Yegor Buyalsky returns from China to Yunost Minsk and Roman Graborenko returns after two years in the Czech Extra League back in the KHL.
Yegor Buyalski, born in the Belarusian capital of Minsk, comes from his home hockey academy. At the age of 17 he played a season in the USA with the „Moose Jaw Warriors“ in the WHL. This year, 2018-19, he also played his first game for the Belarusian national team at the U18 World Cup. In the current season, canceled by COVID-19, the 19-year-old Defender played in China at ORG Bejing in the MHL and VHL. Now Buyalsky is returning to his home country, probably because of his health.
Another popular Belarusian player changed his team: Roman Graborenko.
The 27-year-old Defender started his career in the United States. Because of his good performance the NHL organization of the „New Jersey Devils“ brought him. Graborenko initially played from 2012-14 with the „Albany Devils“ in the AHL and also for five games in the ECHL with „Elmira Jackals“. In the 2014-15 season he played his first and only NHL game, after which he was only active in the AHL. In 2016 Graborenko returned to his home country and played for Dinamo Minsk in the KHL. This was followed by team changes within the league to Neftekhimik and the Chinese team Kunlun Red Star. There he was not happy either and dares to switch to the strong Czech extra league to Litvinov. After just one season, he switched to league competitor Liberec. Now he got an offer and Roman Graborenko returns to Neftekhimik.
