Igor Efimov, interim Russia under 17 head coach:

- We are satisfied with this training camp. We have been working both on the ice and outside, and we have spent a lot of time on the ice. All components such as physical conditioning, standard situations and special teams have been tested.

During the last two days, we have been working over tactics and how we will play on the penalty kill or on the powerplay. Although, this morning, we were looking at how the plays feel physically too. In this training camp, we have tried out different line combinations. We have kept together club lines. We will analyse this further as the matches go on. Two more forwards will arrive.

A training camp is awaiting us in Toronto. We will train on Canadian ice and prepare. One friendly will take place in Toronto, then we will move to the city where the tournament will take place. We'll play a training game there too.
