    Thomas Spelling - SønderjyskE
    Patrick Bjorkstrand Medvescak Zagreb (KHL)
    Søren Nielsen - Esbjerg

    Comments:

    A roster selection very close to what can be considered the strongest possible lineup (see missing players below) for Danmark.

    In goal Sørensen and Galbraith will probably get to play one game each, while the normal starter for Denmark Sebastian Dahm, presumably has been given time off.

    The defence is perhaps not that surprising, but it would have been interesting to see a Matias Lassen or a Anders Krogsgaard get the chance.

    Esbjerg's Nicholas B. Jensen could probably also challenge Mads Bødker for a roster spot.

    Up front the most significant is the return of center Peter Regin, whose last game for Denmark was back in 2010.

    For the second straight EIHC, Nicolai Meyer who leads the Danish League in scoring has not been named.

    Though given that Meyer primarily is an offensive minded player and not suited for a spot on a 3rd or 4th line, his absence is arguably not that much of a surprise.

    Esbjerg’s center Søren Nielsen is the lone player to make his NT’s debut.

    Key players missing from the roster:

    Philip Larsen (D) – Jokerit (KHL)
    Nichlas Hardt (F) – Linköping (SHL) – Injury.
    Jesper Jensen (F) - Rögle (SHL) – Injury - Out for the season.
    Julian Jakobsen (F) – Hamburg Freezers (DEL)
    Sebastian Dahm (G) – Graz 99ers (EBEL)

    Here you go: http://www.internationalhockey.net/f...rise-in-hockey
    A simple search will find you plenty of threads about South Korea's "new" dual nationals. But really no need to start that debate in every thread about Croatia OR South Korea, when there's threads already discussing the issue.

    I think the fact that South Korea is using a half dozen non-Koreans is ridiculous, but we've been over this topic before.

    Comments:

    Norway’s roster is as expected and not that different from the one that won MECA Hockey Games back in November.

    Lars Haugen has been given time and is replaced by Leksands’ Henrik Haukeland.

    On defence Brynäs’ Mattias Nørstebø is back for Norway but he hasn’t played for his club since October due to back-to-back injuries .

    Up front another Brynäs player namely forward Sondre Olden also makes his return and rounds out a solid group of forwards.

    On paper not the strongest Norwegian team, which mostly is due to the absence of a number of key veterans (see below) but with some of them not getting any younger, new talent will have to replace them a few years down the road.

    Key players missing from the roster:

    Lars Haugen (G) – Färjestad (SHL) – Given time off
    Jonas Holøs (D) - Färjestad – Given time off
    Ole-Kristian Tollefsen (D) – Färjestad (SHL) – Injury
    Martin Røymark (F) – Färjestad (SHL) – Given time off
    Patrick Thoresen (F) – Djurgårdens – Given time off/nursing an injury
    Morten Ask (F) – Vålerenga - Injury
    Alexander Bonsaksen – Tappara (Liiga) - Opted out
    Daniel Sørvik - GCK Lions (NLB)
    Mathis Olimb – Kloten (NLA)

    Roster update:

    I could probably name a Dane or two who is playing in USA or Canada whose presence would improve this team.

    Well I admit that very close to what can be considered the strongest possible Euro based lineup would have been a more fitting presentation of the team

    Quite surprising that South Korea managed to only lose 2-5 and 1-3 to Norway and nowhere close to being massively outshot. Will be interesting to see what the Danish team can do......

    We played them twice last April or more exact our U23 team played, losing respectively 4-2 and 4-3, but today’s roster is a bit different from those two games.

    Norway is missing a lot of players and Korea is one of those teams, where you really don't know what to expect so perhaps that’s part of the explanation.

    And from the sound of it, the Koreans look to have been able to throw the Norwegians a bit off their game.

    Interesting to hear from Mats Rosseli Olsen, that the Norwegians "didn't play their game" and will have to change that when playing Denmark. Then you read about the 3rd period being with the referee constantly calling for penalties (apparently the 100 kg Martin Laumann Ylven "flattened" a Korean in a fight).
    Everytime we meet Norway, that is EXACTLY their game against us. What are Tollefsen otherwise for....?

    Otherwise I think you are correct with Norway holding back somewhat and observing this unknown. In both matches their win was never in any danger.

    30 minutes of ice-time is one

    As for Norway....well never fun when the opposition decides to use the same tactics though so far Korea looks to have great team speed and discipline, so have to wonder why they spend so much time in the penalty box in yesterday’s game?

    Cause today's gameplan looks pretty good.

    Comments:

    A Danish team, which at times looked a bit rusty manages to grab all three points against a very hard working and well skating Korean team, that through an aggressive forecheck was able to disrupt Denmark’s transition game and thus keep the score close.

    Yeah I know Tollefsen do have other uses
    So did anyone see the match Denmark-Norway?
    Did Norway play "their game" according to Mats Rosseli Olsen?

    Not really.

    For the most part I think we controlled today’s game very well (goal scoring continues to be an issue though) and outside of Martin Ylven, they didn’t play that physical.

    Also, with several of their skill-players out of the lineup it’s more risky to play that style, since they cannot afford to spend too much time on the PK.
