Canada, Russia lineups for bronze-medal game

Canada coach Steve Spott will have a different look to his top-six forward group for Saturday's bronze-medal game (4 a.m. ET, NHLN-US, TSN) against Russia.

Ty Rattie, who scored Canada's only goal in its semifinal loss to the United States, will start at right wing on the top line, replacing Mark Scheifele. Scheifele takes Rattie's spot on the second line.

Canada also will have just six defensemen as Griffin Reinhart begins serving his four-game suspension.

Here is the roster Canada will go with, as well as the lineup for host Russia:


CANADA

Jonathan Huberdeau - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Ty Rattie

Jonathan Drouin - Ryan Strome - Mark Scheifele

Phillip Danault - Boone Jenner - Brett Ritchie

Anthony Camara - Mark McNeill - Nathan MacKinnon

JC Lipon

Scott Harrington - Dougie Hamilton

Tyler Wotherspoon - Xavier Ouellet

Morgan Rielly - Ryan Murphy

Jordan Binnington will start in goal, with Malcolm Subban the backup.


RUSSIA

Nail Yakupov - Alexander Khokhlachev - Kirill Kapustin

Anton Slepyshev - Mikhail Grigorenko - Nikita Kucherov

Valeri Nichushkin - Vladimir Tkachev - Yaroslav Kosov

Andrei Sigarev

Albert Yarullin - Nikita Nesterov

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun..
