I believe Jacques said something along the lines of Yakupov playing in this because he's going to be the captain of the WJC team.

I assume if he doesn't make the Oilers (even though he's totally going to make the Oilers), he'd either stay in Russia until he does (like Kuznetsov) or go to the AHL (since there's no CHL contract in his way anymore). That said, he's going to make the Oilers.
