They give the Swiss team but not the others, Damn it.
Can't find another site that does yet.
If your still up, Per. Can you find anything on the other teams?
Moving it to this forum instead.

Normally this is a four-nation tournament for Finland, Sweden, Russia and the Czech Republic, but since it's an Olympic year and the NHL are refusing their players to attend, Canada wanted in on the action and then Switzerland was added too, to make it an even number.

Sweden's roster: http://www.swehockey.se/globalassets/sv ... v_2017.pdf

Finland's roster: http://www.swehockey.se/globalassets/sv ... roster.pdf

Czech roster: http://www.swehockey.se/globalassets/sv ... t_2017.pdf

Didn't find the Russian roster, but I'll come back to that.

OK, here's the Russian roster: http://www.tilastopalvelu.fi/ih/seriero ... 57&lang=en

And I guess this is the official site of the tournament, with all rosters, box scores, standings, etc:
http://www.leijonat.fi/maajoukkueet/a-m ... -2017.html

The tournament is a bit odd this year; eventhough there's six teams participating, each team will just play three games. I asssume it's because this is basically meant to be just a long weekend tournament. As a four nation tournament it works, now that there are more teams, it will be a bit of a lottery. Then again, no one really cares about winning this tournament; this is just a chance to try out your team and prepare for the "real" tournaments later this season. Well, that, and marketing the Karjala brand of beer, of course.

Not my favourite, really. If you have to drink Finnish beer, I'd rather go with Lapin Kulta.

Freaking Mason Raymond ran our goalie behind the goal, but we still prevailed, 2-0 for Sweden.

A bit depressing though that this is the level of hockey we will have to make do with at the Olympics. :(
