Of course, fellow Michigander!
Russian players or any others whose names are based on the Cyrillic alphabet are difficult to transcribe into our alphabet. So in searching for them you need to use a lot of wild cards.
You list his name as using a 'ch' which is the sound of the German or Scottish 'ch'. Internationally this sound though is transcribed as 'kh'. Also, the letter 'x' (coincidentally how the 'kh' sound is shown in Cyrillic... but now I'm confusing things, sorry!) has no single letter version in Russian, they write their version of 'ks'. So we list him as Maksim Mikhailovsky. I searched this way for him:
His stats are at: http://www.eurohockey.net/players/index.cgi?page=show_player.cgi?serial=1823... he's at CSKA Moscow.
