Nikita Nesterov (pictured) continues his impressive run for Chelyabinsk, going +1 in 21:23 of ice time in Chelyabinsk's 5-3 win over Riga. Nesterov led all Chelyabinsk defenders in ice time, and he was not on the ice for a single Riga goal. Ex-Lightning forward Paul Szczechura had an assist in defeat for Riga.

Andrei Vasilevski got the call to join the big club and sat backup today as Ufa fell to Novokuznetsk 4-3. Ex-NHLer Brett Sopel had 1 goal and 1 assist in the win for Novokuznetsk. If that's what it takes to get Vasilevski a little rest, so be it. Coincidentally, Vasilevski's fill-in for Ufa's junior side got a shutout in their 4-0 win over Novosibirsk. #SeeAlexSemakThatWasntSoBadWasIt?

Andrei Vasilevski and Ufa. Jr. got swept by Omsk Jr. by virtue of Baby Avanagard's 3-2 overtime win. Vasilevski has now started all 19 of Ufa Jr.'s games. Last season, the netminder only saw action in 27 games for Ufa Jr. all year. So, we're not even 2 months into the schedule and Vasilevski's already met 2/3 of his workload from last year. If I were the Bolt Prospects Twitter administrator, I might tweet #ThingsAlexSemakShouldKeepInMind.

Boom goes the stay-at-home dynamite! Nikita Nesterov (pictured) was +3 in a season high 18:35 of ice time in Chelyabinsk's 6-3 win over Novgorod. Ex-Lightning draft pick Ruslan Zainullin had a goal for Torpedo in defeat. Chelyabinsk is off until Sunday when they face Spartak Moscow.

Cherepovets 6 vs. Bratislava 0
Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Win, SO, 18/18, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%

Jaroslav Janus, Bratislava, Loss, 33/39, 6.00 GAA, .846 sv%
Season totals: 16 GP, 9-5-2, 2 SO, 2.37 GAA, .923 sv%

Oof! In a battle between old school and new school Lightning goaltending prospects, Vasily Koshechkin taught the new blood a serious lesson. The big veteran netminder logged an 18 save shutout in Cherepovets' 6-0 spanking of Bratislava. Ex-Lightning draft pick Denis Kazionov continued his quest to get back on Bolt Prospects' daily updates by scoring his 5th and 6th goals of the season, both on the power play, for Severstal. They face Omsk next on Saturday. Slovan will lick their wounds in preparation for CSKA next Tuesday.

VHL (Russia 2)
Chelyabinsk2 3 vs. Tver 1
Nikita Gusev, Tver, 1-0-1, -2, 0 PIM, 8 SOG
Season totals (VHL): 10 GP, 5-5-10, -3, 2 PIM

MHL (Russia Jr.)
Ufa Jr. 2 vs. Omsk Jr. 6
Andrei Vasilevski, Ufa Jr., Loss, 17/21, 6.00 GAA, .810 sv%
Season totals: 18 GP, 14-4-0, 1 SO, 1.92 GAA, .930 sv%

Andrei Vasilevski continued the theme of a poor day for young Lightning goaltending prospects after he was pulled after 2 periods in Ufa Jr.'s 6-2 loss to Omsk Jr. I ask the question again: does the young man need a rest after having started every game of the season thus far for Ufa Jr? I'm looking at you, ex-Lightning forward and current Ufa Jr. coach, Alexander Semak. These two teams rematch on Thursday.

MHL Game Day: 10-12-12

MHL (Russia Jr.)
Khanty-Mansiysk Jr. 4 vs. Ufa Jr. 5
Andrei Vasilevski, Ufa Jr., Shootout Win, 27/31, 3.69 GAA, .871 sv%
Season totals: 18 GP, 15-3-0, 1 SO, 1.92 GAA, .930 sv%

Andrei Vasilevski turned away both shooters he faced in the penalty shot session to help stake Ufa Jr. to a 5-4 win over Khanty-Mansiysk Jr. Vasilevski remains unbeaten after regulation with 3 wins in the shootout. Despite the victory, though, Vasilevski's save percentage continues to erode from its stratospheric heights of the early season. One wonders if the 18 year old netminder, who has started all 18 of Ufa Jr.'s games, may have some fatigue setting in. Ufa Jr. plays Omsk Jr. next on Wednesday.

European Game Day: 10-11-12

Elitserien (Sweden)
Brynas 3 vs. Skelleftea 2

Jaroslav Janus turned away all three attempts he faced in the penalty shot session, including one by Oilers first rounder Nail Yakupov, to lead Bratislava to a 5-4 win over Nizhnekamsk. The young Russian did manage 1 goal and 1 assist in regulation though. The victory is Janus' third after regulation this season. Slava gets Ufa on Saturday.

KHL (Russia)
Donetsk 4 vs. Cherepovets 1
Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, Loss, 33/37, 4.00 GAA, .892 sv%

Season totals (VHL): 7 GP, 2-5-7, -2 2 PIM
Season totals (KHL): 6 GP, 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM

Nikita Gusev (pictured) had an even strength goal and a power play assist in 16:36 of ice time in Tver's 5-3 win over Kurgan. The multi-point effort puts Gusev at a point a game pace in Russia's second best men's league. Tver draws Karaganda next on Saturday.

MHL (Russia Jr.)
Tyumen Jr. 3 vs. Ufa Jr. 4 (SO)
Andrei Vasilevski, Ufa Jr., Shootout Win, 25/28, 2.77 GAA, .893 sv%

Andrei Vasilevski turned away 4 of 5 shooters in the penalty shot session to lead Ufa Jr. to a 4-3 shootout win over Tyumen Jr. The victory is Vasilevski's second shootout win this year in two tries. A Lightning goaltender that's good in shootouts? Be still, my beating heart. Ufa Jr. faces Khanty-Mansiysk Jr. on Thursday.

Nikita Nesterov took a roughing minor that led to the game winning power play goal in 11:39 of ice time in Chelyabinsk's 2-1 loss to Novosibirsk. Assisting on the winner? Former Lightning defenseman Kristian Kudroc. Chelyabinsk faces Mytischi on Saturday.

MHL (Russia Jr.)
Tyumen Jr. 2 vs. Ufa Jr. 3
Andrei Vasilevski, Ufa Jr., Win, 37/39, 2.00 GAA, .949 sv%
Season totals: 15 GP, 13-2-0, 1 SO, 1.73 GAA, .938 sv%

Andrei Vasilevski (pictured) turned away 37 shots to lead Ufa Jr. to a 3-2 win over Tyumen Jr. That gives Vasilevski 12 regulation wins and 1 shootout victory this season. The two clubs rematch on Tuesday.

In other news, forward Nikita Gusev has been loaned by CSKA to Tver of the VHL. Through 6 games with Tver, Gusev has 1 goal and 5 points with a -3 rating and 2 penalty minutes. Tver plays Zaural Kurgan tomorrow. The VHL is the second highest mens league in Russia behind the KHL. Tver is CSKA's Vysshaya Hockey League affiliate.
