COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Canada Hockey announced today 24 players who will comprise the 2022 U.S. Men’s National Team which will compete in the 2022 International Ice Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship May 13-29 in Tampere and Helsinki, Finland.
"We've got a great group of players who we know will represent our country extremely well at the world championship," said Ryan Martin, general manager of the 2022 U.S. Men's National Team and also the assistant general manager of the New York Rangers. "As with all teams Canada Hockey puts on the ice at any level, our goal is to bring back the gold medal and we look forward to the challenge ahead."
Nylander wasn’t the only recent arrival to make a big impact. Jacob Peterson, who came here after the end of the season in Dallas, scored twice. Rasmus Asplund matched that and Lucas Wallmark, Sweden’s leading scorer at the Olympics, opened his account here. Max Fribeg was also on target for the Tre Kronor, while Tobias Fladeby, one of several Norwegian players based in Sweden, got a consolation effort at the other end.
Despite the big names on display, it looked as though Sweden’s first goal had come not from a high-profile arrival but from then team's unheralded fourth line. Nils Aman had the puck in the net, but his wraparound effort was called back after a bench challenge: Norway’s Petter Thoresen correctly felt that Oskar Lang’s presence on the crease interfered with goaltender Jonas Arntzen’s ability to do his job.
The first period was the most enthralling 20 minutes of this year’s tournament so far. Hands down. More than most games. It ended 3-3 and was full of emotion thanks to the crowd, which started the chanting during a special pre-game ceremony to honour Ambuhl and never let up.
Soon after the opening faceoff, they were whistling, however, because one of their own, Timo Meier, incurred a major penalty for boarding. But then they were cheering soon after because the best chances during that Canada advantage were had, in fact, by the Swiss. Goalie Logan Thompson had to be sharp on good shots from Michael Fora and Pius Suter, making a quick toe save off the latter.
Canada went ahead a second time at 14:11, scoring short-handed. Adam Lowry collected the puck at his blue line off a turnover, and as he went in on goal he lost control of the puck on the deke. The move fooled Genoni all the same and the puck slid between the goalie’s pads.
And for a second time the Swiss responded quickly. Dean Kukan got the puck in the slot and waited patiently as he moved left, and near the goal line he roofed a shot over Thompson’s shoulder to the short side.
And for a third time the Swiss responded, this time off a faceoff win in the Canada zone on a set play. Denis Malgin won the puck back to Suter at the top of the circle, and he fed Jonas Siegenthaler moving in from the left. He beat Thompson with just 8.4 seconds remaining.
The Swiss carried their momentum over to a much more controlled second. They went ahead for the first time in the game at 6:13 on the power play when Hischier snapped another high shot, short side, this time glove side, but even more impressive was how the Swiss contained Canada the rest of the period. Genoni had few difficult chances, and his mates kept the game under control.
Trailing 3-1 midway through the game, Latvia scored three consecutive power-play goals and defeated Great Britain in the penultimate game for each team in the group stage of the 2022 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.
In doing so, Latvia assures its place in next year’s top tournament and avoids an uncomfortable situation where they could have been playing to avoid relegation on Tuesday. At the same time, it keeps alive Latvia’s quarter-final hopes. Latvia now has eight points, trailing the Canada and Czechia, who are tied for third and fourth in Group B with 10 each.
“We played a tough side today and we came out a little too passive but I’m very happy about the team, the effort, the belief we have in the room that we don’t let the game slip away,” said Latvian captain Rodrigo Abols. “Then we came back and won the game. I guess it’s exciting to watch but we don’t really want games like this. We have these games all through the tournament and it takes a lot of energy from you mentally and that translates into physically because the whole game is in a stress because it’s so tight, every little mistake can cost the game.”
As for Great Britain, any points they could have taken from this game would have improved their situation for tomorrow’s all-important last game against Austria. Nonetheless, the Brits are still alive but they need a regulation win to avoid relegation.
