Bobkov on Russia’s list for World Juniors

Goaltender Igor Bobkov, the Ducks’ third-round pick in the most recent entry draft, is listed on the Russian team roster for the World Juniors tournament, the Canadian Press reports. The tournament will be held in Saskatoon and Regina beginning Dec. 26.

Bobkov might not have much help on the ice, however:

The top Russian teens aren’t released by their pro clubs for the series. The country’s lineup for this leans towards a ‘B’ roster, although Anaheim Ducks prospect Igor Bobkov, named the top goaltender at this year’s world under-18 championship, is on the list.
