    Another Slovak player, Vladimir Dubek, has obtained Hungarian citizenship. Dubek, who turned 30 today, currently plays for Miskolc. He finished the regular season 4th overall in scoring (by way of comparison, Ladislav Sikorcin finished 9th). Dubek has suited up for the Hungarian national team 3 times and may be considered for this year's W.C.

    Good group for Hungary this year, I'll be watching very closely hoping for them to take the Italians and get themselves back to the top level.

    Kiraly, I remember hearing somewhere at one point that Arpad Mihaly has dual Romanian-Hungarian citizenship and was playing with AV19 with the goal of qualifying for the Hungarian national team.
    I'm not sure how true that is, but if it is, when did he join Fehervar (in other words, would the full two years pass in time for this year's World Championship, or would he have to wait until next year?)

    It must be two full years since he became Sapa player, so he could play for Hungary next season. Same with Cronucks from Medvescak. They all were signed by Bears before 09/10 just as Mihaly were by Sapa. :)

    Example: If he signed with Sapa in June 2009. that means two years will pass this June(and WC is in April), so he can play in 2012. :)

    Yes, I'm aware of the requirements, which is why I was asking about the date when he was signed (and for confirmation on the dual-citizenship question).

    Think Mihaly has now Romanian-American citizenship. When he'll be able to play for the Hungarian NT he'll drop the Romanian once. Those were the rumours some year ago.

    Good effort! The Japanese can need some support for sure. Still I could easily imagine that they cancel their participation.

    Regarding Arpad, I"ve read that he will be eligible to represent Hungary in the 2012 World Championships and that he wishes to do so. I believe he still has dual Romanian-American citizenship, although I don't think dropping the Romanian and acquiring Hungarian citizenship will be difficult.

    In about a week it shall be decided whether New York Rangers will play against Team Hungary during its European pre-season tour. The planned date of the match is 3rd October, the venue is the Papp László Budapest Sportaréna. Ken Yaffe NHL International Executive was on a visit in Budapest in the past days and told that the negotiations about the match are going well.

    Two legendary players announced their retirement from the national team after the Div I A IHWC in Budapest. #5 SZÉLIG Viktor, the Captain of the team participated on 21 senior world championships and have 232 caps, #4 HORVÁTH András participated on 19 senior world championships and have 225 caps. Szélig will continue in Briancon, Horváth plans to leave Sapa Fehérvár AV19 and play some more years in a Budapest team. Both players started their national team carreer in the pool C and played in the former pool B and in the DIvision 1 after that, both of them were members of the team which promoted to the elite after 70 years and played in the elite in 2009 as well.

    Thank you guys for your efforts to raise Hungarian hockey.
