    Germany

    Looks like a pretty strong norwegian roster so far.


    News on the german IHWC roster:

    Forward Christoph Ulllmann (Eagles Mannheim) said he is not a 100% fit at the moment because of his shoulder injury. He will not play this years tournament and will instead "make room for a young, fit player".

    Headcoach Marco Sturm nominated Frederik Tiffels (Western Michigan University) for the absent Christoph Ullmann.

    This means:
    OUT: Christoph Ullmann (Eagles Mannheim)
    IN: Frederik Tiffels (Western Michigan University) (USA College Team)

    Timo Pielmeier (ERC Ingolstadt)

    Not sure what to think about the NHL deciding not to participate in the Olympics. Does that mean the WCh gains in stature and players are more likely to participate....or since there is no Olympics to strive for, players will completely forego the International forum ? Don't know.

    Regardless, it's sad we won't have best on best at the Olympics and I hope it's the former scenario....ie players instead are more inclined to opt in for the WCh since it is now the closest to best on best international play.

    Many players have expressed their dissatisfaction/annoyance/etc. about the league not going and some (like Ovechkin) have said they'll still go. I'd love to see the WCOH die a quick death since it's the NHL's half-assed attempt to get money out of an international tournament and even then they have to result to bush league stuff like North America U23 and Team Europe.

    The NHL doesn't see the Korean market as worth their time but I guarantee they will be in the 2022 Olympics because all they see when they think of China is dollar signs.

    France is getting ready for its home tournament. Still a good number of players have yet to join in as the Ligue Magnus' final between Rouen ans Gap is not over yet. Bellemare and Roussel should come as well as neither Philadelphia nor Dallas are making it into the post-season. The latter is actually recovering from a hand injury but should be ready by then. Both Auvitu and Bozon may miss the tourney due to minor league duties. Season is not over yet in Switzerland for Berthon. Huet is recovering from a knee surgery but should be here for is last outing in the blue jersey. Fingers crossed, no one missing so far due to major injury.

    Germany

    Euro hockey challenge game nr. 1 for norway and germany.

    Norway - Germany 5:1

    1:0 Andreas Stene (5.)
    2:0 Patrick Thoresen (11.)
    2:1 Jakob Mayenschein (25.)
    3:1 Jonas Holos (38.)
    4:1 Mathis Olimb (40. )
    5:1 Ken André Olimb (57.)

    Well the final result was a bit too high i think, but overall norway was the better and most important, more effiecent team.
    Both teams were equal in the firs period i think, but norway scored 2 two goals because of their effiecency.
    Then in the second and third period norway was the better team.
    On the german side too many faults were made, especially in the defence. And they did not create enough goal chances, and the chances they had, were not used.
    Only the 4th line with the youngsters and rookies in the team did really play well. Jakob Mayenschein scored the only goal for germany in his debut in the national team an together with Maximilian Kammerer and Frederik Tiffels and Patrick Zerressen in defence their line showed the best hockey on the german team in the game yesterday.


    EDIT: French team looks pretty strong too, just like norway does.

    Germany

    Euro hockey challenge game nr. 2 between norway and germany.

    Norway - Germany 5:2
    1:0 Aleksander Reichenberg (20:31)
    2:0 Jorgen Karterud (21:34)
    3:0 Patrick Thoresen (28:42)
    3:1 Matthias Plachta (32:41)
    3:2 David Wolf (39:34)
    4:2 Ken-Andre Olimb (50:36)
    5:2 Mathias Trettenes (58:25) (ENG)

    Both teams were once again equal in the first period, no goals in first 20 minutes.
    Then in the second period german team was kinda sleeping in the first 10 minutes, and let norway score 3 goals in that time.
    Germany then came back with 2 goals in the second period but the game was over after Olimb scored the 4-2 for norway.
    Germany made again too many mistakes in the defence and the special teams did not work very well together. No PP goal for germany again and penalty killing was not good either.
    They have to improve a lot in the next weeks, to be ready for the tournament when it starts.


