three Russians playing in the QMJHL last year suited up for the Russian selects against the QMJHL. Artem Kozitsyn and Alexander Kozhevnikov of Val D'Or and Alexei Shkotov of Quebec.
This year the Russian selects may enlist the likes of Egor Zharkov from Cape Breton, and Alexander Radulov and Gennady Churilov from Quebec.
Also there are the possibilities of Slava Truhno from PEI, Max Gretchev from Quebec and Vitaly Lanochkin from Baie-Comeau. Truhno I believe has Danish citizenship, while Gretchev is considered American and Lanochkin Canadian, and with this game being played under IIHF rules, I don't know if there would be an eligibility question is Gretchev or Truhno were asked to play by the US and Denmark respectively later on in their careers.
