MIRGALIYEV SCORES HIS FIRST HAT-TRICK IN HIS 100th GAME, ISAYEV AND SINKEVICH SHINE IN THEIR DEBUT

Despite a large number of goals scored on September 4th, the gameday also featured some stellar goaltending. In as many as five games out of 12 netminders earned a shutout, while Tolpar Ufa forward Ranis Mirgaliyev scored his first Junior Hockey League hat-trick.

Tolpar enjoyed a solid win over Sputnik Almetyevsk and Ranis Mirgaliyev scored the lion’s share of goals. Mirgaliyev is in his third JHL season and that was his first hat-trick. Notably, that was his 100th career JHL game. What a way to celebrate it!

There were also several great performances by rookie goaltenders that day. Taifun netminder Yan Sinkevich faced no other but arch-rivals Amurskie Tigry in his debut game. The 17-year-old did more than just alright in the rivalry game as he stopped 34 shots, earning his first career JHL shutout.

Another 17-year-old goaltender Daniil Isayev blanked the reigning Kharlamov Cup champions themselves – Krasnaya Armiya Moscow. JHL rookie stopped 28 shots, while Loko Yaroslavl swept ‘the army men’ in back-to-back series, this time edging them 1-0.

Three more goaltenders registered shutouts. While Nikita Maslennikov had to face meagre 12 shots in the game against Chayka Nizhny Novgorod, Snezhnye Barsy’s Denis Karatayev had to stand on his head dealing with Stalnye Lisy. He ended the night with 39 saves, leading Astana to a 2-0 win in Magnitogorsk. HK Riga’s Janis Voris also had a lot of work to do. Greatly thanks to his service, Latvian team went on to beat Russkie Vityazi in Chekhov, Moscow Region. Voris stopped 32 shots and Riga enjoyed a 2-0 win as well.

Daniil Lapin scored twice to help Sibirskie Snaipery take down Irbis, Daniil Shabarov netted two as well in the game against Atlanty, while Dinamo St. Petersburg went on to beat Chayka on home ice as Kirill Andreyev and Maxim Mikhailov scored a pair each.
