Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk gave a lengthy interview last week to Dmitry Chesnokov of Yahoo! Sports while in Moscow.

Datsyuk was in his homeland for a hockey awards ceremony and was preparing for a family vacation.

Datsyuk was looking forward to the rest. He told Chesnokov: "I want to turn off from everything. I feel very, very tired from everything right now. I had my hockey school in Ekaterinburg, I had this trip to Moscow, a few other things. I want to spend the next two weeks only with my daughter. I miss her a lot during the long hockey season."

The ceremony in Moscow featured a highlight reel of Datsyuk, including his opening-night fight with Anaheim's Corey Perry.
