The QMJHL defenseman fumbled it. I thought the same thing there and didn't know if he'd get it.

Bobby MacKenzie says he did.

Yak took a slash to the wrist and was in pain. I hope it isn't bad.

And yes he got an assist

Edit: Back on the ice. No issues.

Russians embarrassed the Q tonight. Didn't look like they needed to exert themselves all that much either. Turn it on/off and get the job done all the same. Hopefully the Dub puts up more of a contest, I'm sure they will. Man it would've been sweet if the Oilers could've drafted Vasilievsky.

Yak looked great. The guy is electric. Hueberdeu looks like he belongs in the NHL. incredible play maker, though I wonder about his skating. might hold him back from being a star player. For some reason he reminds me of Ray Whitney.

Ya, hopefully he becomes more like Horcoff.

All this talk about Oilers should of drafted Vasilievsky....damn straight. he was solid at the WJC that was his coming out party.

And to think of it....3 stud prospect goalies in the 2013 draft and the Oilers got neither.

Vasilievsky
Subban (saw him the other night vs London solid big goalie)
Dansk (also came to London with Erie Oters and looked flawless)

Just got home from the game.

Here's what I gathered:

Yak outplanned Mackinnon and Huberdeau and also out-playmake his own teammates. Best player in the game. Wasn't even trying. Was playing not to get hurt.

Mantha, good but needs to focus more on the game rather than only dishing out physicality.

Zykov I would like him to fall to the Oilers in the 2nd round. What a beauty.

And yes, as mentioned Ouellet was probably Q best player. Skates really well.

Overall I think the Q just brain cramped. Got more shots on net but I favor the Russians in scoring chances. I could be wrong cause I was in the front row. Actually really hard to read plays up close.

Not a knock, but hell get more chances if hes breaking out as the defense are also moving up.

If hes at that other blue line when the defense get the puck, the pass probaly isnt makeable, and he loses any momentum if he has to stop and wait.

If he gets it before the red line, hell break in with a full head of steam

Yakupov had a pretty good game, i've seen better from him. It seemed like he was cruising through this game for the most part, didn't take it seriously as was also evidenced by his subdued celebration. I think this level is below him at this point in his career.
Vasilevski has elite ability, he was just as impressive in the WJC's too. Man, the Bolts have a gooder in him, just what they need too.

Huberdeau was the only noticeably good player for the Q, MacKinnon not so much although he looked better at center, don't know why they didn't play him there from the beginning of the game.
Actually, Ouellet was pretty good also now that i think about it. Sick shot on that PP goal.

I thought Yak wasn't the most dominant, but you can see his predatory instincts. He will hide in the bushes until he can pounce. His passing is softer than a babies bottom. I really think his passing is going to be a huge....nuge?
Putin approves this game.

He has a better chance of making Canada at the WJC on the wing. I'm sure that's why he was playing there.

I guess that makes sense. However, he looked more comfortable at center IMO.

All 3 were taken before our 2nd pick unfortunately.

As a Sting fan that had the privilege to watch Yakupov for 2 seasons, his passing ability is honestly what impressed me the most. I would sometimes drop my jaw at how he could get a pass to a seemingly covered team mate and he can saucer a pass like nobody else I have seen. With his other skills so captivating (shooting, skating etc) his playmaking ability is somewhat underrated, but could very well be his best attribute. I can see him being able to put up 50+ assist seasons regularly once he's established.

If I were giving out the three stars in this game

1. Grigorenko
2. Vasiliveski
3. Huberdeau/Yakupov

Grigorenko was making great plays all game, I have only seen him play 6 or 7 times and I am still baffled how he fell down so far. When he is bad he must be just putrid cause I see a star calibre player in there. Yakupov is so exciting to watch, but you can tell he is the kind of player who will get benched more than once does some little things you know coaches won't be fond of. I wish we got to see Yakupov play a full NHL season this year I am quite confident he could of scored 30 goals in his rookie year.

in 1923-41 there was an autonomy of Russian Germans on Volga near Saratov, around 600,000 people. when the WW2 started they were all proclaimed potential spies for Germany, their autonomy was dissolved and the people were banished to Siberia, Ural and Kazakhstan, with most never returning from there. among those there was my own granny's family. that's why there are many families with German names in said areas, and Schoenfeld along with Moser are most probably of this ancestry. you may remember San Jose goalie Dimitri Patzold who is of the Kazakhstan German descent. Even Pavel Bure, while having a somewhat different story, is related to Siberian Germans.
