Your secret Datsyuk
SKA’s forward Pavel Datsyuk was awarded the National Sports Prize, constituted by the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation. The superstar forward, who won the Olympic Games’ gold medal in South Korea, was nominated for the Pride of Russia award in the Athlete of the Year category.