    Meanwhile coach marco sturm made a lot of changes in the german roster for the IHWC:

    OUT:
    Mirko Höfflin (Eagles Mannheim)
    Thomas Holzmann (Augsburg Panthers)
    Jakob Mayenschein (EHC Red Bull Munich)
    Maximillian Kammerer (Duesseldorf EG)
    Marco Nowak (Duesseldorf EG)


    IN:
    Yasin Ehliz (Nuremberg Ice Tigers)
    Patrick Reimer (Nuremberg Ice Tigers)
    Marcel Noebels (Ice Bears Berlin)
    Frank Hördler (Ice Bears Berlin)
    Felix Schütz (Rögle BK/SWE)



    So the german roster for IHWC 2017 looks like this:

    GOALIES:
    Timo Pielmeier (ERC Ingolstadt)
    Dennis Endras (Eagles Mannheim)
    Matthias Niederberger (Duesseldorfer EG)

    DEFENDERS:
    Pascal Zerressen (Cologne Sharks)
    Christian Ehrhoff (Cologne Sharks)
    Moritz Müller (Cologne Sharks)
    Denis Reul (Eagles Mannheim)
    Sinan Akdag (Eagles Mannheim)
    Stephan Daschner (Duesseldorfer EG)
    Bernhard Ebner (Duesseldorfer EG)
    Frank Hördler (Ice Bears Berlin)

    FORWARDS:
    Markus Kink (Eagles Mannheim)
    Matthias Plachta (Eagles Mannheim)
    David Wolf (Eagles Mannheim)
    Brent Raedeke (Eagles Mannheim)
    Kai Hospelt (Cologne Sharks)
    Nicolas Krämmer (Cologne Sharks)
    Sebastian Uvira (Cologne Sharks)
    Patrick Hager (Cologne Sharks)
    Philip Gogulla (Cologne Sharks)
    Thomas Oppenheimer (ERC Ingolstadt)
    Frederik Tiffels (Western Michigan University / USA)
    Yasin Ehliz (Nuremberg Ice Tigers)
    Patrick Reimer (Nuremberg Ice Tigers)
    Marcel Noebels (Ice Bears Berlin)
    Felix Schütz (Rögle BK/SWE)

    We are already getting closer to what the final roster will look like. This should be the players France will go with on the blue line pending whether Auvitu (Albany) becomes available or not. A bit disappointed someone like Johann Morant (Zug) doesn't get considered but I read somewhere it was due more to the player's unwillingness than the staff's. Anthony Rech (Gap) is getting some rest. Yorick Treille (Rouen) should join in later as well as one the retiring players. NHL regular season being over, Bellemare (Philadelphia) and Roussel (Dallas) shouldn't be long. And why not Alexandre Texier (Grenoble) who is with the U18 team in Bled, Slovenia and seems to attract a little bit of interest for the upcoming NHL draft.

    And Huet, of course...

    Yes, I agree. Very few impact players available this year.

    Other players confirmed for Canada including Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Point:

    It all depends on who is available/shows up for the other countries, doesn't it?

    Team Italy - Pre tournament roster

    Team Italy is back in the Top Division and it definitely is a completely different team than at the last appearance in 2014. Coach Stefan Mair has rebuilt the team with the approach of relying on homegrown players. Backup-goalkeeper Frederic Cloutier will be the only North American-born player in Italy's roster.

    It is probably too early for this team to play a top division (last year's promotion was largely thanks to Austria losing points against weaker opponents) and everything better then last place would be a big surprise, but it will definitely provide a nice experience. The Germany vs. Italy game in Cologne is a game I can not wait for ;)

    On paper there is no doubt that goaltending probably is the only point where this team has top division level (Liiga-netminder Andreas Bernard will be in net). Thomas Larkin (spent his last season in Zagreb/KHL before finishing it in Mannheim/DEL, even earning a contract extension) will be the number one defenceman. With Alex Trivellato (Schwenninigen/DEL) injured (will probably miss the tournament) and Nick Plastino (Slovan Bratislava) not playing due to personal reasons, defence is definitely an area of concern. Veteran d-man Armin Helfer will make a return to the team (said he would retire from the national team two years ago) and provide important leadership.

    Offensively the team will rely heavily on Bolzano's EBEL players and especially Diego Kostner of Ambri Piotta. Giulio Scandella (Asiago) can not attend due to personal reasons and Brian Ihnacak (Sparta Prague) is on Stefan Mairs black list, therefore we could need a sniper.


