The 2022 IIHF World Championship is set to start Friday, May 13, in Finland with 16 countries competing for a gold medal.

Players on NHL teams that did not make the playoffs or have been knocked out may play in the tournament for their country. While it's not like the Olympics with the best players from every nation, it is still quality hockey that fans can watch when the NHL playoffs aren't on.

Some notable names in the 2022 tournament are Mat Barzal, Pierre-Luc Dubois, Thomas Chabot, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Rasmus Dahlin and Seth Jones.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the 2022 IIHF World Championship.

Who is playing in the 2022 IIHF World Championship?

This year, 16 teams are participating in the IIHF World Championship. They are split up into two groups of eight.

The IIHF has suspended all Russia and Belarus national teams from competing in international tournaments, so they will not be competing in this tournament. France and Austria have taken their place.

The 2022 IIHF Men’s World Hockey Championship begins in Finland on Friday.

The host Finns, the defending Olympic champions, look to win their second gold in the past three years. Canada made history at last year’s tournament, becoming the first team to win after starting 0-3, and looks to repeat as gold medallists for the first time since 2015-16.

Catch the first games of the IIHF World Hockey Championship, France vs. Slovakia and USA vs. Latvia, on Friday at 9 a.m. ET/ 6 a.m. PT on TSN1, the TSN App, and TSN Direct. Canada takes on Germany at 1 p.m. ET/ 10 a.m. PT on TSN1/4, the TSN App, and TSN Direct.

The Canadian roster is potentially even stronger this year, boasting a one-two punch of New York Islanders centre Matt Barzal, and Winnipeg Jets centre Pierre-Luc Dubois down the middle. Claude Julien returns behind the bench, after coaching Canada to a sixth-place finish at the 2022 Beijing Olympics. Canada has never failed to make the playoffs at the World Championship.

Finland enters the tournament as favourites following their gold-medal performance in Beijing, led by NHL veteran Valtteri Filppula and Montreal Canadiens forward Joel Armia

The United States will try to end its 42-year gold-medal drought at the Olympic or World Championship level, after winning bronze in 2021. The Americans boast a mix of veteran leaders and young prospects on the blueline as New Jersey Devils’ prospect Luke Hughes will play alongside veteran defencemen Seth Jones and Nate Schmidt.

Three of the top-10 prospects in the upcoming 2022 NHL Draft will also showcase their skills in the tournament. Slovakia’s Simon Nemec and Juraj Slafkovsky and Czechia’s David Jiricek will play big roles for their countries at the world championship.

The tournament will take place over 17 days with a 16-team field. The defending champion Canadians, captained by Ottawa Senators defenceman Thomas Chabot, headline Group A alongside Germany, Switzerland, Slovakia, Denmark, Kazakhstan, Italy and France.

Group B consists of host Finland, the United States, Czechia, and Sweden as well as Latvia, Norway, Great Britain, and Austria.

Notably absent from the field is Russia, as the IIHF suspended the country from participation in tournaments “until further notice” after Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine in late February.

The men’s hockey worlds conclude on Sunday, May 29, with the gold-medal game. The entirety of the 64-game tournament can be seen on TSN.
