Why does San Jose Sharks prospect Danil Gushchin wear No. 66? And how many spin bikes did Muskegon have to buy because of him??

Lumberjacks head coach Mike Hamilton answers these questions in a fun and informative chat:

In other San Jose Sharks news…

Per Jimmy Hamrin of McKeen’s Hockey, Dahlen had a “good debut” — “hit the crossbar once, and had a few dangerous passes in the offensive zone.” He had three shot attempts and played 19:19 in a 3-1 Sweden loss.

Here’s Dahlen’s crossbar…plus a lowlight:

Also, Yegor Spiridonov was part of a 6-2 Team Russia upset over Finland at the Karjala Cup; he played 16:02, had zero shot attempts, registered a -1, and won six of nine faceoffs. Russia is the only country to send an entire U20 team to the tournament.

Does anyone know if there are nhlers loaned to clubs that are allowed to play in the Kajalar cup. I guess what I am trying to get at is if the Nhl clubs need to give permission for said players competing in this, and if so, perhaps there are a few better choices for these countries but they couldn’t take.

Why do the other countries seems not happy with Russia sending a u20 team? I simply don’t see what’s wrong with that. Since wjc is one of the most important tourneys of the year, Russia preparing for it with there possible wjc roster seems to make sense to me. As an ex-athlete and sports organizer myself, I see many examples of this in my sport and I don’t really see what the problem is.

Pretty wicked shot from Dahlen.
