2018 IIHF World Championships Preview

The World Championship is essentially a consolation prize for players whose seasons ended early. That being said, free hockey is free hockey, and many of the world’s top players will still be competing. If your team bowed out of the playoff picture early but you’ve still got the hockey jones, here is what you need to know for the World Championships.

The competition is divided into two groups and seeded based on IIHF world rankings. The top four teams in round robin group play then advance to the elimination rounds. Out of Group A we have Austria, Belarus, Czech Republic, France, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland, and Sweden. Naturally Sweden and Russia will be favorites to emerge from this group. Beyond these perennial powerhouses, the Czech Republic and Slovakia look the next most likely to advance.

On the other half of the tournament bracket, Group B is comprised of Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Norway, South Korea, and the United States. Canada, Finland, and the United States are virtual locks to advance. However, fourth place in the group is far more up grabs. Any one of Norway, Germany, or Denmark could be in line for a quarterfinal berth. But let’s take a deeper dive into how this tournament may shake up.

Canada will of course be the favorite heading into the tournament, and will look to pair a world championship with their world junior championship title from earlier this year. The Canadian roster naturally will not at be full strength, but they will bring their fair share of A-listers with them to Denmark; the most important of which is talisman, Connor McDavid. In addition to two time the art ross trophy winner, Canada’s lineup also includes names like Aaron Ekblad, Matt Barzal, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Brayden Schenn, Bo Horvat,  and Jaden Schwartz among others. Canada’s B team still represents the most star-studded lineup in this competition, and as such they will open as betting favorites. But that could all change after the tournament opens with rivalry matchup against the United States.

Like the Canadians, the Americans will also bring a squad full of top tier NHL talent to Denmark. The biggest name of the bunch is Blackhawks superstar Patrick Kane. Along with the former MVP, the American’s roster is also highlighted by players like Johnny Gaudreau, Dylan Larkin, and Cam Atkinson. Both the United State and Canada boast their fair share of fire power on offense. This should make for incredible matchup when these two titans clash on opening day of the tournament. Something tells me this won’t be the only time these two meet in this competition as both teams are expected to medal.

Sweden is another team that should be in medal contention. The Swedes will be the favorite out of group A because of the amount of talent they’ll be bringing to this tournament. This is one of the deeper teams not only in the group, but in the entire tournament. However, the Swedish are lacking the kind of elite star power that the United State and Canada are bring to the table. Nevertheless, the roster does include names like Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Hampus Lindholm , Rickard Rakell, Mika Zibanejad, Gustav Nyquist, and John Kilingberg. Additionally, highly touted prospects Elias Pettersson and Lias Andersson will also be looking to make their mark this tournament. In short, the Swedes are more than equipped to make a run in this tournament, and anything less than an appearance on the podium would be a disappointment.

Finland’s lineup isn’t nearly as deep as the three teams we just mentioned, although a medal is still well within reach. The Fins first line in particular could prove to be lethal. Mikael Granlund will lead the forward line after another solid season with the Minnesota Wild. However, the real scoring threats on this team come in the form of young stars Mikko Rantanen and Sebastian Aho. Offense likely won’t be the problem this team. However, whether or not a defense made up mostly of Finnish domestic league players can stand up players like Patrick Kane or Connor McDavid will be the real question.

Russia the last team we will discuss with any real chance of winning this tournament. Their roster is headlined by Pavel Datsyuk, Evgeny Dadonov, Nikita Gusev, Mikhail Grigorenko, and Pavel Buchnevich. Unfortunately, this team is no where near full strength and won’t feature NHL superstars like Alexander Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin, or Artemi Panarin. Fortunately for the Russians, the country boasts the second best domestic league in the world. The Russian roster features a slew of high level players from the KHL who should make them a more than formidable squad.

The top five teams on the landscape of international hockey are relatively obvious. But beyond the top five the tournament picture gets a bit murkier. The Czech Republic is the next most relevant hockey nation in this pool. Yet the roster they’re bringing to Denmark doesn’t exactly inspire fear. Tomas Plekanec is the biggest name on this roster along with some other familiar faces. However, more focus will likely be on the play of young prospects Filip Chytill and Martin Necas. I wouldn’t expect an appearance on the podium from this team but they are well capable of making some noise.

Behind the Czechs, the pecking order will likely be some combination of Slovakia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, and Denmark. The Germans would be my pick of the litter for the reason that Leon Draisaitl will be in the lineup. Not to mention the fact that Germans are fresh off of a silver medal run in the olympics. Nonetheless, i wouldn’t expect anyone in this group to trouble the traditional powerhouses. Below we have a look at the full rosters of every team involved in this tournament.
