Sweden’s team includes a 17-year-old Rasmus Dahlin, who might be the next big star on the NHL! Together with Dahlin the team has been filled with players who have lots of experience on the international games.
Finland’s team consist players from Finnish league, KHL and SHL, together with Lajunen, Pyörälä and Erkinjuntti who make their living in Switzerland’s NLA. Eeli Tolvanen has been sensational during this season on Jokerit and the whole country is expecting him to continue scoring goals for the national team!
Team Canada has been built mostly of KHL- players, but there are also some players from North-Americas University teams and from the Swiss and Swedish leagues. The players have great opportunity to show what they got while the Olympics are approaching.
Team Russia has new faces combined with a bit more experienced players, the oldest player in the team is 36 years old Sergei Mozyak, who is still holding the record as all-time highest scorer in the KHL. Last year Russia did won the Karjala-cup, what will happen this year?
Czech Republic has combined their team mostly from players with experience, who are currently playing on KHL and ELH, but there is also Libor Sulak, who is playing on Lahti Pelicans on the season 2017-2018.
