Club IIHF World Championship 2017



Featuring!: A despondent royalblue, because Leon Draisaitl is too busy losing to the Mighty Ducks to participate in this tournament, for now.

Quote:
The 2017 IIHF World Championship will be hosted by Paris, France, and Cologne, Germany, from 5 to 21 May 2017.

The official tournament mascots are Asterix and Obelix, the main characters from the popular French comic book series The Adventures of Asterix.


Well ok then.

Quote:
The logo incorporates the silhouette of deceased German national team goaltender Robert Müller, who succumbed to a brain tumor at just 28 years of age.


RIP

Quote:
German tennis player Angelique Kerber, 1. FC Köln and German Olympic soccer team goalkeeper Timo Horn and Paris Saint-Germain F.C.'s Brazilian winger Lucas Moura have been named celebrity ambassadors for the event.
Kool.

Quote:
The official tournament anthem is "Playground" by German dance music group Cascada.


Well I'm ready for some hockey!
(and hopefully that cheered up royalblue)



Group A:



All games will be played at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany.




Starring!:

Nikolaj Ehlers (Denmark)




Tobias Rieder (Germany)




I haven't heard of a single player on Team Italy, so let's just skip them...


All-Name All-Star Zemgus Girgensons (Latvia)




Nikita Kucherov (Russia)




Yeesh, the Slovakian team looking weak as hell too. Only 1 guy under 24yo, none of them playing in the NHL, AHL, KHL, or Swiss league, know of like none of them. Slovak hockey confirmed kinda dead.


Victor Hedman (Sweden)




Johnny Gaudreau (United States)





Group B:



All games will be played at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris, France.



(there's an arena in there somewhere legend has it)


Starring!:

Sergei Kostitsyn (Belarus)




Nathan MacKinnon (Canada)




David Pastrňák (Czech Republic)




Sebastian Aho (Finland)




Antoine Roussel (France)




Andreas Martinsen (Norway)




Jan Muršak (Slovenia)




Denis Malgin (Switzerland)





Full rosters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_I...onship_rosters



Let us puck.

Finns seem kinda weak this year, like where's LAINE. Only thing I know is that Russia will finish 4th in this tournament.

Re: IIHF World Championship 2017

In

Asterix & Obelix are great choices as mascots btw, that comic has done more for french-german friendship than all politicians combined

From what I'm heating the Latvians have already drained the city from most of its beer reserves.

Still tons of tickets available for most matches but that's to be expected in a 20k arena...

Re: IIHF World Championship 2017

People in Riga here are treating IIHF like it's the biggest sporting event in history. The beer gardens were packed with people watching their game against Denmark today.

They won 3-0

Re: IIHF World Championship 2017

Feel bad for the Belarus goalie, stones Pasta on a breakaway, teammates let Voracek bury the rebound and he gets pulled

Blr with 5 shots through 50 minutes

Pasta slipped in OT and gave Aho a breakaway from his own faceoff circle in. LOL

'chicken is pretty lethal in tournaments when Sid is busy


also Tyson Barrie done for the tournament, will be interesting to see who they can get to replace
apparently they were trying to get Brent Burns to come over earlier, he seems reluctant though

Re: IIHF World Championship 2017

Hope we get Grubauer, with Greiss injured we can use it. His backup Aus den Birken spit out two huge rebounds that let Denmark tie the game within 25 seconds
