Goaltender Anton Khudobin and forward Andrei Loktionov will represent Russia, while goaltender Justin Peters will compete for the Canadian national team.

Making his first appearance in the annual tournament, Khudobin joins Sergei Bobrovsky and Andrei Vasilevski in net for Russia. Khudobin’s previous international resume consists of two world junior championships, the most recent of which was in 2005-6, and an under-18 tournament. This is Loktionov’s second straight World Championship appearance. He logged an assist and a plus-six rating in seven tournament games last year.

Peters, who is making his international competition debut with his home country, was added to Team Canada’s roster on April 28, joining the goaltending rotation of James Reimer and Ben Scrivens.

Additionally, Hurricanes defensive prospect Michal Jordan will make his World Championship debut with the Czech Republic. Paul Branecky has more on that here.

With Canada in Group A and Russia in Group B, the two teams will not face each other in the seven-game preliminary round, which runs from May 9 through May 20. After quarterfinal and semifinal play, the tournament concludes with the bronze and gold medal games on May 25.

NBCSN will carry all Team USA preliminary round games live, in addition to airing the quarterfinals, semifinals and medal games either live or on tape delay. TSN will carry all of Team Canada's games, and the IIHF offers a tournament subscription with certain georestrictions on select games.

We’ll keep this blog current as the preliminary round progresses. Check back for regular score updates and more.
