    Here are a list of players in the WJC tournament that are either eligible in 2005, 2006, or have gone undrafted in the years they were eligible. The rosters from Switzerland, Belarus, Slovakia, and Germany are off the WJC official website, cuts may have been made and players off those lists may not participate in the tournament.

    This thread can be helpful for those fans that will be attending the games in North Dakota or watching some of the games on TSN. It may give them an idea of who's available.

    Undrafted players are listed as "Undrafted" along with the year in which they were eligible to enter the NHL draft. Some players like Anton Belov of Russia and Linus Persson of Sweden opted not to register their names and make themselves eligible for personal reasons... other players were overlooked. European players must be drafted to come over to North America to play professional hockey (NHL, AHL), North American players do not have to be drafted.

    Ah, Finland sucks this year. I wouldn't even have the courage to watch the beatings, but I wan't to see Laakso play, so I probably will.

    Looking forward to U18 already.

    Having done this thread, it now leaves me with all these wierd European names in my head... I was watching the Canada/Switzerland game on Wednesday and was familiar with every single Swiss players name.

    It's strange.
