MAXIM ISHKELDIN MOST VALUABLE PLAYER IN RUSSIA!
Russian Bandy Magazine appoints, since 2013, Most Valuable Players in Russian Super League. The coach and the team captain of each team in the league vote for their three favorite players. They score 3 points to the one they consider to be best and then 2 and 1 points to the other two of their chosen three players. The player who has then accumulated most points from all coaches and team captains will become Most Valuable Player of the year.
