    A new tournament in April 2019. Participants Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway. Should be fun with more then two competitive Nordic countries now. Also practise for the World championships. Not playing against the same EHT-countries all the time. Good practise. Finland struggeled against these medium tier teams in World Championships and didn't actually meet any EHT teams at all.

    Will this be something resembling a EHT team for each?

    Will be your typical april tournament with rosters containing average SHL players mixed with some younger kids. Sweden played back to back games against Denmark this year and Belarus last year, this will replace those games.

    Denmark's competitiveness largely relies on their NA-based players.

    I'm well aware of their player pool. It's just not very deep.

    Poor Iceland got left out :naughty:. They could invite Latvia also. If we can't win a medal in World championships, atleast we can in this competition :D

    Well, one does not look like the others. Wrap your heads around this.

    Norway's best U29 forwards, Olsen and Trettenes, clip lower in the Allsvenskan than Nicolai Meyer, who didn't make the Danish roster.
