Yep they all did, which was great to see. Especially Kucherov. He was dynamite. Just this game you saw everything you wanted to see from him. Put some big hits out on Scheifele and Danault, out worked and got the puck past Harrington multiple times, and almost scored some beauties on Subban. Along with his flashy goals, and his big clutch game against the Swiss, he looked like one of the top level players in this tournament.

Somewhere in the 1st round for sure. He had a highlight reel rush that Tkachyov popped in to win it against the Americans and that OT winner he just scored against Canadians for the Bronze. Those are 2 big skill filled goals for a 17 year old in this tournament. He's the hero today for the Russians and his stock will definitely go up thanks to his performance at these world juniors.
