Pavel Buchnevich (3rd, 2013) saw his ice time slashed again, as his Severstal Cherepovets lost to Avangard Omsk in a shootout, 4-3. Buchnevich did not factor in the scoring, and played just 11:30 of ice time. That is down from his 14 minutes last game and 17 minutes in the Severstal season opener. It is worth noting that Buchnevich has averaged a little less than three SOG per game, so he is at least attempting to create offensive chances for a Severstal club that doesn’t figure to be that competitive this season.
Through three games, Buchnevich has zero points, a -3 rating, and 11 SOG.
