general director “San Jose” Mike Greer said Russian hockey players might not be allowed to enter Prague. His comments on Twitter are quoted by journalist Sheng Peng.
On September 22, the Czech Foreign Ministry announced that it would send a letter to the leaders NHL , which will declare the inadmissibility of issuing visas to Russian players to enter the country. By “Nashville” Yakov Trenin, Yaroslav Askarov, Yegor Afanasiev play, and Alexander Barabanov, Evgeny Svechnikov, Timur Ibragimov, Artemy Knyazev and Daniil Gushchin play in the San Jose system. The clubs will play in Prague on October 7 and 8.
“Either we all go or nobody goes,” Greer said, answering the question that the Czechs don’t want to let Russian hockey players in.
“I firmly believe that we are all here as one team. We are a group. It’s not the players fault. They did nothing wrong. So I don’t think they should be punished for that. We support them, we are all united here,” added Greer.
