  • Japan vs Amur Khavarovsk

    Posted by simon c on 2008 April 6日 Sunday

    Game details of the Japanese national team’s 2 warm up matches against Amur Khavarovsk (this team sent its 3rd team Golden Amur into the Asia League a few seasons ago, and has been playing practices matches against various Japanese teams in the years since then, hopefully they’ll make a return to the Asia League in the near future. The continued relationship with Japanese hockey is promising.)

    2nd Domeki 〜 Kon 〜 Takeshi Saito 〜 Jun Tonosaki 〜 Osawa
    3rd Kei Tonosaki 〜 Okuyama 〜 Uchiyama 〜 Keller 〜 Haga

    GK Haruna (Oji)  GA 1 (60:00)

    Game MVP
    Obara (SEIBU)

    It turns out all 3 university players, Haga, Kuji, and Yanadori
    got a look in the 2 test matches against Amur, turns out I didn’t look
    carefully enough on my blog post earlier (doh!) They look to be promising
    young players.

    Obara is hot, and Haruna continued to look strong in goal, after winning 9 straight AL playoff games (only allowing more than 2 goals once) leading Oji to the championship and will probably be Japan’s main goalie in the tournament as Fukufuji (who became the first Japanese NHLer last season) is tied up in the ECHL playoffs with the Bakersfield Condors during IHWC.

    I have no clue what calibre of players Amur brought over for these games because names were not given in the game reports (what?) But probably they’re probably similar to the Golden Amur players (young player and over the hill veterans that participated in the AL a few seasons ago for Amur’s 3rd team).

    Japanese national team currently has 30 players in camp, and the roster will get pared down to its proper roster for the IIHF World Championship in Sapporo which starts on the 13th.
