    That's just my guess! Not sure if it's my personal stand of view but based on previous selections, I think that's how it's going to work out. What do you guys think?
    I think the two games against Slovakia should give a good indication (surprise,surprise :) on who’s in and who’s out.

    The argument for keeping Mikkel Aagard would be that in addition to having played very well, he has also added some offence (5 points in 6 games) and his +/- of +7 is first on the team, which is pretty solid for a 20 year-old forward making his NT's debut.

    Aagard is also a player for the future (same goes for From) and regardless of how this year’s team will perform, we are only two years away from hosting the tournament on ice-home, so (IMO) you got to focus on the players, who potentially could be part of the 2018 roster.

    Now with Christensen and Jensen being available the question obviously becomes how do you fit them all in?

    If Karlsson sticks to the idea of having our NHL’ers on the top line, Ehlers will be moved from the 3rd to the 1st line. As an alternative, Jensen could play with Hansen & Eller, while Ehlers stays with From & Aagaard or with Christensen, who has played center before while Aagaard then centers the 4th line with say Bau Hansen & Poulsen/Starkov.

    This obviously creates another problem namely, what do you do with the captain? Who apparently has to play on one of the three top lines.

    So that basically leaves Green centering a line with Christensen/Jensen or with Ehlers and Christensen/From on the other wing. Unless of course he’s moved to the 4th line to play, which arguably would mean that either Aagaard or perhaps From are out.

    As for Thomas Spelling, I agree that he alongside Aagaard could be the odd man out, which would be a shame, but again, at this point and presumably going forward, he’s a forward you would prefer to have on one of the two top-lines and it’s getting crowed there, not only this time around but also going forward.

    And the same can be said about the bottom-six, where you the have the likes of Hardt, Madsen, P. Bjorkstrad, Jakobsen, Storm and a Bau Hansen presumably being better fits as 3rd or 4th line players than Spelling.

    But needless to say, it will be interesting to see how the final roster will look like.

    My guess is Mikkel Aagaard and Thomas Spelling and here's why;

    I think Aagaard might be a little too young still and bringing three "junior players" to Moscow might be a little too much, even though Janne Karlsson likes young players. Aagaard plays the center position - where we are soft to say the least, this year. Aagaard lacks WC experience and with a team missing 4-5 core players that can be crucial. I think Kirill Starkov will be picked over him because of his versatility to play the center position if needed, and because of his experience. We are also going to need the extra pounds from Kirill to compensate for our smaller players.

    Regarding Spelling - from experience Janne Karlsson is very reluctant to use Spelling in a 4th line grinding role, and with the amount of offensive talent the Danish roster has this year, I think it's going to mean that Spelling will not make the team. I think Janne Karlsson has more trust in Bau Hansen, Poulsen and even Mathias From to full fil a role like that. Then again - Spelling's defensive game has improved but much like Starkov his level of intensity varies alot.

    That's just my guess! Not sure if it's my personal stand of view but based on previous selections, I think that's how it's going to work out. What do you guys think?
    I'll just say my oppinion on who I think should be cut, because I'm definitely qualified :D
    Nah, in all seriousness I think Mads Bødker and Starkov should be cut, I feel we have better players for the roles those guys cover. Also I'm guessing Karlsson will probably leave at least one spot open for a late NHL-reinforcement.

    All in all I think the team looks a lot deeper on talent and spirit than in the last few seasons, so let's hope that will be enough.

    Well after seeing today's lineup against Slovakia, I'am glad someone is qualified, cause I'am definitely not :)

    Well it's pretty safe to say that neither of us got close, although I imagine Starkov being a 1st liner means hes a placeholder, I really doubt that's his intended use at least :-)

    I think it’s safe to say that, the role as 1st line center is reserved for a certain Montreal Canadien.

    Well, quite a tournament for Denmark.

    A quarterfinal loss to Finland is what it is and the same goes for the 10-1 loss to Russia, which obviously doesn’t look good in the record books, but also something that makes little difference going forward.

