised me to sign a contract in the end. For some reason, they delayed signing, which means they put forward their own conditions. I hope he will prove everything with his work and the current situation will not affect the attitude towards him in the team, ”Luchansky said.
Commentator Sergei Gimaev Jr. considers the current deal to be a kind of victory for Kirill and his agent. In his opinion, the athlete will benefit from five seasons at St. Paul.
“Then Kaprizov will have time to sign a long-term contract for even more money with one of the teams fighting for the Stanley Cup. The whims should not stop progressing. They say that the second season in the NHL is the most difficult for the players, however, knowing Kirill and his diligence, I can say that this should not happen to him, ”Gimaev quotes the Championship.

The logo of the 2023 World Ice Hockey Championship was presented in St. Petersburg. The design was inspired by the work of the artist …
Former coach of the Russian national team Vladimir Plyushchev called the extension of the agreement with Wild an excellent ground for Kaprizov’s progress.Especially considering the fact that he has already fallen in love with the local fans and has become a real team leader.
“There are always certain moments when the player can be offered another contract, to redeem the current one. Since Kaprizov signed, it means that everything suits him. Probably, Kirill consulted with his agents, his family … It is better to be a leader in this team than to polish a shop somewhere else … Whims preferred to play, “the specialist emphasized.
The 1988 Olympic champion Valery Kamensky, who drew attention to the decent performance of Minnesota last season, adheres to the same position – the team from St. Paul made it to the playoffs from third place in the Western Division, although they lost in the first round …Nevertheless, according to the expert, there is no need to wonder whether the club will be able to compete for the Stanley Cup together with Capricious.
“He is a very talented and young guy, he has a whole career ahead of him. I hope he will be able to please us with his good game, beautiful pucks and will play even better, and after the expiration of a five-year contract, he will sign a new agreement for an even greater amount, “Kamensky suggested.
In his debut season, Caprice played 55 games in the NHL regular season and recorded 27 goals and 24 assists.In the playoffs, the Russian’s performance was more modest – in seven meetings he scored twice and only in one case assisted a partner.

Whims as the main star of Minnesota, Romanov is already a favorite of Canadians – 01/10/2021
The new season in the NHL starts in three days. It’s time to start talking about those Russians who should be closely watched in the regular season. This year, 11 newcomers from Russia can play in the best league in the world, more precisely nine, since two have already played there. We are talking about those who were not afraid of the pandemic and still went overseas at the end of last season.
h. Nikita Nesterov (Calgary)
Last winter CSKA offered the defender a solid five-year contract, then the sides shook hands, but after a few months the player changed his mind. CSKA once again made an offer, but Nesterov also rejected it with the motivation “I want to return to the NHL”. Only at the end of October did Nikita manage to sign an agreement, which was quite modest – with Calgary for one year and $ 700 thousand. In the training camp, the Flames make a good impression, presumably starting the season with the sixth defender.
n. Mikhail Grigorenko (Columbus)
Like Nesterov, this is not the first time Mikhail has gone to the NHL. Over the three years at CSKA, Grigorenko has improved significantly and is now ready to achieve more in the best league in the world. In Columbus, the Russian forward is playing enough in the top-6, at the last training he left with Dubois and Bjorkstrand, before that he played with Jenner and Koivu. Tortorella also sees Grigorenko in one of the special brigades of the majority.
n. Grigory Denisenko (Florida)
Panthers General Manager Bill Zito has already noted the hard work of the Russian rookie, who is ready to train around the clock to get into the NHL.However, it is not a fact that Gregory will succeed right away. In the training camp, Denisenko most often goes out with Achchiari and Hinostroza, nominally this is the fourth link. But it is not a fact that in the end it is the 20-year-old Russian who will win the competition from other players for this place.
n. Kirill Kaprizov (Minnesota)
The main hope and the Wild star. It is in this status that Whims is finally moving to the NHL. In camp, he trains in the first link with Bugstad and Parise and already amazes fans with his ice feints.The Athletic publication believes in Cyril so much that it put him in third place (after Lafreniere and Shesterkin) in the list of contenders for the Calder Trophy.
h. Alexander Romanov (Montreal)
In Canada, they don’t get enough of a 21-year-old defender. Canadiens head coach Claude Julien says that Romanov is adapting well to the team, he is confident and will make mistakes, like everything else, but the player is passionate about fixing them as soon as possible. Bilyaletdinov’s grandson is the first to come to training and the last to leave.Most likely, Alexander will start the season in the NHL, in the training camp he plays enough in the third pair with Kulak.
