The Russians have arrived and are ready for their annual fall trek across the great white north. Team Russia won both of their games against Team QMJHL in last year’s event, winning 2-0 in Game 1 and 5-4 in a shootout in Game 2. This season, Oilers fans can look forward to watching Nail Yakupov and Daniil Zharkov during the next two weeks.
LINES: Tonight’s line combinations and defense pairings as tweeted by RDS’ Stephane Leroux.
Etienne Marcoux will start in goal
Jonathan Drouin is hurt and will not play. Matt Murphy and Zach Fucale will not be in the lineup for Game 1 either.
I’ve looked for the Russian lineup (don’t know if Zharkov is playing) but can’t find it. Post it if you see it. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em.
