Editors Note: Andrey Osadchenko is a Thompson Rivers journalism graduate now living in Toronto. He's an accredited member of the foreign press and writes for sports.ru and allhockey.ru. He spoke with Sergei Shirokov about a number of topics including: being a black ace during a cup run, biting in hockey, Tim Thomas, the YVR riots, life in Winnipeg, getting traded to Florida and leaving North America for the KHL. Here's what Shirokov had to say.

Exclusive Q&A with Sergei Shirokov Via Andrey Osadchenko (translated from the original Russian).

Andrey Osadchenko: Though you didn’t dress for the Canucks in the playoffs this year, you were still with the team at the time. Would it be fair to say that it was the biggest event in your career so far?

Sergei Shirokov: In terms of gaining valuable experience, probably, yes, it was. I mean, it’s the Stanley Cup Finals. That was a big achievement for me experience-wise. Never in my life have I been a part of something as big as that. Although, I didn’t play a single game, I hung out with the team, experienced the atmosphere and saw everything that was going on at that time.
