Russia: Ice Hockey Fed chief rejects 'rumours' over U18 team replacement

Russian Federation, Moscow
April 7, 2016 at 10:08 GMT +00:00 · Published

President of Russia's Ice Hockey Federation Vladislav Tretiak said that the federation "did not test" the athletes of Russia's under-18 Ice Hockey team as it "has no rights to test them in accordance with the WADA Code" during an interview in Moscow, Thursday, while commenting on the recent replacement of the entire team's roster.

Speaking from the Gagarin Cup final match, Tretiak stated that he wished the team luck before asking the media "not to use rumours and not to speculate on what has happened."

Earlier in the week it was reported that 15 ice hockey players of Russia's under-18 team allegedly tested positive for the recently banned substance Meldonium.

The men's U18 World Championship will take place in the US town of Grand Forks in North Dakota from April 14 to 24. 10 teams will be competing for three sets of medals.