    So far the team has played two exhibition games, both against Austria (lost 0-2 and 6-5). Italy played well considering that for Austria it was the last exhibtion games before the B-World Championships beginning on Saturday.

    Highlights of the first game Italy vs. Austria in Egna/Neumarkt (ITA)

    Highlgihts of the second Game Austria vs. Italy in Innsbruck (AUT)

    Today Italy faces Kazakhstan (19:30 CET), again in Neumarkt, livestream here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bib2eJZUZmY

    Italy will also play Slovenia (23th April, there should be a livestream as well) in Neumarkt and against USA (2nd of May) in Milano.

    Current roster of Team Italy

    quadra Nazionale Senior - Roster doppia sfida contro l'Austria

    Goalkeepers
    Frederic Cloutier (1981/Asiago Hockey 1935 – Alps Hockey League)
    Andreas Bernard (1990/Assat Pori - Liiga)
    Gianluca Vallini (1993/HC Gherdeina - Alps Hockey League)

    Defence
    Daniel Glira (1994/HC Bolzano – EBEL)
    Armin Helfer (1980/HC Val Pusteria - Alps Hockey League)
    Armin Hofer (1987/HC Val Pusteria – Alps Hockey League)
    Thomas Larkin (1990/Adler Mannheim - DEL)
    Stefano Marchetti (1986/Asiago Hockey 1935 – Alps Hockey League)
    Enrico Miglioranzi (1991/Asiago Hockey 1935 - Alps Hockey League)
    Alex Trivellato (1993/ Schwenninger Wild Wings – DEL)
    Luca Zanatta (1991/Red Ice Martigny – NLB)
    Michael Angelo Zanatta (1989/Red Ice Martigny – NLB)

    Forwards

    Raphael Andergassen (1993/HC Val Pusteria – Alps Hockey League)
    Anton Bernard (1989/HC Bolzano - Ebel)
    Marco Insam (1989/HC Bolzano – Ebel)
    Daniel Frank (1994/HC Bolzano – Ebel)
    Luca Frigo (1993/HC Bolzano - Ebel)
    Markus Gander (1989/HC Bolzano – Ebel)
    Tommaso Goi (1990/HC Biasca Ticino Rockets – NLB)
    Diego Kostner (1992/HC Ambrì Piotta – NLA)
    Simon Kostner (1990/Rittner Buam – Alps Hockey League)
    Riccardo Lacedelli (1995/SG Cortina - Alps Hockey League)
    Alex Lambacher (1996/EC Kassel Huskies - DEL2)
    Giovanni Morini (1995/HC Lugano - NLA)
    Matthias Mantinger (1996/WSV Sterzing/Vipiteno - Alps Hockey League)
    Michele Marchetti (1994/HC Bolzano - EBEL)
    Viktor Schweitzer (1992/HC Val Pusteria - Alps Hockey League)
    Tommaso Traversa (1990/Rittner Buam – Alps Hockey League)


    On another note, just to see the reality of Italian hockey and how awesome it is to see this team face squads like Russia and USA. Cortina-goalkeeper Marco De Filippo had a great season for Cortina and would have been the choice to be the 2nd/3rd goalie at the world championships, but can not go to Germany due to work reasons.

    This team (Canada) doesn't look too bad. Maybe not as strong as the last 2 seasons but respectable. And they'll pick up a few more guys after round 1 of the play-offs is over. (Perhaps Monaghan)

    We may have to cherish those past triumphs. Last year our U-18 team got clobbered at the Ivan Hlinka (a tournament we used to own) and if you thought that was a fluke, we just got bounced out of the U-18 medal round by Sweden 7-3. The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades.....

    Historically, Canada has not done particularly well at the 'official' tournament, held in April.
    Unlike the Ivan Hlinka, Canada cannot send the best players to this event, rather, the best available just like the senior worlds.
    There have been a couple of gold medal performances, most recently the team that featured Connor McDavid in 2013.
    But mostly, Canada has struggled to make the podium in this event, with only seven medals since 2003.
    Canada's loss at the last Ivan Hlinka broke an eight year run of gold and was only the third non podium finish in this event since 1991.
    The last non medal year was 2007 after which the Canucks went on a gold streak the only ended last year.

