The Army Men roster was changed for the camp. First of all because the Russian Nationa Team players Vitaly Fridzon, Nikita Kurbanov and Andrey Vorontsevich joined the team. At the same time the number of juniors was decreased. The coaching staff took just three CSKA-2 players to Turkey – Alexander Burov, Alexander Gavrilov and Mikhail Maleyko. Joel Freeland and Victor Khryapa who continue their rehab after injuries are with the team hoping to get back to practices soon.

“I said that to the team after the practice on Tuesday and I’d like to repeat: we thank the guys from our second team for their hard work and dedication,” CSKA head coach Dimitris Itoudis. – “I would like to say thank you to Alexander Kurbatov, Artem Vostrikov, Evgeny Yudin and Kirill Zakharov. And to wish good luck specifically to Alexander Gankevich who will play in Ural this season but worked with us during this camp. We are paying big attention to all our young players and the whole junior project in all ages. I hope and I count that many of the guys will be able to strengthen our main team soon.”

CSKA will get back to Moscow on September 28.
