Tyutin named to Russian Olympic Camp Roster

Great news for Fedor Tyutin as he was named to Russia's Olympic Camp Roster today:

Defencemen: Vitali Atyushov (Metallurg Magnitogorsk, RUS), Vitali Vishnevsky (Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, RUS), Anton Volchenkov (Ottawa Senators, NHL), Sergei Gonchar (Pittsburgh Penguins, NHL), Denis Grebeshkov (Edmonton Oilers, NHL), Alexei Zhitnik (Dynamo Moscow, RUS), Sergei Zubov (Dallas Stars, NHL), Dmitri Kalinin (Salavat Yulayev Ufa, RUS), Maxim Kondratiev (Salavat Yulayev Ufa, RUS), Konstantin Korneyev (CSKA Moscow, RUS), Andrei Markov (Montreal Canadiens, NHL), Ilya Nikulin (Ak Bars Kazan, RUS), Vitali Proshkin (Salavat Yulayev Ufa, RUS), Oleg Tverdovsky (Salavat Yulayev Ufa, RUS), Fedor Tyutin (Columbus Blue Jackets, NHL).

Tyutin was the only Blue Jacket named. Then again he was the only Russian regular in the Jackets lineup last season.

You can view the entire roster here.

Speaking of Jackets defensemen the poll is certainly heating up. Commodore is enjoying a slim lead over Jan Hejda with plenty of time left to vote.

For the record my vote went to our potential Russian Olympian.

...and please, somebody out there show Marc Methot some love!

Had to vote for Hejda, he's been in my store and bought stuff. He was a really nice guy and all the ladies were fawning over him.

I'm just surprised Sergei Mozyakin isn't on that list. Isn't he one of the best in the KHL?

And OMG at the number of players out of Ufa.

You KNOW I gave Methot my love!!!

Methot gets the vote. I'm underrating Hejda just like the rest of the hockey world. Hah!

(hopefully next year we'll all be talking about how much we love Kris Russell...)
