    Swedish Aftonbladet speculates that the entire Russian U18-team will be pulled and replaced by U17.

    is there any kind of sport, where you can trust the Russian? I was for many, many years a big fan of Russian (USSR) ice hockey, but if you always cheat......

    Well it's not much of a cheat this time. Just something that the doctor has been prescribing for years to avoid complications and that they didn't caught up to the fact that it's banned since this year (which, though, is inexcusable for the team and federation doctors).

    can somebody tell me the place, where RUS vs SVK (3:4PEN) played a warm-up game yesterday? Was it in Russia or maybe in Bratislava?

    It's in USA for sure. Maybe Thief River Falls, MN as Slovakia will face Switzerland there tomorrow.

    Slovakia Roster

    Roman Durný (MHK 32 Liptovský Mikuláš)
    Dávid Hrenák (Dukla Trenčín)
    Juraj Sklenár (MMHK Nitra) 1999

    Martin Bodák (Tappara Tampere/FIN)
    Martin Fehérváry (Malmö Redhawks/SWE) 1999
    Tomáš Hedera (Slovan Bratislava)
    Michal Ivan (HKm Zvolen) 1999
    Dušan Kmec (Örebro HK/SWE)
    Martin Krempaský (HK ŠKP Poprad)
    Erik Rajnoha (Dukla Trenčín)
    Vojtech Zeleňák (Sparta Praha/CZE)

    Peter Bjalončík
    Rastislav Václav (both HK ŠKP Poprad)
    Samuel Buček (Chicago Steel/USHL)
    Filip Krivošík (Piráti Chomutov/CZE) 1999
    Miloš Roman 1999
    Jakub Lacka (both Oceláři Třinec/CZE)
    Adam Liška (Slovan Bratislava) 1999
    Adam Ružička (HC Dynamo Pardubice/CZE) 1999
    Erik Smolka
    Marián Studenič (both Dukla Trenčín)
    Samuel Solenský (Bíli Tygři Liberec/CZE)
    Sebastián Šmida (MHKM Skalica)

    In pre-tournament play the team beat Russia 4:3 in OT and Switzerland 7:3, so they will hope to continue this trend in the tournament itself. Not sure what to expect, but the fact that the 1998 class supposedly isn't a strong one for any country (including Slovakia) boosted by the 1999 players, Slovakia will hope for a better than usual result at this tourney. Although there's probably a better chance for a really good result at home turf next year.

    See you in 2019...perhaps...

    Canada's roster looks weaker than usual for them. And Russia.................just shaking my head. Wide open field this year. Should be unpredictable and interesting!

    Finland just got a pretty nice addition in Jesse Puljujärvi. Almost feels like an overkill, a player who should perhaps not play on this level anymore... but eh, I'll take it.

    Latvia must be kicking themselves - two overtime losses.

    We could also see the (unthinkable?) scenario of Russia being relegated. I thought this was supposed to be a major power?

    (even if this year they are more meldonium-powered than major power)

    In all due likelihood they would have to play Denmark in the relegation round, and while I don’t want to jump to any conclusions (having not seen Denmark play) or sound disrespectful towards our players, winning against Russia in a best-of-three series is probably too much to ask for.

    Observations so far......the USA is dominant at this level as expected. Canada has been better than I thought they would be this year. So has Russia, considering that they sent a U17 team in the wake of the meldonium scandal. Latvia has had some terrible luck. Perhaps the biggest, most pleasant surprise for me is Slovakia. Only 2-2, but they have played well, and with a ton of heart.

    I haven't had the chance to see any of Slovakia's games so far but it seems they have been doing pretty well. Especially when you consider that they're the second youngest team in the tournament after Russia.

    There are some promising players on this team, so let's hope that they will continue their development and won't stagnate as was the case with some Slovak youngsters in recent years.

    US must be hugely disappointed after their 2-1 loss to Finland in SF today. Finland played a gutsy game kudos to them

    And Sweden beats Canada, thus setting up a Gold Medal Game between the two arch rivals (the same can be said about the Bronze Medal Game).

    Finland is a great team that deserved its win. A bit stunning to see the USA lose at this level. This is a tournament it has just absolutely owned for many years. Makes for an interesting final and an interesting bronze medal game. The prospect that the USA could fail to medal in this tournament is basically unthinkable.

    The attendance at this event has been very disappointing......tons of empty seats at an areans that is usually packed full to watch the University of North Dakota play its NCAA D.I games.

    u18 IHWC Denmark relegated

    Denmark had a two-goal lead twice, but Latvia comes back and wins the deciding game 3 in a SO.

    Well at least we are not the only ones that let in a tying goal with 2 minutes left in the game :D

    But I'm happy about the win of course. And good luck to Denmark in gaining the promotion again.

    Hat trick by Jesse Puljujärvi in the final. SWE-FIN 1-6. That's it!

    Yes, almost empty seats in the final as well. What a pity.

    It's very difficult not to be impressed by Jesse Puljujärvi. The sheer amount of raw talent combined with the will to succeed will get him to the top ranks in NHL within a couple of years.

    Easy to agree. Jesse's teammate in U20 World Championship team earlier this year, Patrik Laine, also born in 1998 like Jesse, missed this U18 tournament as he was playing in Finnish Hockey League finals for Tappara Tampere. Laine scored the most (10+5) and was selected as MVP in playoffs. Tappara won the 6th final game and the championship tonight. Even though apart of this U18 2016 tournament, however to note that not only Jesse but there are more of these kinds of superb young Finnish fellas out there these days.
