Vorobiev Says Blackhawks Biased Against Russians

from Reuters via the Guardian,
Chicago Blackhawks forward Pavel Vorobiev has accused his NHL club of bias against Russian players. "In America, they don't like the Russians, often hate us, and Chicago is the worst club of all," the 24-year-old right wing was quoted as saying in Saturday's Sport-Express newspaper. "When 11 Russian players showed up at Chicago's pre-season training camp last year, everyone there was in shock," he said. "When I was leading the team in scoring at the start of last season it was irritating a lot of people in our club. "They just couldn't take that a Russian would be the best. For Americans such a thing would be absolutely unacceptable."
