Dikushin, Tiffels part of growing global presence in USHL
 

In 2011, the USHL increased the amount of foreign players each club could carry from two to four. As a result, many teams have put more emphasis on global scouting in order to recruit European skaters that will improve their teams. But, while many of the foreign players in the USHL are from Canada, two teams are reaping the benefits of their global outreach and, in turn, have improved the league’s brand among the global hockey community.



Grigory Dikushin joined the Green Bay Gamblers from Moscow, Russia in 2011-12 and has 13 points in 26 games this season, nearly matching his total of 15 he had in 42 games last season.… read more

My guess is that Russian Hockey Federation officials and coaches are far less aware of the USHL than they are of the CHL, so Dikushin may find himself ignored when they are staffing national teams for international tournaments. Its simply a matter of other players more firmly fixed in their attention, especially since he is not particularly tearing the USHL up.
