Turris to Play in Canada/Russia Under-20 Series in August

Kyle Turris has been selected to play in a special Canada/Russian Under-20 Series beginning August 27th. The series is to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series between the two countries. The schedule includes 2 games in Russia followed by four in Canada.

I can't imagine this series is going to be over by the time first semester starts...I wonder if Turris is going to miss the beginning of his first semester on campus to play in this event? If so, so much for getting off to a good academic start before the hockey grind kicks in....
