VANKUUR – When Maxim Kotois first started to call his inspiration from Bruce Buffer, in the tunnel in the tournament area, the remaining UFC team, the rest of Team Canada did not know exactly how to react.
"I did not know what was going on," said Shane Bowsers. "I just looked and Max shouted and they were all shocked."
Comoise, who acts as a thrill of Canada, was part of last year's routine in the gold medal in Buffalo. But captain Tim Canada is the only player to return to this year's tournament, so no one else was prepared for it.
"This is the main event of the evening!" Comtois will roar tonight at TSN 1/3/4/5 and 4K. "The triple world junior competition between Canada and Russia is living from Arena Rogers in Vancouver, BC.
"It's time!", He will send Canada to the ice.
"I think the guys are getting better now," Bowers said. "You see it coming out, and just a few seconds before it starts singing."
It's just strange if it does not work, right? In both tournaments Comois played, Team Canada scored in the first six minutes of all seven preliminary matches.
Kotoisi himself opened the result against the Czech Republic on Saturday evening and set the opener against Switzerland. He is not sure whether his pumping has anything to do with it, though.
"I do not know," said Konto, smiling. "Maybe it helps. I think it's just a way of thinking about a quick attack."
Coach Tim Hunter is a great fan. The buffer is also approved. The legendary UFC writer wrote twitter on Monday, saying that imitating Comtois is "very cool". There is no question about whether Comtois owes copyright.
Hunter said he had brought to know Kotois and Canada's leadership group to make boys blame.
"I am not a fan," said Hunter. "I told them I will not move you before the game, I will prepare you for the game, but you have to get into an emotional place where you are ready to compete, but not through the line.
Team Canada is 19-8-2 at all times against Russia at the World Junior Championship. Canada will be without defender Jared Mexax, who played Saturday's second shift on Saturday, but he is suspended for a Saturday hit match.
The anthem of the previous game of Comoa offers a glimpse behind the veil of why Tim Canada chose to carry "V." Yes, he is the only player who has returned since last year, but this list has 11 players that captain their junior team. Comteus was not a captain because he was a child.
Why did Hunter not rely on a player who had previously finished the job? Because Kotois does everything.
"Right from hard things, getting guys ready in [stretching] activate them before they get dressed, get out and control the heat, settle the guys after warming up and make them all recharge before they get out, "Hunter said." He is a leader in the game. He goes for a walk. It's impressive. "
Who is probably the best player in the whole tournament. He leads the team in goals (five) and is second to Morgan Frost in points with six. The blood of the second-ranked Anaheim duck from 6-meter-2, 210 kg is a physical force.
"He's a man there," said Hunter. "You look at his body and you just go," Wow. ""
Hunter, who was an assistant coach for the last two tournaments, clearly stated that Kotois would not be a candidate for a leading role last season. He has developed a reputation as a player better suited for auxiliary work that played the best when he was not in the spotlight.
Koto's emotions often get the best out of him, resulting in fines. His maturity was called into question, to the point that Hunter said that coach Dominique Duharm and manager Joel Bushaard "challenged him".
"He's all we want since then," Hunter said. "All these young guys ripen at different rates, every area he really comes in. He's a guy we're really proud of."
Canada vs. Russia is one game in the schedule that no team needs extra juice for. The challenge will be to exploit that emotion in the biggest game of the tournament to date.
"I'm sure it will be the loudest," Bowsers said.
"It will be an incredible game," Kotois said. "Many memories of big games against Russia and it's incredible to be part [of it]. "
It's not a shock that will be considered Kotois, to help control things as well.
"We want to be in control of the game," Kotois said. "So far we have done a good job. From the start all are right."
