► 1995 год. Гол Чибирева в ворота "Питтсбурга"

24 сентября 1993 года. 
Making the right moves Chibirev may have stomach for NHL Chibirev may become first Russian Whaler // Hartford Courant.

 Left wing Igor Chibirev made a strong impression on his new team after the first full day of practice Sept. 11.

He vomited.

Chibirev, the Whalers' 11th-round draft pick in June, showed up for camp out of shape after staying off skates for four months. That's no way to try to crack an NHL lineup, especially for a rookie, but Chibirev has been working his way back into condition ever since.

He's not quite there yet. But he is beginning to show the Whalers a glimpse of what he can do.

Chibirev had a goal and an assist in his first NHL game, a 3-2 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils in an exhibition game at the Target Center in Minneapolis Thursday.

Chibirev opened the scoring by skating down the right circle and cutting to the net, slipping the puck in from just in front of the crease.

A 5-foot-9, 170-pound left wing, Chibirev showed good speed and soft hands.

"He did some good things," coach and acting general manager Paul Holmgren said. "I like his skill level and his hands.

"He did some good things. He made a great move and scored a nice goal. He cut to the net a couple other times."

But Holmgren kept Chibirev on the bench in overtime.

"He didn't play in overtime because we didn't think he had the gas," Holmgren said.

Chibirev, 25, from Penza, Russia, had 33 goals and 36 assists in 60 games with Fort Wayne of the International Hockey League last season. In his first pro season after five years with the Red Army team in Russia, Chibirev helped Fort Wayne win the Turner Cup.

"I played the last game of the playoffs then stayed all summer in Fort Wayne," Chibirev said in broken English. "Four months, no skating. No ice."

That's why Chibirev was sick after the first day of camp. And probably why he will start the year in Springfield, not Hartford.

"I still think we have to wait and see how he is when he gets in shape," Holmgren said. "I don't think he's in very good shape.

"Right now he's going to start the year in Springfield and we'll see what happens. You can't get in shape in one training camp in hockey, not when everybody else has a head start on you."

If he plays well in Springfield, Chibirev could find his way back to Hartford before long. He would be the first Russian in a Whalers uniform.

"I very much want to play in the NHL," he said. "It's my dream."

Fan vacuum There is a push to bring the NHL back to Minnesota -- the North Stars moved to Dallas after last season -- there hasn't been much fan interest in the two neutral-site exhibition games there.

The Whalers-Devils game drew 7,591 at the Target Center, which seats a little over 17,000 for hockey. The Vancouver Canucks played the Winnipeg Jets Tuesday, drawing about 8,400. ... North Stars fans are still angry with owner Norm Green for moving the team to Dallas. With about six minutes left Thursday night, there were derisive chants throughout the arena. ... The Whalers will assign their first group of players to Springfield Saturday, although the team basically already has been split.

No call on Sidorkiewicz The NHL will hold off on a decision on New Jersey's grievance against Ottawa in the deal that brought former Whalers goalie Peter Sidorkiewicz to the Devils in the off-season.

Sidorkiewicz had off-season shoulder surgery and is not ready to play. The Devils, who sent forward Troy Mallette and goalie Craig Billington to Ottawa for Sidorkiewicz and forward Mike Peluso, say the Senators misrepresented the extent of rehabilitation needed by Sidorkiewicz.

The league will have an independent physician examine Sidorkiewicz periodically until he is ready to return, then decide what compensation is due New Jersey. Commissioner Gary Bettman has said none of the players will be returned to their former teams. 

6 апреля 1995 года. 

The Whalers had one heck of a game plan to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 8-4 Wednesday night.

They shot the puck at Wendell Young.

They shot it early. They shot it late. They shot it long. They shot it short. But mostly they just shot it at Wendell.

Sometimes Young, the Penguins' third-string goalie, stopped the puck. Sometimes Young played Swiss cheese and didn't stop anything.

Igor Chibirev, who didn't have a goal this season, led the way with his first career hat trick. Kevin Smyth, who didn't have a goal this season, also scored.

