Zubov explained the absence of players from North America in the youth team at the MFM


MOSCOW, Dec 14 Head coach of the Russian national youth hockey team Sergey Zubov explained why defenders Yan Kuznetsov and Daniil Chaika, who play in the Canadian leagues, were not included in the youth world championship. The Russian team at the World Championship, which will be held in Canada, will start on December 27 with a match against the Swedish team. Also at the group stage, the Russians will play against the Swiss (December 28), Slovaks (December 30) and the Americans (January 1). “We followed the performance of Yan Kuznetsov and Daniil Chaika, hoping that they would strengthen our defensive line. I conclude that the players who passed the training camp with us are stronger in defensive actions, “said Zubov, quoted by the official website of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation.” It was not easy to make a choice, until the last moment we had serious debates on several positions. We talked individually with everyone. The guys who are leaving the camp. We thanked everyone, there are no complaints about their work. We made a choice and believe that the guys who are now in the locker room are the strongest. “” As for Ivan Miroshnichenko, at the moment he is not in optimal physical condition . And this is, perhaps, his main trump card, “- added Zubov.
