Russia lost Alexei Cherepanov (New York Rangers) in the second game and Egor Averin in the first game to concussions. Both players are believed to be lost for the entire tournament. “It was unfortunate that with a check in the back, which I didn’t even see, I was bounced in the very first game. Now I will have to miss not less than two weeks. I will have to watch such a great game from the stands in my own home town” said disappointed Averin to a Sport Express correspondent.

Talent Analysis:
Scout 1: an effortless skater who can reach top speed by using just a few of his long, effective strides...plays with above-average agility and possesses a decent balance, but still could use more lower-body strength...okay top-end speed...would be more dangerous if he could use his quickness in a more effective way...boasts a strong pair of hands which control the puck smoothly...utilizes on his okay offensive instincts...can sneak through opposing defenses...a solid player in one-on-one situations...willing to play in traffic, but doesn't play a physical style...above-average finishing skills...often looking for breakaway chances...releases a precise wrist and snap shot...decent hard slap shot, which could be more accurate...his intensity off the puck drops off...doesn't show much commitment to the defensive play even if he occasionally returns back...sub-par defensive positioning...more effective on the power play units than on the penalty killing units...prone to taking long off-shifts.
