04/23/2008 WC Under-18: Russia edges Canada in classic show down.

U18 World Junior Championships -  Kazan – With a great performance by its second and third line, the championship hosts rally past Canada to get out with a 4-2 win in the long-awaited match against Russians’ main rivals. The game has started well for Canadians, who had some chances especially because of strong play by their frontman Jordan Eberle. Pechursky was solid in the crease and at the fifth minute Russia got the first good moment as Kulikov launches Petrov in the offensive zone with a great diagonal pass. The home talent centers in for the rushing Nikita Filatov , who doesn’t manage to hook up the puck just in front of Canadian netminder Jake Allen. Canada has played their usual physical kind of hockey they always display in international tournaments, sometimes well over the edge, and in the game they suffered of many penalties because of dirty hits, even if maybe a bit less than they should got. But the one who got ejected was a Russian, as at the thirteenth period the referees whistle a Butt Ending, game misconduct penalty against hot prospect Nikita Filatov . CSKA player will be substituted in the top line by Anton Lazarev . Even without their best player the Russians remain strong as they work out very well to kill the long 5 minutes shorthand period, leaning on Pechusrky’s shoulders, capable to stop in stile Cuma at the sixteenth minute in the rush that was probably Canada’s best chance of the first twenty minutes.

Draft Rankings and Comments:
Rank 1: #18
Rank 2: #17
Rank 1: #16
Rank 2: #16 Ranking Comments:a quick, smart player with good technique. He was overlooked at last years draft and it was especially strange because Lazarev looked appeared to be a very strong player even if Nemchinov did not select him for the WJC. He plays very well with his club-mate Pavel Chernov, but has not had a regular spot in Atlants lineup, as their head coach Kanareikin prefers icing more experienced players on his staked roster.
Talent Analysis:
General speedy winger with nose for the netphysically, he must bulk up and get stronger, but it seems that hes working on this aspecthas the stamina to play good minutes, but as all youngsters he needs to prove himself capable of withstanding the rigors of a long professional season can be knocked off the puck, must work on his stability, especially next to the boardOffense with his skating and stickhandling, he is an entertaining player to watchgood skater, with a solid accelerationhas a very good nose for the net, thanks to his movement skills and his quick shotagile with the puck, can turn himself quickly to face the net in the offensive zonecleaver player, can make good opening passes to serve the free manhas to work a bit on involving more his line mates, but hes absolutely not a selfish playerDefense like many youngsters, he tends to stands up in the own third, waiting for a new offensive rushmust work on his defensive gamehes not a one sided player, he comes back to defense, but lacks the toughness to be more responsible defensivelyMental game he displayed great passion for the gamehis high level of commitment makes him an interesting forechecker
Back In Russia:
Anton Lazarev was born in Chelyabinsk, where he graduated in Traktors hockey school. 2003-04 season: his team made it to the Junior championships finals, clinching a second place behind Chernovs, Ostapchuks and Loktionovs Spartak Moscow. 2003-04 season:he became a regular on Traktor-90 squad, also playing some occasional games with the 89 team. The 89 team won the Ural Championship with Lazarev being one of the stars with 48 points in 24 games. 2005-06 season: in the year that saw his debut with Russias 1990 born squad, his junior team clinched again the title of Ural Champions, with him once again top scorer of the league with 57 points in only 27 games. They also won the final national tournament on home soil, taking their revenge over second placed Spartak Moscow. He ranked second in the scoring race, with 10 points in 7 games, tied with hot prospect Maksim Chudinov. Top scorer was Severstals Maxim Trunev. 2006-07 season: last season was very important for Anton as not only he started taking important roles with the national team, but he also changed Russian league teams, moving from Chelyabinsk to Khimik Mytischi. There he made his debut in the Super League, scoring his first career goal, ironically against his former team from Chelyabinsk. He also skated in two playoff games.
NHL Outlook:
His technique makes him a player-to-watch kind of prospect, but he is not as strong defensively and this is what decreases his stock. He already has some experience at all at junior levels. Still a project, Lazarev has a lot of raw talent and potential. He can have top six forward potential, but needs to grow also physically.
