There will be even more Calgary representation at the annual Canada Russia Series, hosted by the Canadian Hockey League. Calgary Flames prospect Dmitry Zavgorodniy will represent Russia, as will Calgary Hitmen defenseman Egor Zamula.

As of this writing, Zavgorodniy is off to a monstrous start to his season with the QMJHL’s Rimouski Oceanic. He’s third in the Q in scoring with 28 points in 13 games – a byproduct of playing on the same line as top 2020 NHL Draft prospect Alexis Lafreniere.
For the curious, here’s a quick snapshot of the Calgary representation in the six Canada Russia Series games next month.

In summation: if you’re only a Flames or Hitmen fan, you can probably skip the pair of Ontario games. If you’re interested in seeing who could suit up for Canada at the upcoming World Juniors, they all might be worth a look.
