Slovaks end at the championship

The match against Denmark was also the last for the Slovak team at this year’s championship.

The national team started with a surprise victory against the US, but did not live up to the high expectations in the matches that followed. Even though they performed well in the matches against Finland and Canada, they lost both matches. After that, they were no longer able to collect enough points to make it to the quarterfinals.

As a result, they will not advance from the preliminary group for the sixth time in a row.
