    Hi guys,

    Just a quick question. Does anyone know how the eligibility for playing for national teams works?

    E.g. Say player A is a national of country X and country Y, but would like to represent country Z (for whatever reason). Assuming he obtained citizenship of country Z, but played for country X (or Y) first would that make him ineligible to play for Z?

    Sorry about the X/Y/Z stuff.
     
  2. I am not sure. I have not taken algebra in 20+ years.

    :naughty:

    The player would have to play four consecutive seasons in country Z without playing in an IIHF event again for country X or Y over that time period. From the IIHF website...
