Switzerland will play the United States, Slovakia will face off against Finland, Germany will face the Czech Republic, and Sweden will test Canada.

Recall that the tournament is held without the participation of Russian hockey players.

The quarter-finals will take place on May 26.

Earlier, the Chairman of the Board of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation (FHR), Arkady Rotenberg, said that the 2022 World Hockey Championship without the participation of the Russian national team does not look very good.
