DANAULT & SHALUNOV in August action...

...for their respective Canadian and Russian Squads in the CANADA-RUSSIA HOCKEY CHALLENGE 2012 which has games in Yaroslavl Russia Aug 8th and 9th then swings back to Canada for games in Halifax on August 13th and 14th....Canada is using this
to replace its usual Canadian Jr. u-20 Summer Evaluation Camp ..

Of note on the RUSSKIE roster--undrafted d-man ALEXEI SHESTOPALOV 6'5 242
(born Sep 30,1993) --he wasn't on any of the radars/ranking lists for the 2012 draft
so must be a late bllomer that caught the eye of the Russians to deserve to be on their squad for this event along with several first rounders like Yakupov and Grigorenko and Vasilevsky who are also on their squad for this event.. most of the kids in this event have been drafted but unknowns like SHESTOPALOV and KNOWNS but undrafteds like goalie ANDREI MAKAROV along with a sprinkling of 2013 draft eligibles like Canada's SEAN MONAHAN should attract the scouts to this series of games..

Kinda surprised Shalunov was selected. I thought the Russia jr selection committee didnt like Shalunov for whatever reason but Im glad he was picked. As fas a Danault, Im expecting strong 2 way play and good results on f/os when hes in the circle.

No opinion on Shestopalov.

I wasn't surprised that Shalunov was selected, but I did think he would be snubbed.
