According to several sources, including an excellent Finnish media, it's official. Russia and Belarus will be thrown out of the IIHF in a few hours.

Russia and Belarus will therefore be excluded from all international hockey events. Everything should be announced this evening via an official press release.

TSN's Darren Dreger adds that this was expected yesterday and that "replacement teams" will be considered.
