Russia will enter the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championships with lots of big game experience already. With names like Andrei Vasilevski, who will compete in his third world juniors, Mikhail Grigorenko, who will also compete in his third tournament after the Buffalo Sabres loaned him out, as well as Igor Ustinski, Andrei Mironov and Anton Slepyshev, who will all compete in their second World Juniors. Russia defeated Canada 6–5 in overtime on home ice to win the bronze medal, sending the Canadians home without a medal for the first time since 1998, but with all the talent in this year’s edition, the bronze wont satisfy their expectations.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
