Monday April 26th 2010, 12:13 am

New York Rangers forwards Artem Anisimov and Enver Lisin will remain with the Russian national team when it travels to Helsinki and Stockholm later this week for the LG Hockey Games, the final round of the Euro Hockey Tour. Both were included on the teams preliminary roster for the tournament, which was released by the Russian Hockey Federation on Sunday.

The tournament serves as the final warm-up for the 2010 IIHF World Championship, which gets underway in Germany on May 7th.

A few notable additions to the roster include Sergei Fedorov, Viktor Kozlov, and former Ranger Dmitri Kalinin. Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nikita Filatov and Denis Parshin, who were with the team for its exhibition matches in Italy this weekend, were not included.

The Russian squad will open the tournament with a game against Team Finland in Helsinki on Friday, before moving on to Stockholm for games against Sweden and the Czech Republic on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Additional changes to the roster could be made before the team departs, depending on the Gagarin Cup final results and NHL Stanley Cup first round playoff outcomes.
