Yes. Russia has been sending their U18 team to this tournament for years now and it's tough going for players that age against the older competition.

This year should be real tough for the Russian team once the cross over round starts as all three of the teams in Group B (USA, Canada East and Switzerland) are real contenders to win the tournament. We've seen a bit of what the US and Canada East teams bring to the table but the Swiss could be very good as well. They have the oldest team in the tournament as it's basically the European core of their U20 team and they did very well in their one previous tournament appearance.

Here's some tournament history... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Junior_A_Challenge
