Canada's roster actually looks good if they aren't afraid to take the 2020 kids.

Lafreniere, Byfield, Perfetti, Drydale and Daws are legit studs. And they got lucky Byram was sent back to junior, and have enough second tier talent.

Lafreniere (2.11)-McMichael (2.33)-Pelletier (1.92)
Byfield (1.79)-Thomas (1.75)-Perfetti (1.62)
Cozens (1.54)-Newhook (0.85)-Mercier (1.57)
Groulx (1.54)-Foudy (1.47)-Lavoie (1.46
Foote (1.30)-Dudas (1.30)-Krebs (1.20)


Byram (0.71)-Harley (1.13)
Adisson (0.96)-Drysdale (1.11)
McIssac (1.00)-Smith (0.89)
Bernard-Docker (0.93)

Daws (.936)
Hofer (.935)

Russia's announced their training camp roster.

There's four CHL kids among the players invited to their camp, but the Leaf kids (SDA, Abramov) did not get invited.

Isn't SDA lighting up his league? How'd he get passed over?

Yeah, SDA is having a very good season.

But there could be a number of things working against him. One is that he's a center, which us usually the toughest spot on the roster to crack for high-end hockey countries. Another thing is that SDA is tiny.

And as leafman alluded to, Russia also usually has a preference for Russian players who choose to stay "home" and develop in Russia's own hockey program. So the guys running their program probably don't love that SDA high-tailed it out of Russia at 13/14 years of age and has been playing in Canada ever since.
