Nikita Nesterov, Chelyabinsk, 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 0 PIM
Season totals (KHL): 13 GP, 0-0-0, +3, 4 PIM

Nikita Nesterov (pictured) set a new season high in ice time with 21:31 in Chelyabinsk's 5-4 shootout win over Spartak. Nesterov finished second amongst Traktor d-men in ice time behind only veteran Vyacheslav Belov. Ex-NHler Stan Chistov scored with 32 seconds in regulation for Traktor just to give them a chance to make it to the shootout and get the win. Traktor plays Dynamo Riga on Tuesday.

Novokuznetsk 4 vs. Ufa 3
Andrei Vasilevski, Ufa, DNP
Season totals (KHL): 0 GP, 0-0-0, 0 SO, 0.00 GAA, 1.000 sv%
Season totals: 19 GP, 14-5-0, 1 SO, 1.98 GAA, .929 sv%

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?

MHL (Russia Jr.)
Ufa Jr. 2 vs. Omsk Jr. 3 (OT)
Andrei Vasilevski, Ufa Jr., OT Loss, 35/38, 2.91 GAA, .921 sv%
Season totals: 19 GP, 14-5-0, 1 SO, 1.98 GAA, .929 sv%

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.

Season totals: 14 GP, 5-2-7, +6, 6 PIM

Johan Harju has hit a cold spot, and was scoreless in Brynas' 5-1 loss to AIK. Brynas' backup, Robin Rahm, was between the pipes. Brynas faces MODO on Friday.

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%
Season totals: 16 GP, 7-8-1, 3 SO, 1.92 GAA, .935 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 (KHL): 6 GP, 0-1-1, -2, 0 PIM

Nikita Gusev scored Tver's only goal in their 3-1 loss to Chelyabinsk2. The forward played 18:25 in the match. Tver faces Minsk2 next Tuesday.

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

Brynas 3 vs. Skelleftea 2
Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 4 SOG

Johan Harju was scoreless in Brynas' 3-2 win over Skelleftea. Sebastien Enterfeldt scored the game winner for Brynas with 34 seconds left in the Third Period to seal the victory. Brynas draws Vaxjo Lakers next on Saturday.

KHL (Russia)
Nizhnekamsk 4 vs. Bratislava 5 (SO)
Jaroslav Janus, Bratislava, Win, 29/33, 3.74 GAA, .879 sv%
Season totals: 13 GP, 8-4-1, 2 SO, 2.18 GAA, .926 sv%

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.

MHL (Russia Jr.)
Khanty-Mansiysk Jr. 2 vs. Ufa Jr. 0
Andrei Vasilevski, Ufa Jr., Loss, 16/18, 2.00 GAA, .889 sv%
