World Cup 2016: i roster

Sono stati ufficializzati i roster delle otto squadre che prenderanno parte alla World Cup. La manifestazione, organizzata dalla NHL, torna a disputarsi a distanza di dodici anni e avrà luogo all’Air Canada Center di Toronto il prossimo settembre.
La formula del torneo prevede un turno preliminare suddiviso in due gruppi da quattro squadre. Il gruppo è composto da Canada, Repubblica Ceca, Stati Uniti e il Team Europa. Il B è formato da Russia, Finlandia, Svezia e Nord America, quest’ultimo formato da giocatori canadesi e statunitensi. Le prime due  di ogni raggruppamento accederanno alle semifinali giocare in gara secca. Le finali, al meglio delle tre gare, sono in programma dal 27 settembre.
