Teammates admire `new' Yashin
By CHRIS STEVENSON -- Ottawa Sun
Alexei Yashin threw a party and everybody came.
The Senators' star centre threw a house-warming party to show
off his new penthouse digs and entertained his teammates and their significant
By all accounts, the party was a huge success, in more ways than
The get-together marked the first time Yashin had hosted a social
function for more than just a couple of his teammates who used to drop
by for some borscht at the house he had shared with his parents, Tatiana
and Valeri, and his brother, Dmitri, in Kanata.
It might have been as much a coming-out party as a housewarming,
signifying a new stage in Yashin's life.
For the first time since coming to Canada, he has a place of
his own. "It was important that my parents understand why I was doing it,"
said Yashin. "It wasn't because I didn't want to be with them."
Yashin's decision to move out was simply one that must be made
by young men whose time has come.
"He seems very comfortable now," said Senators captain Randy
Cunneyworth. "I think things outside of his hockey world have fallen into
place. He's out on his own and I think that's obviously helped. He's got
a chance now to lead his own life and have responsibility and I think that's
translated into a more mature person.
"His talent on the ice has always been considerable, but he's
saying and doing more off it and that's one thing that everybody has noticed."
"I'm growing up, but I don't think I've changed that much," said
Yashin. "I've got more experience in the NHL. I don't agree my personality
has changed. I've never been a closed person. I've gotten to know the guys
better, but that's only because we were changing 10 or 15 guys a year for
the first couple of years and all the guys I knew were always gone."
