2015 World Championship Schedule Released

worlds-medals
The IIHF has released a new microsite for the 2015 World Championship in Prague and Ostrava, Czechia, iihfworlds2015.com, and with it released the full schedule for the World Championship in May. Russia opens its World Championship Gold defence against Norway in Ostrava on opening night, with the hopes this game will also be for the International Hockey Lineal Championship as well.

With the IHLC now on the Euro Hockey Tour, pending a change during a Euro Hockey Challenge or Exhibition game, the title will either enter the Worlds in the possession of Russia, Finland (who faces the United States on 1 May in Ostrava), or either Sweden or the Czechs, who face each other in Prague on opening night.
