He's living in Sarnia. His father is an assistant coach with the Sting and Yakupov is billeting with them.

You say he isn't eligible to play for anybody else but the IIHF says he can't play for the only team he is eligible for!

Imagine if for whatever reason Galchenyuk wasn't able to play for Russia? And he wasn't able to play for the US? Then the IIHF basically says, no sorry, you can't play international hockey at all.
Just recently there was such case when player actually wasn't eligible for no team at all and IIHF allowed to choose a national team. Rod Stewarts' son was British-New Zealandish citizen who had played hockey only in USA, so IIHF "made an exemption under the extraordinary circumstances article so Stewart could play internationally for a country he is a citizen of".

Martins Lavrovs (Assat U18, Finland)
Rūdolfs Pētersons (HK Rīga95, Latvia)
Roberts Šmits (Select Hockey Academy).

For NA hockey fans Blugers is the main star of the team, but the first 4 MHL-A forwards on the list are very talented as well, probably have a chance at being late NHL draft picks. Merzlikins is the frontrunner for #1 GK job and may steal a game against the Swiss or Germans. D is our weak spot, I have no idea how good Kalvitis & Bazevichs are.
Our head coach Tambijevs just confirmed that Merzlikins won't be the starter, Punnenovs will be.

I'm hope he knows what he is doing, though I'm not so sure.

Well, the U.S. has Galchenyuk on their entry list. http://stats.iihf.com/Hydra/292/IHM2920USA_32E_1_0.pdf

I don't get why they didn't just name him to the team.

I wonder if we should assume Alex is indeed eligible given that list? Probably not safe with the IIHF.

No, he was just on their initial list for possible selection submitted to the IIHF.

Is anyone in this thread actually watching these games live?

Anyone watch the stream?

Looking for lineups (forward lines and defense pairings).

I am not sure who Alexander GALTCHENYUK is...maybe that was the problem...the US gave the IIHF the wrong guy...

Same here. I thought Merzlikins was the clear #1.
