Lightning prospect Nikita Kucherov assisted on the Russian's final goal, an insurance marker by Mikhail Grigorienko late in the second period. For his part, fellow Lightning prospect Nikita Nesterov (pictured) continued the theme of his season going +2. No one collects pluses quite like Nikita Nesterov. He also took a minor for interference early in the third period. Russia faces Slovakia next on Wednesday.

    Pre-tournament

    Canada 3 vs. Sweden 5

    RW Brett Connolly, CAN: 0-0-0, 2 PIM (slashing)

    Canada finished their pre-tournament games 2-1 after a loss to Sweden Friday night. They open play Monday against Finland. Connolly finished the three games with one assist and a penalty.

    Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman (pictured with Sweden at the WJCs in 2009) tweeted after the game: "Congrats to the Swedish WJC team that beat Canada today ! Let's do that again later in the tournament"

    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.

    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)

    Canada 3 vs. Finland 1 (Pre-tournament match)

    RW Brett Connolly, CAN: 0-1-1, 0 PIM

    Canada got a win in their first pre-tournament game before the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships in Alberta. Monday night they took down Finland 3-1 in Calgary’s Saddledome. Lightning winger Brett Connolly, permitted to join Canada by Bolts general manager Steve Yzerman, had an assist for the Canadians on Boone Jenner's goal. Last year Connolly had three assists in seven games for Canada.

    Additional Lightning prospects in the tournament include Vladislav Namestnikov, Nikita Kucherov, and Nikita Nesterov for Russia, and Adam Janosik for Slovakia.

    QMJHL

    Saint John Sea Dogs 5 @ Moncton Wildcats 2

    D Daniel Milan, MON: 0-0-0, -2, 0 PIM, 1 SOG, 0 Hits
    Season Totals: 29 GP, 0-4-4, -9, 27 PIM

    USHL

    Tri-City Storm 3 @ Sioux City Musketeers 1

    G Adam Wilcox, TC: Did not play (backup)
    Season Totals (with Tri-City): 5 GP, 1-4-0, 3.22 GAA, .910 sv%, 0 SO
    Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

    Uh-oh. Wilcox’s partner in net, Phoenix Copley, started and excelled in his third straight game. He also started and allowed just one goal in a win on Tuesday. Wilcox was traded from Green Bay because they couldn’t offer him the starts he deserved. Tri-City is likely “just” going with the hot hand, but Lightning fans would like that hot hand to be Wilcox. Of course, Wilcox has to do his part, and he’s lost his last four games.

    OHL

    Kitchener Rangers 1 @ Owen Sound Attack 3

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 23 GP, 0-7-7, -1, 16 PIM

    Third place (Midwest Division) Owen Sound outshot second place Kitchener 44-24 on their way to a big win over the Rangers at home. Schemitsch has been scoreless in his three games since returning from an injury. Prior to being hurt on November 12 he had points in four of his last six games.

    QMJHL Note: Lightning prospect Adam Janosik of Gatineau has joined Team Slovakia in preparation for the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships.

    OHL

    Guelph Storm 1 @ London Knights 3
    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 33 GP, 17-23-40, +10, 28 PIM

    Former Lightning camper Seth Griffith scored an empty net goal for his 26th goal of the season as London topped division rival Guelph, 3-1. The undrafted Griffith has 46 points in 33 games to go with a plus-17 rating. He has a 12 game point streak going and has had at least a point in 24 of his last 26 games. He was passed over in last year’s draft and camped with the Lightning before being sent back to the OHL without a contract. He sits in sixth in the OHL in points and is second in goals.

    Owen Sound Attack 3 @ Sarnia Sting 5

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 22 GP, 0-7-7, -1, 16 PIM

    Likely 2012 top-3 pick Nail Yakupov had a goal and an assist in Sarnia’s win over Geoffrey Schemitsch and Owen Sound. The Russian has 51 points in 25 games. Yakupov, Lightning prospect Nikita Kucherov, and Quebec Rempart Mikhail Grigorenko are expected to be the offensive leaders for Russia in the upcoming U20 World Junior Championships.

    C Vladislav Namestnikov, LDN: 1-1-2, +1, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 31 GP, 17-23-40, +10, 28 PIM

    Namestnikov scored at about the 1:00 mark of the first period – his 17th of the season – then assisted on Seth Griffith’s 25th of the year later in the game but it wasn’t enough for the CHL’s top ranked team to beat the Petes. Namestnikov failed to convert a penalty shot attempt in the game.

    Owen Sound Attack 6 @ Windsor Spitfires 4

    D Geoffrey Schemitsch, OS: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM
    Season Totals: 21 GP, 0-7-7, -1, 16 PIM

    He’s back! Though he was scoreless in the game, Schemitsch (pictured) played his first game since being injured November 12. His name has been mentioned in the local press for being possible trade bait as Owen Sound looks toward the future.
