I mean I know the intent, but things that are written in Russian tend to confuse people. Is that the actual Russian spelling of his name?
I don't speak russian at all, but since i live a little bit closer, i can say that this is to 99% his name written in the russian way. their alphabet is called cyrillic, and if I remember correctly you can translate it 1:1, letter per letter here:
P = R
C = S
H = N
The blue flame is the logo of gazprom, the biggest russian gas-company, and since their name is written the same way, i guess it's "original".
also, i think thejerseyhub.com seems to be serious business, although i never bought a jersey there.
all those facts make me think that this really is a close replica of his SKA-jersey. you only get closer if you buy one in their fan-shop or get a game-worn
edit: yeah, and i actually don't think that you find an SKA-jersey with his name written in our alphabet, only if you find one to customize
Looks right, so now I have to wrap my head around the idea of spending that kind of money for a KHL sweater.
I found a site, that have an SKA jersey, and Tarasenko's name is written in our alphabet on it.
It seems to be a Canadian store, but they ship things to USA (for $15 if I'm correct), so take a look at it, if you would like to.
