The Sharipzyanov Shuffle

Owen Sound | by Fred Wallace  

Attack Defender awaits fate at the World Junior Hockey Championship.


Owen Sound Attack defenceman Damir Sharipzyanov is in Finland with the Russian National Junior team preparing for the World Junior tournament which begins Saturday.

However, in a note to Bayshore Broadcasting News, Sharipzyanov indicated the final roster for the Russian entry was not finalized.

Meanwhile Attack General Manager Dale DeGray has been in contact with Sharipzyanov's agent and he stated the Russians have a tuneup game today and the final roster will be confirmed afterwards.

Russia plays their first tournament game Saturday at Helsinki against the Czech Republic.

Last year, Sharipzyanov was released by the Russians just hours before the start of the World Junior tournament
