Video: 2012 World Junior Championship – Yevgeni Kuznetsov, Russia

By Ken McKenna

Russian forward and Washington Capitals prospect Yevgeni Kuznetsov was one of the heroes for Russia‘s 2011 World Junior Championship gold medal team.  The skilled forward had gotten off to a slow start at this year’s WJC but took care of that slump with a 9-point performance against Latvia.  The point total was one off the record held by Peter Forsberg, who set that mark in 1992.

Kuznetsov talked about his big night following his team’s 14-0 win over Latvia.