    News from Team Italy: 37-year old defenceman Alexander Egger (HC Bolzano/EBEL), who actually had announced his retirement from the national team, has decided that he will take part at the World Championships in Germany. He will most likely replace Alex Trivellato (Schwenningen/DEL) in the roster, who might miss the tournament due to a shoulder injury.

    Definitlely an important veteran presence for the team. With Trivellato out, the team needed a strong two-way-defenceman and Egger can definitely bring that.

    Italy

    News from Team Italy:
    - Defenceman Michele Zanatta has been cut.
    - There still is hope that Alex Trivellato (Schwenningen/DEL) can play at the World Championship (suffered a shoulder injury in the first exhibition game against Austria).
    - Seems as if forward Giulio Scandella (Asiago/Alps Hockey League), after first deciling the invitation due to personal reasons, has changed his mind and will join Team Italy. Coach Stefan Mair especially wants him, as Italy is in desperate need of a sniper. Scandella has represented Italy at basically every event since the 2006 Olympics, so he would also add some very valuable experience. He would be one of only two "Italos" on the Italian team.

    Norway Norway – Final Roster Announced

    Goaltenders:
    Lars Haugen – Färjestad (SHL)
    Henrik Haukeland - Leksands (SHL)
    Steffen Søberg - Vålerenga

    Defencemen:
    Jonas Holøs - Färjestad (SHL)
    Johannes Johannesen - Frölunda (SHL)
    Erlend Lesund - Mora (Allsvenskan)
    Mattias Nørstebø - Frölunda (SHL)
    Dennis Sveum - Stavanger
    Daniel Sørvik - HC Litvinov (CZE-Extraliga)
    Henrik Ødegaard - Frisk Asker
    Alexander Bonsaksen – Tappara (Liiga)

    Forwards:
    Anders Bastiansen - Frisk Asker
    Kristian Forsberg - Stavanger
    Jørgen Karterud - Linköping (SHL)
    Sondre Olden - Leksands (SHL)
    Ken Andre Olimb - Linköping (SHL)
    Mathis Olimb - Linköping (SHL)
    Mats Rosseli Olsen - Frölunda
    Thomas Valkvæ Olsen - Bofors (Allsvenskan)
    Aleksander Reichenberg - Storhamar
    Niklas Roest - Sparta Sarpsborg
    Patrick Thoresen – ZSC (NLA)
    Mathias Trettenes - Almtuna (Allsvenskan)
    Martin Røymark – Tappara (Liiga)
    Andreas Martinsen - Montreal Canadiens (NHL)

    This year’s IHWC will be the first for Norway under Petter Thoresen and after qualifying for the 2018 Olympics back in September, Norwegian hockey will be looking to finish the year on a strong note.

    While there has been a change behind the bench, it’s a roster very similar to recent year’s with returnees 17 (3+14) from the 2016 IHWC and with a couple of key players, who were absence last year also returning (Patrick Thoresen & Alexander Bonsaksen) Norway has a very seasoned team with plenty of international experience.

    4 Players (Forwards Aleksander Reichenberg, Jørgen Karterud, defenceman Erlend Lesund & goalie Henrik Haukeland) will be making their IHWC debut, and although most of Norway’s top talent is available for this year’s tournament some of the players missing, most notably captain Ole-Kristian Tollefsen and New York Rangers’ forward Mats Zuccarello (could be added latter though) would have improved the roster.

    For Norway solid goaltending and a strong team effort will be needed in order to stay competitive.

    Offensively players like Patrick Thoresen, Mathias & Ken-Andre Olimb will be expected to carry the load, but without secondary scoring, Norway could be hard pressed if they trail by more than one goal.

    Cuts:
    Villiam Strøm (D) – Lørenskog
    Michael Haga (F) - Örebro (SHL)


    Notable Players confirmed out:
    Mats Trygg (D) – Lørenskog – Opted out
    Ole-Kristian Tollefsen (D) - Färjestad (SHL) – Injury


    EHC 2017:
    Norway - Germany 5-1
    Norway - Germany 5-2
    Norway - Czech Republic 0-4
    Norway - Czech Republic 3-6
    Norway - Denmark 3-0
    Norway - Denmark 0-3
    Norway - Slovakia 2-3
    Norway - Slovakia 0-3

    The team Denmark has available for this year’s IHWC is a relatively seasoned one, but also one that could have been a lot stronger as several top players from both North America and Europe will be missing.

