Russian New York Rangers striker Pavel Buchnevich said that he had returned to Cherepovets from New York due to a pause in National Hockey League (NHL) season due to the spread of coronavirus.
The hockey player said that Cherepovets is his favorite city. However, in his opinion, it would be safer in New York, but he preferred to return to Russia for a pause.
“I think that in New York it would still be safer. Only there I would have gone crazy. As I understand it, a pause in the championship will last a long time. It seems that the city will be quarantined for six to eight weeks. What is it that I sit there for two months at home? What's the point? Better in Cherepovets, ”said Buchnevich in an interview with Sport-Express.
Before leaving, he was visiting Artemy Panarin's teammate for four days. “Everything was cool, a country house, but visiting is good, but home is better,” he summed up.
In the USA, because of the coronavirus, the championships in the NBA, NHL and MLS were suspended. The first NHL player to be infected with coronavirus was Nikita Zaitsev, the Russian defender of the Ottawa Senators team.
Recall that in the USA the number of coronavirus pneumonia victims exceeded 1 thousand people.
