The All-English Interview of Dmitry Kugryshev

At the start of Rookie Camp this week, after about six or seven questions had been asked and translated for him, 2008 second-round draft pick Dmitry Kugryshev confessed that he understood them all as they were asked in English, which made everyone in the press corps laugh. It was also very impressive — Kugryshev has been in North America only a couple of months, and learned all of his English in that timeframe.
So we got the idea to try and conduct an interview of Kugryshev in a manner basic enough so as to eliminate any need for the translation services of SovetskySport’s Dmitry Chesnokov. We think it turned out pretty good.

    I forgot you were a bigger geek than Google. 😉

    Seems like the kid has a grasp of the language, probably just a little shy.

    Wonder what he would charge Alexander Semin for some lessons?
