Team Russia
1. Mikhail Grigorenko C - Grigorenko imposed his will tonight and was determined to make an impact. Scored the opening goal on a well placed shot and added an assist on a faceoff win. When Grigorenko decides to impose his size and reach on a game, he becomes a handful on opposing defenders. He was a real difference maker in terms of wanting to make plays and being in the right spots at the right time. Grigorenko is a big man with some soft hands around the net.
2. Andrei Vasilievski G - Vasilievski was very sharp tonight. When he is on, he is practically impossible to beat along the ice, with how quick his legs are. Made many pad stops, some of them he didn't even see until the last possible moment. He really broke the spirit of many the QMJHL shooters and got into their heads as the game went on. Cannot emphasize enough how composed he played in the net tonight.

1. Jonathan Huberdeau LW - Huberdeau had the best mojo going on for the QMJHL team. Huberdeau is at his best when he can survey a play and distribute the puck. Chipped in with a couple of assists tonight and played with some grit as he came to the aid of some of his teammates when the physicality was amped up. Have questions about how effective his overall game at the pro level but at the very least should become a powerplay demon.
2. Xavier Ouellet D - Ouellet is one of those players that is poised with the puck but could stand to be more effective without it. Ouellet is a puckmoving, playmaking wizaed from the backend but had his hands full with the bigger Russian forwards. Has an outside shot of making the Team Canada World Junior squad. Scored a nice goal on the powerplay tonight by going high on Vasilievski.
