Zherdev Kicked From Practice - Update

Our troublemaking winger Nikolai Zherdev has been re-welcomed to practice and game time by Hitch. (Zherdev was booted from practice earlier this week)

Aaron Portzline details how Zherdev had a conversation with Hitch, then made up his missed practice by staying later on Tuesday. CBJ management no says that Zherdev "understands what is expected of him" now, and should not pose any more of a problem to the team.

Zherdev not only practiced, but played for 13 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Blues. (He put up a -2 rating.)

I also heard on the radio yesterday that despite the -2 +/- rating, Hitchcock said that if Nikolai played that way every night he'd be a first team All-Star.

I didn't see the game so I can't offer my opinion on that specifically, but it sounds like the message was received. Let's see if there's a backslide any time soon.
