    Finland wins both their matches. The big question is what happens between Norway and Denmark. Denmark have had better results but their group is probably weaker. If Denmark wins it's over. If Norway wins it means the game between Belarus and Norway decides who stays and who goes.

    Has anyone had the opportunity to see Peter Regin (I think this is his name) from Denmark and can share some insight on his game and possible draft position?

    Argh. I just wrote a long reply and it timed out on me.

    Anyway, in summary, Regin is a speedy forward who's been a revelation this year in the Danish league and for the national team, too. He's always enthusiastic and willing to learn, and this has helped him fit in on his league team, where he has won himself lots of icetime this season (and ended up getting the 'Youngster of the Year' award for the league), and on all three international levels (U18, U20, and senior).
    Recently there have been rumours of a possible move to a Swedish team or possibly even the CHL, but Regin hasn't confirmed anything - keeping his options open.
    He's undoubtedly Denmark's biggest talent in this draft class, but I wouldn't try to guess at his draft position. His U18 WC performance has definitely helped him a lot, though, and playing at the top level here was a chance that Danish prospects (f.x. Franz Nielsen) haven't had in the past years.

    He turns 18 tomorrow :)
