In other San Jose Sharks news…

In the Karjala Cup, Jonathan Dahlen and Yegor Spiridonov faced off this morning. Russia edged Sweden 2-1: Dahlen played 16 minutes and was tied for second on the team with six shot attempts; Spiridonov played 15:55, had one shot attempt, and won two of five faceoffs.

Jimmy Hamrin of McKeen’s Hockey did not have as positive a review of Dahlen’s performance as he did a couple days ago: “Dahlén was okay today. He created chances and had two breakaways and a shootout, but Askarov’s superb talent came out the winner. Dahlén sometimes pushed plays that were not there and he was a bit unlucky with bounces. I thought his [Karjala] debut was a stronger effort in total.”

Spiridonov is playing top-six minutes for an upstart Russia squad that’s won their first two games of the Karjala Cup: They chose to send a full U20 team to a non-U20 tournament and faced a lot of criticism for it. It looks like a good decision.
