Malcolm Subban, Dougie Hamilton lead Canadian Junior team past Russia

A pair of Bruins prospects stole the show in the first game of the four-game Canada-Russian challenge Thursday as Canada beat Russia, 3-2, in Yaroslavl.
Malcolm Subban, Boston’s first-round pick (24th overall) in June’s draft, was named Canada’s player of the game as he stopped 19 of 21 shots, 11 of which came in the third period. One of the two goals he yielded was to Nail Yakupov, the first overall pick by the Oilers.
Subban wasn’t the only Boston prospect to come up big for Canada, as defenseman Dougie Hamilton scored an unassisted power play goal in the second period that proved to be the game-winner. The two countries will play again Friday before the series concludes with a pair of games Monday and Tuesday in Halifax.
There was a moment of silence prior to the game to remember the members of KHL team Lokomotiv Yaroslavl who lost their lives in last year’s plane crash. Among the victims were former NHLers Ruslan Salei, Kārlis Skrastiņš, Pavol Demitra and Igor Korolev.