    For a second year in a row Dahm was stellar in net and for the most part the defence looked rather solid, which is pretty good, considering that Jesper B. Jensen was limited to 3 games and half of our starting defencemen this year comes from the Danish Elite League.

    Not surprisingly the addition of Ehlers, Eller, Hansen & Jensen provided vital, helping out the team in pretty much every aspect of the game and after several years (or basically since the 2010 IHWC) of finishing rather low in the standings, it for once is positive to see Denmark move up the World rankings.

    What this year’s IHWC also showed, which hardly will be a groundbreaking observation, is the difference it makes to have some of our top players in the lineup, and with availability of the NA based players being a bit of a question mark every year and injuries always a factor, having booked our ticket to the 2017 IHWC and thereby also to the 2018 tournament on home-ice, is needless to say quite important.

    While the IIHF is yet to confirm next year’s group, it at this point looks to be a rather reasonable one and not having to worry about being relegated, can only be a huge plus.

    If we sort of excluded the Olympic Qualifications Tournament in September, the selection process for the 2018 IHWC in Herning/Copenhagen has also in sense started, a process which will be interesting to follow as there should be plenty of competition at all positions.

    So all-in-all an excellent 2016 IHWC for Danish hockey.

    10 - Germany
    11 - Norway
    14 - France
    15 - Slovenia

    Since Germany and France, as co-hosts cannot be in the same group, Germany could switch place with Belarus or as an alternative, France will take Denmark’s spot in Group A.

    Not the best situation to say the least.

    Qualifying to the Olympics and thus having the opportunity to play with the “A” roster at an international tournament has been high on the list for Danish hockey for several years now, so if Denmark finally makes it come September, it would be bit of an anti-climax if the best players aren’t available.

    But guess you can say that’s better to achieve just one goal, than none at all

    A win and two losses for the Danish senior national team in the first of two EIHC tournaments this season.

    What initially was a veteran roster ended up being more of a development team with primarily players from the Danish
    Elite League, although several of the younger players could challenge for a roster spot within the next 2-4 years.

    After a good showing against Poland, Denmark sounds to have been dominant at times against Hungary, but it’s difficult to win at this level if you only generate one goal on 40+ shots.

    In the last game playing Austria, Denmark at times looked overmatched, especially in the 2nd period.

    Still thanks to Dahm in net it remained a close game for nearly 59 minutes and Denmark played much better in the 3rd period.

    Thus overall a pretty decent performance by a relatively young and inexperienced Danish team considering all things.

    Denmark Denmark – IHWC 2017 – Camp Roster I

    The starting point for this year’s Danish IHWC team was announced today with 24 players being named to the first of several camp rosters.

    As usual, the selected roster is a mix (and without any major surprises) of national team veterans and a group of younger players, including skaters 5 from this year’s WJC-20 roster looking to the make team.

    From the onset and obviously depending on the availability of others players from the various European leagues and NA, a qualified guess would be that roughly 10 (8+2) players from this roster will be part of the Danish team come May.

    With the core of the Danish national team still being relatively young and Denmark hosting the IHWC next year, there’s little indication (injuries and players opting out aside) that this year’s roster will see major changes compared to recent years.

    On defence however with the absence of Mads Bødker, who retired from hockey after last season and Emil Kristensen being injured for most of the season and just returned to Linköping's lineup, there might be an opening on the roster for some of the younger defencemen to take advantage of.

    In goal Sebastian Dahm is entering training camp as the starter and if he displays the same level of play as in the previous two IHWC’s, he will also enter the tournament as Denmark’s starting goalie (assuming Toronto’s Frederik Andersen doesn’t become available) with Simon Nielsen as the backup, since George Sørensen is still a bit unproven at this level.

    Depending on the outcome of the Frederikshavn-Esbjerg series, someone like Nicolaj Henriksen could also be brought in to compete for the role as third-string goalie.