h. Artem Zub (“Ottawa”)
Many were skeptical about Zub’s decision to try his hand overseas. After all, it is far from a fact that if you are a good defender by KHL standards, then you will succeed in North America. Artem did not listen to anyone and signed a contract with one of the outsiders of the last season. However, even the 25-year-old defender will have a hard time getting into the Senators.The tooth will fight with several competitors for a place in the third pair.
n. Yegor Sokolov (Ottawa)
The 20-year-old striker was unexpectedly selected by Ottawa in the third round of the draft this year. A month later, Yegor signed a rookie contract with the NHL club and was invited to a training camp. In a two-sided match, Sokolov came out in the fourth triple of one of the teams. If he ultimately remains in the top team, then it will be a huge success for him.
n.Alexander Barabanov (Toronto)
The Russian novice is regarded as a player in the checker team. In the camp he plays with the veterans Spezza and Simmonds. Barabanov’s strong quality is that he can play equally effectively both in attack and in defense. Alexander does not yet stand out from the rest, but attracts with his desire and energy. He should start the season at the fourth link.
n. Andrei Altybarmakyan (Chicago)
Unlike most young players, Andrei did not play on loan in Europe or Russia in the fall.Altybarmakyan independently prepared for the season in St. Petersburg and flew to Chicago at the end of December. In training, the 22-year-old striker most often comes out in the fourth link, in one of the two-sided he remained in reserve. It will be a big surprise if it is left at the base right away.
c. Ilya Sorokin (Islanders)
Another contender for Calder, who received positive reviews from the training camp. However, the Islanders have two other good goalkeepers: Varlamov and Schneider.So, most likely, Ilya will start the season in the AHL, and in case of a successful performance, he will be called to the base.
c. Alexey Melnichuk (San Jose)
Melnichuk had the opportunity to stay until the end of the season at Torpedo, but the goalkeeper wanted to try to break into the NHL club. In San Jose it will be difficult for him to compete with the two goalkeepers Dubnik and Jones. For the role of the third goalkeeper, Alexei has one competitor – 22-year-old Czech Josef Korenarzh, who has already played in the AHL.It will be difficult for Melnychuk to get around a more experienced partner.

90,000 It seems Kaprizov will have to carry the Minnesota attack on his own.But there is good defense and there are even chances for the playoffs – Hockey news
What the rookie season will be like.
They waited for Kirill Kaprizov in the USA for an incredibly long time. Once upon a time it seemed to everyone that Yevgeny Kuznetsov had sat out in the KHL (if you remember, in the season before leaving, he was injured and flew past the Olympics) – and after all, four years had passed from the moment of the draft to the game overseas. The whims dragged on even longer – his debut in the NHL in five and a half years.
The very expectation of the player was the reason for the news. The owner of Minnesota, Craig Lipold, sent letters to Moscow with a gilded logo that looked more like wedding invitations. In broken Russian, Lipold called Kaprizov to the city of “St. Paul” with the hope that “you will live and play hockey here for many years.”
But Kaprizov was already good in the 2014/15 season: he was not yet 18, but he already scored in the KHL for New Kuznets (if you use the Minnesota dialect of Russian) – for example, Salavat.At the same time, even at the time of HD-video, scouts appreciated him only for the fifth round – Kirill was chosen between Matt Schmalts and Pavel Karnaukhov. But in five years, the No. 135 draft has become almost a new hope.
Where Caprice goes: trouble with almost everything, but worthy protection
A year ago I published the text “The future team of Kaprizov is just a nightmare. But in the summer he should go there “with a brief overview of how the team from St. Paul falls down. Paul Fenton, the former general manager of Minnesota, received the most attention, having adjusted the exchanges, placed semi-submissive people in the system, and at the height of the season went to rest in the south.
Bill Guerin, who worked in the Pittsburgh system, was called to pull the organization out of the swamp. But he only continued strange trades: only recently received 23-year-old Ryan Donato was exchanged for a draft pick, and 22-year-old Luke Canin was exchanged with a makeweight for Nick Bonino, who is 9 years older.
