I know he's not Russian-born(he's born in the Ukraine, I do beleive), but I seen in THN that he was considered a Russian-drafted player. So, is he eligible to play for Russia in the World Cup(I'm sure he is, but just checking), and, if he could, would he? Or is he like Ozolinsh, where he is USSR born, but is proud of his home country(Latvia)?

He's eligible to play for Russia (at any International tournament), and I think he did play for Russia at the WJC. Just like Tverdovsky.
