Triniyev now has two goals and seven assists in 26 games in the KHL. He initially floated around the lineup but settled into the left wing on the second line for most of January.
Triniyev, a 6′-2”, 190lb winger, was Drafted by the Capitals in the 4th round (#117 overall) of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.. On May 2 Triniyev signed his first NHL contract with the Capitals and the next day Signed an amateur tryout contract with the Hershey Bears.
Triniev then flew to Hershey from Russia for some practice and made his AHL debut in the Bears’ must-win Game 2 of their first-round series with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. He will play two postseason games with the Bears before Hershey’s postseason ends.
Triniyev’s brief trip to the US last spring included a trip to DC for a brief visit with fellow Russians currently in the Capital System. Alex Ovechkin had already returned to Russia, but Triniyev managed to spend some time with his idol before leaving.
“I’ve seen him, but not as much as I’d like. Alexander was busy going about his business in the NHL playoffs. (Laughs) I know he often goes to Dynamo in the summer, so I’ll have a chance to ask him a few questions.”

Triniyev really held onto his idol over the summer and skated in an exhibition game with Ovechkin on August 21.
The ideal development scenario for Triniyev would see him play most of the season at the KHL level and be primed to return to Hershey in September.
