By Ken McKenna

Russian forward Mikhail Grigorenko nearly had his first Under-20 WJC appearance cut short by an ankle injury.  But Grigorenko, a top prospect for the 2012 NHL Draft, has overcome that injury and is poised to help Russia defend their 2011 WJC title in the 2012 gold medal game against Sweden.

Grigorenko talked about the win over Canada and about playing Sweden in the final.
