In the spring we found out the Oilers wouldn’t re-sign prospect Slava Trukhno. Early summer came word that he’d signed back in Russia (Sibir Novosibirsk, KHL) but that didn’t work out.
Tonight we find out that the former Oilers prospect has a chance to catch on in Germany. According to the article (based on google translate and my own Dutch-to-German courtesy my childhood), Trukhno is on a tryout with Krefeld Penguins of the DEL.
Current Penguins include former NHLers Herbert Vasiljevs, Charlie Stephens, Pascal Trepanier and Scott Langkow.
This is Vasiljevs in what I believe to be the Penguins uniform.
