Nail Yakupov and his Russian junior teammates will take on Team Canada in a super series beginning tomorrow morning in Yaroslav.
The tournament is designed to honor the 40th anniversary of the Canada-Russia series that changed the game forever. The Yaroslavl location also comes on the eve of the one year anniversary of the September 7th Lokomotiv air disaster.
The Russian portion of the 4 game series will be in Yaroslav, and Halifax is the Canadian city that gets the games.
Dennis Beyak makes the call, Mike Johnson does color. First game tomorrow morning, 9am Edmonton time.
I love hockey and this is a breath of fresh air. Watching Yakupov is the main item for Edmonton fans, and the Canadian squad boasts names like Jonathan Huberdeau and Ryan Murray.
