Fedotenko finds himself in Ukraine again
“I have not visited Ukraine since 2004,” confessed 33-year-old HC Donbass new signing.
“Ukraine is my Motherland, Kiev is my native city, but I’m very interested in visit to industrial Donetsk, where I have never been before. I want to play here and help new team in it’s the very first KHL season. I’ve got a chance to keep my shape till the lockout ends and play hockey in the best continental league representing Ukraine and the only Ukrainian club. I am happy about that. I need to talk to coach and adjust to European play-field that bigger than in the NHL. It is not such a big problem," Ruslan added.
Fedotenko visits Arena Druzhba immediately after arrival. He has found there his personal dressing box ready and next to… Ponokarovsky’s locker - another HC Donbass ex-NHL player who had flown Donetsk yesterday.
