Silaev is 17 years old, in the current regular season of the Fonbet KHL Championship he played 31 matches and scored 9 points (2+7) with a utility indicator of “-5”.
— Is Larionov somehow interested in your school successes, problems, grades?
– Yes, I had such a case that Igor Nikolaevich called the school director and class teacher to his place.
– Yes. He invited me to talk about me, they brought him a report card, and I had very excellent grades there.
– In quotes?
– In quotation marks. I felt very ashamed of this. They first talked without me, and then I drove up. We discussed some points.
— Did your grades become excellent after that? Did the conversation work?
— Some worked, some didn’t. But to a greater extent, of course, they understood the situation and made concessions somewhere,” Sport24 quotes Silaev.
