Canada vs. Russia hockey superseries kicks off Monday

By Tyler Penney [1]

BELLEVILLE – The 2016 Canada-Russia Series [2] kick offs Monday night in Prince George, B.C. The Western Hockey League [3] all-stars will look to get the 14th edition of the annual clash of nations started with a win.

The Canadian Hockey League [4] prevailed last year with a 15-3 victory by points – five wins and one loss. That victory continued a see-saw battle that has seen alternating victors each year dating back to 2009.

Two players from the Peterborough Petes will get their chance against the Russians in a game Thursday in North Bay between all-stars from the Ontario Hockey League and Team Russia.

The Russians take on Team WHL twice, Team OHL twice and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League all-stars twice. Team OHL plays again next Monday in Hamilton, Ont.

Team WHL’s lineup for tonight:

Goaltenders:

Defencemen:

Forwards: 

Monday’s game starts at 10 p.m. EST on Sportsnet.
