After the Devils dropped out of the NHL playoffs, forward Nico Hischier and defender Jonas Siegenthaler are going to reinforce the national team at the World Championship. They have received the green light from their club. Timo Meier, who is still without a contract for the next season, cannot participate.

With Tim Berni, another NHL player is already in Riga but has not been registered yet. For now, he will stay with the team. "If another player gets injured, we can still nominate him," Lars Weibel, Director of National Teams, says.
