In the last few seconds, an official announcement was made concerning the young forward from the Montreal Canadiens, Juraj Slafkovsky.

It was the most likely rumor, and the worst kept secret, but Slafkovsky has officially been added to Slovakia's roster for the 2024 Ice Hockey World Championship.

He will join Cole Caufield, who will also finally participate in the traditional spring tournament.

We are really looking forward to seeing him in action, and he will surely be a worthy representative of his country! Slaf is likely to be THE big player for his club.
