On Tuesday junior squads from the United States and Russia will face off against one another in the first of four exhibition games at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid, NY. The series is part of USA Hockey’s National Junior Evaluation Camp and is meant to give players on both sides the opportunity to earn a spot on their team’s roster at the 2010 World Junior Championship in Saskatchewan this winter.
USA Hockey pared its original 42-man roster down to 29 players on Sunday and released the list of those who will participate in the series against Russia on Monday. The roster features three New York Rangers prospects: 2008 second round draft pick Derek Stepan, 2009 first round pick Chris Kreider and 2009 third round pick Ryan Bourque. The Russian roster — featuring 22 primarily 1990-born players — was announced last week.
UPDATE: On the Russian roster I initially left Nikonorov in and omitted Nikontsev. It’s been corrected below.
We’ll be in Lake Placid for games three and four of the series this weekend. For updates and impressions, be sure to follow @byndblueshirts on Twitter.