    At forward there should also be a number changes since several key forwards are still playing for their respective clubs in Europe and not to mention in the NHL/AHL.

    Goaltenders:
    Simon Nielsen - Herning
    Sebastian Dahm – Graz 99ers (EBEL)
    George Sørensen – Almtuna (Allsvenskan)

    Defencemen:
    Jesper Jensen – Jokerit (KHL)
    Oliver Lauridsen – Jokerit (KHL)
    Oliver Gatz – Herning

    Denmark Roster Update

    Two losses for Denmark against Slovakia, but for the most part there are several positive aspects to build on going forward, although failing to score on home-ice is a bit disappointing, at least for the fans attending the games.

    Of bigger concern will be the absence of veteran defenceman Daniel Nielsen, who was injured in the first of the two games and is done for the season due to surgery. Another experienced d-man, Stefan Lassen is reportedly also out, thus at this point the defence will look a bit different compared to last year’s quarterfinal roster.

    The more open question is now whether the coaching staff will turn to the option of including veteran d-men from the Danish Elite League, who previously has played at the IHWC for Denmark or give the chance to some of the younger defencmen already on the roster.

    Either way with the first cuts (see below) having been announced, it should be expected that defencemen Markus Lauridsen and Matias Lassen will be amongst the players named for the two upcoming games against Finland.

    Cuts:
    Mathias Røndbjerg (D) – Rungsted
    Lasse Bo Knudsen (D) – Aalborg *
    Mikkel Højbjerg (F) – Aalborg
    William Boysen (F) – Rungsted
    Martin Højbjerg (F) – Aalborg
    Nikolaj Krag-Christensen (F) – Rögle Jrs. (SuperElit)

    * Not officially, but didn’t play in the games against Slovakia.

    A bit of a concern that two of our veteran d-men are out with injury (Daniel Nielsen & Stefan Lassen) as well as Emil Kristensen likely also out.
    If Philip Larsen also opts out, then we are probably looking at these players being certain:

    Jesper "B" Jensen
    Oliver Lauridsen
    Marcus Lauridsen
    Nicholas B Jensen
    ---------------------
    For the last spots Matias Lassen seems likely, but otherwise it will be pretty open.

    Denmark Denmark – IHWC 2017 – Camp Roster II

    For the two EHC games against Finland 4 forwards and 2 defencemen have been added.

    Denmark is also still without its SHL’ers Jesper Jensen, Nichlas Hardt & Frederik Storm and veteran winger Mads Christensen, who’s playing in the DEL finals.

    With the regular season in the NHL having come to an end and the AHL playoffs almost set, attention will turn to the availability of Denmark’s NHL/AHL players.

    From the NHL Frans Nielsen (declined), Nikolaj Ehlers (confirmed) and Philip Larsen could be available as their respective teams have failed to make the playoffs.

    At the AHL-level forward Nicklas Jensen could also be available, but there’s also the possibility that he will be recalled as reserves by the Rangers for the Stanley Cup playoffs.

    Goaltenders:
    Simon Nielsen - Herning
    Sebastian Dahm – Graz 99ers (EBEL)
    George Sørensen – Almtuna (Allsvenskan)

    Defencemen:
    Jesper Jensen – Jokerit (KHL)
    Oliver Lauridsen – Jokerit (KHL)
    Markus Lauridsen – Leksands (SHL)
    Matias Lassen – Mora (Allsvenskan)
    Oliver Gatz – Herning
    Mads Larsen – AIK (Allsvenskan)
    Nicolai Weichel – Rungsted
    Emil Kristensen - Linköping (SHL)

    Forwards:
    Mathias Bau Hansen – Frederikshavn
    Peter Regin - Jokerit (KHL)
    Nicolai Meyer - Tingsryd (Allsvenskan)
    Morten Poulsen - Pelicans (Liiga)
    Mathias From - Rögle (SHL)

