The Russian Olympian wanted to play in America.  Will he be sent to jail for two years?

Goalie Ivan Fedotov Last year, after the final of the hockey games at the Winter Olympics, he became famous in the global media. He removed the silver pendant from his neckCouldn’t cope with his team’s defeat against Finland – and such behavior caused a lot of discussion in the community.

Now he has again attracted the attention of the world – but this story is very sad, because it can happen to a player – in the worst case – even in prison.

Fedotov found himself at the center of a very unpleasant mess, as reported by Russian media and and Radio Free Europe. In May, he signed a contract with the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers, which selected him in the draft a few years ago, to perform in the United States next season, which is a reality for most players. The dream came true.

Unfortunately, as you can see, with his decision, he fell under the skin of his comrades, because on July 1, the athlete was arrested on suspicion of escaping … the army. How did you come to that? Well, his current club, CSKA Moscow, is strongly associated with the military, and team members are considered military veterans by law. For this, Fedotov could face up to two years in prison – or be sent back to Ukraine.

However, this was not all, as the circumstances of his detention sparked further controversy – although it is very difficult to say what the goalkeeper’s legal status is now. The 25-year-old was taken from a St. Petersburg parking lot for an interview.

According to his lawyer, Fedotov had to receive previously unspecified injections – it was explained that their admission to the hockey player was prescribed by a doctor. So the whole situation “smells bad”.

Ivan Fedotov He first caught the attention of the Philadelphia Flyers in 2015, when the American team selected him with the 188th pick in the seventh round. However, he only played in his home country.

Russian authorities are yet to comment on the player’s health in their official opinion.
