With all of the excitement over playoff hockey – you nearly forget that the 2014 IIHF World Championship starts in Belarus on Friday.

There will be a lot of players from the Nashville Predators system competing for their countries. Here is a look as to who will be taking part:

Team Canada: Ryan Ellis

Team Finland: Pekka Rinne, Miikka SalomakiJuuse Saros

Team Sweden: Calle Jarnkrok, Mattias Ekholm

Team Switzerland: Roman Josi, Simon Moser

Team USA: Seth Jones, Craig Smith

The Predators personnel won’t just be limited to what you’re seeing on the ice, either. Team USA will also see the likes of assistant coach Phil Housley and video coordinator Lawrence Feloney join their ranks in Belarus.

To get a better sense of schedule, rosters, groups, etc – I recommend giving the official IIHF website a proper shakedown. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to track down the latest Suomi jersey and get it customized with Salomaki’s name and number.

Will you be tuning in for the 2014 Worlds tournament? Are you excited to see some current Admirals representing their countries? How do you think they will fair in the tournament?

  1. If Pekka gets hurt in this tournament, Poile should join Trotz on the unemployment line.
