Well Perezhogin was on the WJC at his age, (although he got injured and didn't do much), but the next year Perezhogin ripped it up, playing for both the junior and senior national team (just euro cup not wc's)

It was Victo I believe. But I personally wonder if he would had come over with them as the lure of money can be hard to overlook. Plus the Russian Hockey Federation was making a big deal about juniors leaving Russia, saying they would not be allowed to dress for the WJC's, so it might have also impacted his decision.
