3 October 2012, 00:47

Evander Kane made his Dinamo Minsk debut within hours of agreeing a move from Winnipeg to Belarus, but he couldn’t save his new team from a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. Loko seized the initiative early on, with goals from Sergei Plotnikov and Niklas Hagman giving a 2-0 advantage inside the first five minutes. Andrei Stas cut the deficit, but Semyon Varlamov made 38 saves to secure the win for Loko.
