Julia Karpova, captain of Dynamo St. Petersburg. Gifs from SKAtv video. Father was a hockey player as well. When she was young they lived in Finland where her dad was playing (for Kärpät) and she had an accent when speaking. The first two gifs are from a charity game where Karpova checked every opponent including Kovalchuk and (picted here) Malkin who tripped her and then made a diving motion.
Since this post has gotten some interest in the last few hours… Karpova isn’t on the national team’s roster which you can check out here. Most of the national players come from Tornado Moscow, SKIF Nizhny Novgorod, Fakel Chelyabinsk and Agidel Ufa.

There have been a handful of live stream for the games this season. I’m not sure if the post is being updated in time but you can (hopefully) find links for live streams here (click on the “live” button and it will take you to the sites).
