    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.

    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)

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

    Vasily Koshechkin sat backup in Cherepovets' 4-1 win over Novgorod. Ex-Bruins prospect Mikko Lehtonen had 1 goal and 1 assist in the victory. Cherepovets is now off until 12/21, when the play Omsk, for the Channel One Cup break.

    Elitserien (Sweden):
    Lulea 3 @ Frolunda 2
    Johan Harju, Lulea, 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 2 SOG

    SM-liiga (Finland):
    JYP 4 @ Lukko 1
    Riku Helenius, JYP, Win, 16/17, 1.00 GAA, .941 sv%
    Season totals: 15 GP, 9-6-0, 6 SO, 1.47 GAA, .932 sv%

    Remember the days when Riku Helenius (pictured) allowing 1 goal in a win would have been exciting? Now, if he doesn't get a shutout, we wonder what went wrong. He's raised the bar that much this season. In fairness, he somewhat made up for it by assisting on JYP's opening goal by Jani Tuppuainen. JYP now sails off into the Channel One Cup break and won't play again until the Tuesday after Christmas against SaiPa. The Channel One Cup will run from 12/15 through 12/18.

    Dynamo Moscow 2 @ Cherepovets 1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Cherepovets, DNP
    Season totals: 20 GP, 9-8-0, 1 SO, 2.76 GAA, .914 sv%

    Vasily Koshechkin did not dress in Cherepovets' 2-1 loss to Dynamo Moscow. Ex-Lightning prospect Marek Kvapil had the winner for Dynamo, his 6th of the season. Cherepovets draws Novgorod on Thursday.

    Word on the street: the latest rumor is that Nikita Kucherov may have been nicked in the Subway Super Series and that the Russian Hockey Federation may be holding him out of play to keep him healthy for the U20 World Junior Championships. Grain of salt.
