    Pre-tournament

    Canada 7 vs. Switzerland 1

    RW Brett Connolly, CAN: 0-0-0, 0 PIM

    Canada earned their second pre-tournament win in two games before the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships in Alberta. Connolly did not register a point, but as one of the team’s alternate captains was entrusted with penalty kill duty – a sign of respect from legendary junior coach Don Hay.

    Russia 5 vs. Czech Republic 3

    RW Nikita Kucherov, RUS: 0-2-2
    C Vladislav Namestnikov, RUS: 0-0-0
    D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: 0-0-0

    These totals are very unofficial as no score was listed on the tournament’s official site and the boxscore was posted on a message board. If it helps, one of the comments from someone at the game said Kucherov looked good. Let’s just assume it’s true. Namestnikov and Nesterov weren’t on the scoresheet, so they could have been scoreless or they may not have played. In fact, respected Russian reporter Dmitry Chesnokov is reporting Namestnikov was cut from the team. Nesterov and Kucherov made the team. (Photo of Kucherov's celebration is from the USA game earlier this week)

    Slovakia 0 vs. Finland 3

    D Adam Janosik, SVK: 0-0-0, 0 PIM

    Finland topped Slovakia in pre-tournament action Wednesday.

    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 20 GP, 9-8-0, 1 SO, 2.76 GAA, .914 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin is still riding the pine for Cherepovets. They beat Omsk today 4-3 in a shootout. Ex-Lightning netminder Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 31 shots in the loss. Cherepovets draws Magnitogorsk on Friday.

    Russia 6 vs. USA 3 (Pre-tournament match)

    RW Nikita Kucherov, RUS: 2-0-2, 0 PIM
    C Vladislav Namestnikov, RUS: 0-0-0, 2 PIM
    D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: Did not play

    Russia beat the U.S. 6-3 in Red Deer, Alberta, Tuesday night in pre-World Junior Championship exhibition play. The stats listed above are unofficial and based off comments from reporters at the game. Kucherov’s first goal was on the power play and his second was scored into an empty net. Russia still has to cut six players, but all Lightning prospects should be safe. The “real” games start the day after Christmas. (Pictured: Kucherov scoring on Stars first rounder Jack Campbell)
