Pavel Datsyuk is a student again. He enrolled in a university in Russia to earn a sports management degree.

That's cool. Guess he's preparing for a job he'll have when he moves back home.

Joe Dumars also has a degree in (business) management.

Without a doubt would earn a #1 comedy of the year Emmy in Russia (if they have those) and Hockeytown. Pav could do stand-up once this all said and done. Way to go Pav! Maybe Stevie's Assistant GM some day down the road.

I kind of don't like this...it gets me nervous a little

he already said he would like to play hockey in russia for 3 years, so hopefully this is just an insurance thing for when his hockey career is over.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Somehow I get the feeling that this is his last contract with the wings and he will be heading home to motherland russia in 2014 :(

This is fantastic. Education is nothing to be ashamed of and I think it's great that he wants to get a college degree. Even if he never uses it, the pride that comes with having worked hard and earned one is reward enough.


Good on you, Pavs. :clap:

Good for Pavs. He now can school other hockey players in more ways than just on the ice.

If his mind is even half as nimble as his body is, he'll do pretty damned well.

It sets a great example, and in all reality if a player really wanted to do something in an organization after they're playing days are over what better way to assure that than getting an applicable education during the offseason?

While I do respect what Pav does getting higher education for proffessional athletes in Russia is just a formality. They are just enrolled in a certain university and after 5 years issued a certificate. They don't learn a thing there, don't attend exams, etc. Good news is that it looks like Pav expects to be with Detroit for at least 5 years as most probably he wants his degree "to be ready" once he is back home.

PS there is also a way to simply buy it and it is not that pricey :)

Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

I don't think he'd take a cheap way out like that. I think he's really serious about this and he'll do it right. I don't believe he would do it any other way.

Russian reporters say he is not even expected to attend the enrollemnt procedure (it is very serious in Russia, especially, when athelete like Dats is enrolled)... That's a bad sign :) However, he is now busy organizing summer camp for Russian young players. He'll be a kind of mentor there together with Boogard. Hope my home country will produce a kind of mix between Boogie and Dats soon :)
