The national team will practice and prepare for the World Championship at the OYM for the entire preparation phase, thus until May 12. This upcoming weekend (Friday and Saturday), the national team will face Russia in two exhibition games.

Simon Moser, who usually figures on the list of invited players, will not play in this World Championship as his second child will be born in the upcoming weeks. Denis Malgin is also not present, because the national team has not (yet) received the go-ahead from the Toronto Maple Leafs.
