Datsyuk Out With Lower-Body Injury

Team Russia will be without Pavel Datsyuk this afternoon in Toronto after they need a regulation win over Finland to advance to the World Cup semifinals.

Datsyuk is out with a lower-body injury. The center recorded 18:57 of ice time in Monday’s 4-3 victory over Team North America.

Vadim Shipachyov will enter the lineup for Russia today.
