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 its the very first KHL season. Ive 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 boxready and next to… Ponokarovskys locker-another HC Donbassex-NHL player who had flown Donetsk yesterday.
