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.