    There are 15 (12+3) returnees from the team that made the quarterfinals last year, but Denmark will be without three players (Nicklas Jensen, Lars Eller & Jannik Hansen) that finished top-5 in team scoring.

    Jensen could however be added latter and on the plus side of things, Jokerit center Peter Regin will be playing his first IHWC for Denmark since 2010

    On defence three Top-6 defencemen will also be missing from last year and since the back end is a position where Denmark lacks depth, it’s a bit of question mark for this year and it will be very interesting to see how this group as a whole will perform.

    In goal Sebastian Dahm will start and having been amongst Denmark’s best players in recent IHWC’s and also looking very solid throughout training camp it’s hardly a surprise.

    The conclusion from Denmark’s 8 pre-tournament games (EHC) is that while there have been positive aspects the lack of goal scoring (in all of its five loses Denmark has failed to score a goal) and a struggling powerplay are areas that will be need to be improved.

    While the opening game against Latvia will be the best indicator for which way Denmark’s tournament will go, it's not downplaying expectations to say that Denmark will be hard pressed to repeat last year's quarterfinal appearance and instead will need to take a one game at a time approach.

    Italy Team Italy - Final Roster

    Before the final exhibition game in Milano vs Team USA on Tuesday the final roster has been released. As expected, only two North American-born players ("Italos") are going to Cologne.

    Goalies
    Andreas Bernard (1990/Assat Pori - Liiga - Finlandia
    Frederic Cloutier (1981/Asiago Hockey 1935 – Alps Hockey League)
    Gianluca Vallini (1993/HC Gherdeina - Alps Hockey League)

    Defencemen:
    Alexander Egger (1979/ HC Bolzano – Ebel)
    Daniel Glira (1994/HC Bolzano – Ebel)
    Armin Helfer (1980/HC Val Pusteria - Alps Hockey League)
    Armin Hofer (1987/HC Val Pusteria – Alps Hockey League)
    Thomas Larkin (1990/Adler Mannheim - DEL)
    Stefano Marchetti (1986/Asiago Hockey 1935 – Alps Hockey League)
    Enrico Miglioranzi (1991/Asiago Hockey 1935 - Alps Hockey League)
    Luca Zanatta (1991/Red Ice Martigny – NLB)

    Forwards:
    Raphael Andergassen (1993/HC Val Pusteria – Alps Hockey League)
    Anton Bernard 'C' (1989/HC Bolzano - Ebel)
    Daniel Frank (1994/HC Bolzano 2000 – Ebel)
    Luca Frigo (1993/HC Bolzano - Ebel)
    Markus Gander (1989/HC Bolzano 2000 – Ebel)
    Tommaso Goi (1990/HC Biasca Ticino Rockets – NLB)
    Marco Insam (1989/HC Bolzano – Ebel)
    Diego Kostner (1992/HC Ambrì Piotta – NLA – Svizzera)
    Simon Kostner (1990/Rittner Buam – Alps Hockey League)
    Alex Lambacher (1996/EC Kassel Huskies - DEL2)
    Michele Marchetti (1994/HC Bolzano)
    Giovanni Morini (1995/HC Lugano - NLA)
    Tommaso Traversa (1990/Rittner Buam – Alps Hockey League)
    Giulio Scandella (1983/Asiago Hockey - Alps Hockey League)

    There still is room for one defenceman. Hopes are Alex Trivellato (1993/Schwenningen - DEL) can still somehow recover in time. If not, Ruben Rampazzo (1993/Thurgau - NLB) is also on the reserve-list.

    Staff
    Head Coach: Stefan Mair
    Assistent coach: Clayton Beddoes
    Assistent coach: Teppo Kivela
    Assistent coach: Jaakko Rosendhal
    Assistent coach: Roberto Scelfo

    Italy in its last exhibition game vs Team USA showed some promising signs, despite losing 2-5 (game stats here) Looked pretty nervous in the beginning playing against an NHL-squad, but as time went by also gained some confidence and made things happen on their own. With that being said, everything else than relegation would be worth a new Miracle-movie
