Sorry I don't know French, but does the article say that Ovechkin will actually be playing?
Except for the WJC, I seriously doubt that he'd play with the Russian junior team. From what I hear, this team is more of a Russian junior select team rather than the one that will be at the WJC. I could be wrong though.
Young Russian and Alexander Ovechkin will face Rimouski Oceanic and Sidney Crosby at Rimouski.
Russian will also play Against
Brandon Wheat Kings[/QUOTE]
They won't exactly be playing these teams but they will be playing in their buildings. Each league will be selecting 2 all-star teams to play against the Russians, this is in place of the Hershey Cup series.
There's no word about Crosby / Ovechkin in this news, you can't say Ovechkin's gonna be there for sure if they didn't announce it. He's a Russian superstar, but maybe, for some reasons, they may prefer him playing in the RSL instead of missing a few matches for this exhibition..
