The roster for the World Junior Championships has been released today by head coach Vladimir Plyuschev and Russian Hockey Federation. Just as usual it looks like that the team’s strongest area will be the offensive front, with many high quality forwards. The defense looks a bit thin and there isn’t a clear starting goaltender. The team’s leader will be Nikita Filatov.

This is how the roster appears to be:
