The 2016 World Cup of Hockey was an international ice hockey tournament. It was the third installment of the National Hockey League (NHL)-sanctioned competition, 12 years after the second World Cup of Hockey in 2004. It began on September 17 and ended no later than October 1, 2016.

Teams Edit

The teams were officially announced on September 10, 2015 by the International Ice Hockey Federation. The teams are:[2]

  • United States (24-and-over players) - host
  • Canada (24-and-over players) — host
  • Czech Republic
  • Finland
  • Russia
  • Sweden
  • Europe
  • North America

National anthems Edit

The national anthem for each team playing was played before the start of each game. However, there are two exceptions: no anthem was played for Team Europe because of the team's multiple national representatives, while both "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "O Canada" were played before games Team North America played.

Rosters Edit

For more details on this topic, see 2016 World Cup of Hockey rosters.

Each team's roster is limited to twenty skaters (forwards and defencemen) and three goaltenders. All eight participating teams submitted their initial roster of sixteen players on March 2, 2016.
