2012 (Ice) Hockey World Championships.


Recommended Posts

The 2012 IIHF World Championships (Ice) hockey will be co-hosted by Sweden and Finland between May 4 and May 20.

Group A (Helsinki)

Belarus

Canada

Finland

France

Kazakhstan

Slovakia

Switzerland

USA

Group B (Stockholm)

Czech Republic

Denmark

Germany

Italy

Latvia

Norway

Russia

Sweden

Clearly Group B is the easier group, and do keep in mind this tournament provides qualification points for the 2014 Olympics. ATM Slovakia would miss the Sochi Olympics.

2013 Will also be co-hosted by Sweden and Finland, 2014 will go to Belarus for the first time, 2015 to Czech Republic and 2016 to Russia. For 2017 Denmark and France/Germany (Co-host bid) are bidding.

So how are the teams structured? Basically where do they get their players? Especially USA and Canada?

All of Canada and I believe USA are made up of NHL players whose teams never made the playoffs or were eliminated in the first round.
