The IIHF World Championship is a yearly international tournament where the best of the players from Europe and NA (who aren't in the NHL playoffs, slightly injured, in their contract year, finishing their degree, getting married, or going to Six Flags,) duke it out for international supremacy across the pond. This year it's in Slovakia. Sweden is the defending champion, defeating Switzerland (!) last year in the finals. The US won bronze.

You can go to the schedule up there in the wiki or go the main site here.

The US never wins this thing but they have been taking it more seriously lately and have possibly their best team ever this year. Canada looks weaker than usual but still very strong. Sweden will have a good team as always and the Russians have the best top line in the tournament if they want to run Ovechkin/Malkin/Kucherov. Likely top picks Jack Hughes and Kaapo Kakko are both playing in this tournament.

Here are the tentative rosters:

Apparently Zacha has some beef with the Czech federation and won't play for them, which sucks because this is exactly the kind of tournament he should have been playing in for the past three years.

Matthews is also a punk for not coming this year, man this roster would have been so insane had he did. NHL Network is broadcasting every US game btw. Here's a Jack Hughes assist from their 5-2 exhibition win over Germany: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dLvTKR_-e0#t=107s

Looking at the rosters again -- the Czechs look pretty solid actually. Definitely a medal contender.




In another one sentence burst: I'd expect more players to be added from Dallas/Colorado/Columbus soon. Faksa would help the Czechs quite a bit.

Yuuup but Kakko looks real good and seems to be a great "consolation prize" at 2nd overall. Maybe a Malkin type 2nd overall pick.

Adds
Sweden adds Wennberg and Klingberg.
Russia adds Gavrikov and Zadorov (their D looks pretty reasonable now actually).
Canada adds Jost.
Czechs add Faksa.
