Penguins prospect Scott Harrington had a solid series for Canada in the 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge, which commemorated the 40th anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series and will help determine each country’s roster for the 2013 World Junior Championship. Harrington, Pittsburgh’s second-round choice (54th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft, took a leadership role – wearing a “C” or an “A” for three of the four games – and anchored Canada’s top defensive pairing throughout the tournament. He won a bronze medal with Team Canada at the 2012 World Junior Championship. Another Penguins prospect also participated in the challenge, with forward Anton Zlobin representing Russia. The Penguins’ sixth-round pick (173rd overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft also put together a successful series, skating on Russia’s top line with elite prospects Nail Yakupov (the No. 1-overall pick in June) and Mikhail Grigorenko throughout the challenge.