The culmination of the destructive activity was the exchange of Eric Staal. The 33-year-old center entered the Triple Golden Club 10 years ago, won everything and planned to calmly end hockey – a house in Minnesota was very close.When he was sent to Buffalo, Staal was so furious that he almost gave up the trip to the new club. If the Sabers’ gemanager hadn’t been his friend from the championship Carolina, Kevin Adams, he probably wouldn’t have gone. For 33-year-old Staal, Minnesota received 30-year-old Markus Johansson, who was introduced to the public as a center. Needless to say that in his career in this position he did not play very often and went to the flank again in the new club?
As a result, Nick Bugstad became the first Wilde center.Due to injuries, the two-meter forward of Pittsburgh missed almost the entire last season and went to Minnesota practically for free (the conditional peak of the seventh round of the draft). Before the season, he was planned in a link with Kaprizov, and on the other flank – Parise. In this combination, they entered the first match, but in the course of Bugsted was replaced by Victor Rask. The coaching staff will certainly give these three more chances, but Nick will not play the game in it.
Four years ago, Minnesota had the Koivu-Staal-Haula axis of centers with the second attack in the league.The stormy activity of managers turned it into Bugstad – Bonino – Ericsson Eck. The desire to get away from mediocrity was again replaced by the desire to somehow get into the playoffs, but the squad only got worse.
Protection, however, does not apply. Yes, perhaps, the “Savages” overpaid their defencists, but they still have Ryan Suter in their roster, who is capable of playing 25 minutes per match even at the age of 35 and closing the league’s superstars, the quality couch potato Brudin, and also the political activist Matt Damba. sometimes playing hockey.
True, every year Minnesota conceded more and more, and in the end they made the goalkeeper guilty – Devan Dubnik was replaced by Cam Talbot, who also did not get better over the years, but four years ago he dragged Edmonton into the playoffs. “Wild” sets such a task for itself – and for the sake of this strange desire the club will do everything.
Training Camp: Easy Adaptation & Super Goal
Back in the summer, partners in the future team began to write to Kaprizov.“He is embarrassed about his English, but I told him,“ Your business is doing much better than it could be for me. Don’t think you can’t talk. ” Hopefully he feels more comfortable knowing that he can ask me about the city and the organization before he arrives, ”said defense attorney Jared Spurgeon.
It so happened that in the “Forge” Whims played with two former hockey players of the University of Minnesota – Caid Fairchild and Ryan Stowe. The first praised Kirill to the local newspaper Star Tribune: “His hockey IQ is incredible.He’s one of those guys who always gets the puck in the right place. The first time it seems like it’s just a good bounce, but then it happens all the time. He is incredibly technical, but he always comes back to the defense and gives all the best on both sides of the court. ”
Last December, Bill Guerin flew to Moscow and said: “I’m sure that because of our management reshuffle, he was thinking, ‘What the hell is going on here?’ I explained to him that we are going in the right direction. “The general manager believes that this helped him make the choice in favor of leaving for the NHL.
At the same time, Kirill’s adaptation should be facilitated by the fact that he knows English normally. The same Spurgeon says: “He has good English, although sometimes he cannot always find the word, although he knows it for sure in Russian. Nevertheless, he can keep the conversation going. ” While his interpreter is the son of the famous hockey player Igor Kravchuk – Ilya.
In the training camp, Kirill immediately got into the top three and had already managed to fold several jaws of the spectators who saw his puck during the club’s two-sided game.Local journalists have already given him a nickname – KIrill the Thrill, which hardly requires translation.
In general, Whims charges everyone with positive. He watched the disastrous MFM-2021 semifinals at the house of Matt Damba, who posted a story with a disgruntled Caprice during the game. “During the lost final, I got a response, and I felt his feelings. But Kirill is a great guy, I like his energy, he is ready to break through the language barrier, not paying attention to what comes out of his mouth.It will be a pleasure to work with him, ”Damba told reporters later.
“If his career in the NHL turns out to be as exemplary as the Kakhaelov part, then it’s even scary to think what we’ll see from him in the first season,” wrote Nikita Petukhov at the end of his large material summarizing Kaprizov’s game in the KHL. And in fact: what can you expect from him?
According to pre-season polls, Caprice is still somewhere fourth in the list of contenders for Calder – Stüzle is quoted higher because of fresh sensations at the MFM, Lafrenier because of talent, and Shesterkin after an excellent streak in the second half of the last championship.
Cyril ended up in a state that lives by hockey, but at the same time does not press players the way it happens in the neighboring country of Minnesota. He will have a place in the first link and a lot of the majority.
