Russia U18 defenseman Alexander Romanov:
- I feel great before this tournament. We trained for a few days, but we also had time to rest. After we travelled to the USA, we needed 2-3 days to adjust to the time difference. We watched the Finns' first period against the Czech Republic yesterday, they have technical players who can skate quickly. It will be important to battle all over the ice.
The tournament will take place between February 13 - 17 in the USA. Puck drop against Finland is scheduled for 23:30 Moscow time.