    Denmark EHC 2017 - Game 3+4 – 13 & 15 April

    Finland - Denmark 3-0 (0-0,1-0,2-0)
    SOG: 30-10, PIM: 6-6, Att: 3464

    Finland - Denmark 2-3 OT (0-1,1-0,1-1,0-1)
    0-1 Morten Madsen (Jesper B. Jensen, Peter Regin) PP
    1-2 Mathias Lassen
    2-3 Morten Green
    SOG: 28-20, PIM: 6-6, Att: 4295

    A couple of good showings by Denmark against Finland and after failing to score a goal three games in row, they finally managed to do so in yesterday’s game and also picked up the first win in this year’s EHC.

    On the downside Denmark might have lost forward Mathias From, who was injured in the 2nd game and from the look of things could be sidelined for some time.

    In terms of roster moves for the games against Norway, likely additions could include Malmö forwards Nichlas Hardt & Frederik Storm while Nikolaj Ehlers is also expected to join the team.

    Outside those three, it’s perhaps more of an open question if any additional skaters are added at this point since both Mads Christensen & Jesper Jensen are still unavailable and the Danish finals are still underway, although Esbjerg could secure the title later today.

    NHL Larsen opts out

    Denmark will once again have to do without defenceman Philip Larsen, who for a third straight IHWC has opted out, hence today’s announcement is hardly that surprising.

    In other news, Edmonton Oilers’ prospect Patrick Russell is expected to join traning camp sometime next week.

    Much like the games against Slovakia and Finland, a pretty consistent showing by Denmark against Norway in the sense that after a so-so performance in the first game, Denmark stepped up in second game and got the win, although some areas (powerplay, play in the defensive zone) still will have to improve going forward.

    For the upcoming games against Switzerland it has been confirmed that EHC München winger Mads Christensen will join team and with the San Jose Sharks out the NHL playoffs wingers Jannik Hansen and Mikkel Bødker could be available for this year’s tournament, while Nicklas Jensen’s participation seems very unlikely since the New York Rangers are through to the next round.

    Denmark EHC 2017 - Game 7+8 – 26 & 28 April

    Switzerland - Denmark 4-5 (3-1,1-2,0-2)
    1-1 Patrick Russell (Nichlas Hardt, Nikolaj Ehlers) PP
    3-2 Morten Poulsen (Nicolai Meyer, Jesper Jensen)
    3-3 Emil Kristensen (Nikolaj Ehlers, Peter Regin)

    4-5 Peter Regin (Jesper Jensen, Nikolaj Ehlers)
    SOG: 29-32, PIM: 12-16, Att: 3027

    Switzerland - Denmark 2-0 (0-0,1-0,1-0)
    SOG: 21-33, PIM: 12-4, Att: 3300

    Denmark finishes this year’s EHC with a win and a loss against Switzerland, the win being quite significant for Danish hockey as this is the first time that Denmark has won in regulation over the Swiss. The game could however have gone both ways with Denmark having trouble staying out of the penalty box and with the PK struggling. On the positive side of things, Denmark did manage to make a comeback, get the win and not to mention score 5 games.

    The second game is said to have been a close one, but once again Denmark failed to score any goals and the PP also went 0 for 6.

    As the SHL finals will conclude later today, center Jesper Jensen could be joining Denmark sometime next week.

    From NA there are still a few options remaining (NHL’er Lars Eller and AHL’ers Nicklas Jensen, Mikkel Aagaard & Patrick Bjorkstrand) but whether any of these players will be joining Denmark at some point remains to be seen.

    Denmark Roster Update

    Stockton Heat (AHL) forward Mikkel Aagaard has been added to the Danish roster after being cleared to play by the Calgary Flames.

    Denmark will likely wait for the outcome of the Washington-Pittsburgh & Ottawa-New York series before registering the allowed 22 skaters as forwards Lars Eller and Nicklas Jensen could become available mid-tournament.
