Pavel Sergeevich Vorobiev (born May 5, 1982) is a professional ice hockey right winger who currently plays for HC Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk of the Kontinental Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Vorobiev was drafted in the 1st round, 11th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. After playing for the Blackhawks for two seasons, Vorobiev announced in August, 2006, that he would not be returning to the team, but would instead play in Russia. Vorobiev accused Americans, but especially the Blackhawks organization, of being biased against Russians. The Blackhawks still have the NHL rights to Vorobiev until the end of the 2008–09 season. Vorobiev has not ruled out playing in the NHL again, and said he hopes the Blackhawks trade his NHL rights.[1]