In all, 16 Whalers had at least a point, and Sean Burke made 30 saves.

To the Whalers' credit, this was a strong effort and big victory in their drive for a playoff berth. They worked hard. And in their second game in two nights and fifth in a row on the road they had 49 shots to finish the trip 2-2-1.

The Whalers (14-16-5) are tied for eighth place in the Eastern Conference with 33 points. The Rangers beat Florida, so they too have 33 points in 35 games.

But the truth was, Young was weak. And the rest of the Penguins responded with a poor effort. Defensemen Ulf (sore knees) and Kjell (stomach cramps) Samuelsson collided early in the game and eventually left the game. Without them, the Penguins were content to play matador defense. And the Whalers were content to bull past them all night. Jim McKenzie left with a wrist injury, but neither the former Whalers tough guy nor any of his teammates seemed intent on bullying anybody.

"We weren't in that one from the beginning of the game," Penguins coach Ed Johnston said. "Basically, they outplayed us in every department.

"I have no idea {why the Penguins allowed so many shots}. Here's a club that has played a lot and should be tired. But when you don't touch anyone or make any contact, something like this is going to happen. We let them off the hook all night. I don't know where our minds were."

With Tom Barrasso (wrist surgery) and Ken Wregget (ankle sprain) still unable to play, Young (2-5) was called on. He didn't answer.

The Penguins are 23-10-2, including 14-3- 1 at home. They had three days' rest and had won six in a row at Civic Arena. Young's teammates didn't answer, either.

The Penguins honored Syl Apps, who was enshrined in the team's Hall of Fame, before the game and the ceremony went on for 20 minutes. Sitting in the locker room was bad for the Whalers. Standing on the ice was worse for the Penguins.

"Nice win for us to end a road trip," Whalers coach Paul Holmgren said. "Now we go home for four straight. As a team we pass up a lot of chances to shoot the puck. Tonight we didn't. It was some good shooting. It was a little bit of luck.

"When we beat them in Hartford, we had Paul Ranheim shadow Jaromir Jagr. He did a great job. Tonight, we decided to play them straight up. If we didn't have the opportunity to forecheck, we weren't going to force it."

While the rest of the Whalers returned home late Wednesday, Chibirev remained to go to Montreal today to clear up some immigration problems.

He hadn't done much in his first couple of games since being called up from Fort Wayne of the International Hockey League. But Chibirev, who did have a two-goal game in Edmonton last season for the Whalers, caused plenty of problems for the Penguins.

"He's our secret weapon," Holmgren said. "He made some great one-on-one moves."

"Kelly Chase and Mark Janssens gave me a lot of room out there," Chibirev said. "It was good."

Said Chase: "Some guys had a little talk with Igor after last game. He's skilled and felt comfortable playing with big Mark Janssens. He can help us. He has skill. We need it after losing Robert Kron, who was so fast and strong along the wall."

Chase and Janssens battled behind the net to set up Chibirev's first goal. He blew around Chris Joseph before beating Young with a stoppable shot for his second goal. And after Andrei Nikolishin scored, Chibirev completed his hat trick at 8 minutes, 8 seconds of the second period when he stole the puck from Larry Murphy in the neutral zone before blowing away Grant Jennings and Tomas Sandstrom. Jennings was minus-4 for the night. The line of Chase, Janssens and Chibirev was plus-3.

The Penguins closed to 5-4 in the third period on goals by Jagr and Sandstrom, but Geoff Sanderson, Paul Ranheim and Smyth answered immediately to seal the victory. Jocelyn Lemieux, whose shoulder was much better Wednesday, was able to play and helped set up Ranheim's goal. Smyth, called up from Springfield, filled in for Steven Rice (slightly separated right shoulder after hitting Buffalo's Doug Bodger) on a line with Sanderson and Andrew Cassels.

"I think a big reason we played so well was because both Samuelssons went out and it opened the game for us," Sanderson said. "It made it easier for us to gain the zone. Our game plan was to shoot the puck. We played a neutral-zone trap. We tried to create turnovers and put the puck on net."
