Darcy Verot signs with Vityaz

Darcy Verot

Former Syracuse Crunch (AHL) winger Darcy Verot has signed to play with Vityaz Chekhov of the Russian Super League, according to an announcement posted earlier today by Sport Express as well as the player roster listing on the Vityaz web site.

Verot, a veteran of 37 NHL games with the Washington Capitals in '03-'04, has spent the past three seasons in the AHL, most recently with the Syracuse Crunch, the Columbus Blue Jackets' AHL affiliate. In 68 games for Syracuse last season, Verot posted 23 points (9g, 14a) and 227 penalty minutes.

The same Sport Express article announces that Vityaz has re-signed former NHL'ers Oleg Kvasha and Alexander Korolyuk.

Andrei Nazarov

In somewhat less exciting transaction news: in an interview with the Russian site Sport Daily, Traktor Chelyabinsk head coach Andrei Nazarov announced that the team had signed defenseman Nikita Korovokin, a former Philadelphia Flyers draft pick (6th round, '02) who split last season between the Phoenix Roadrunners and the Pensacola Ice Pilots of the ECHL.

If not a Traktor hat, then certainly John Deere or Cat Diesel.

We are all sorry to see Darcy Verot leave the U S to play in Russia. His style of hockey is intense and he is pleasure to watch on the ice. I think he will make an outstanding addition to his new team. Please post some updates on how he is doing, and I wish him all the best.
