    2017 IIHF World U18 Div.IA Championship - Bled, Slovenia; 7th-13th.Apr

    As no one among the six participating countries submitted an application to host the tournament, the organization was given to Bled, Slovenia who is also hosting the U18 Division 1B tournament the following week. I have to admit I'm a bit surprised to see no one at that level willing to host this event. With the OGQ on, 4 of them are hosting two IIHF events this season. Kazakhstan has only one but then I've never seen much IIHF events hosted there. That leave us with Denmark who will always be on the road this season. Was there absolutely no way the Danes could host it?

    If anything it can be said that Denmark’s U18 team has been fairly consistent in recent years (2011 and onwards) going back and forth between the between the top division and Div.1A and the 2016 tournament proved no different, although it did come down to a SO against Latvia in game 3 of the relegation phase.

    This year Denmark should be in the race for promotion, but it’s also a Danish team that compared to last year will be without several key players now too old to compete at this level.

    2016/2017 Results:

    Denmark - France 3-1
    Denmark - France 5-1
    Denmark - France 5-4

    Both players from Zurich were left off the team. Marcell Révész suffered an injury in the last preparation game. 15 year old 6'3" defenseman, Adam Falus, did not make the cut.

    Hungary played Slovenia twice in preparation for the tournament losing both games. Avoiding relegation promises to be a challenge.

    Looks like a really strong French team, that could earn its first promotion to the top tier since the early 90s.

    Impressive comeback from Denmark in the 3rd period against Germany turning a 1-3 deficit into a 5-4 win, to steal the bronze medal from rivals Norway. In spite of this, this is still Denmark's worst placement at the U18 level since 2002 with a team that on paper certainly wasn't bad. Looks like the competition is strengthening at this level?
    Congratulations to France for their first ever promotion to the WJC-18 in the current format.

    After having won three straight Div.I championships (2011,2013 & 2015) it’s a bit of a setback, but again with the comeback win against Germany and finishing 3rd instead of in 5th place it's also a reasonable outcome considering all things.

    And from a Danish perspective, finishing in front of both Germany and Norway is still a very good result.

    Besides there’s always next year.
