Slovakian hockey representatives are waiting for two training units this week in Bratislava.
Together with the trainers, they will finalize the last details and on Wednesday they will fly to Riga, Latvia. Training awaits them at the world championship venue that day.
They will probably appear at the WC without goalkeeper Jaroslav Halák, but the final decision will be made in the next few hours.
All 25 players reported to coach Craig Ramsay at Monday’s meeting. The final nomination was published by the implementation team after Saturday’s match in Trenčín, in which the Slovaks defeated the Austrians 4:3.
Defender Michal Beň and forwards Maroš Jedlička and Adrián Holešinský were the last to be cut from the squad by the coaches.
The management of the national team will wait to see how the situation develops regarding the arrival of defender Šimon Nemec from New Jersey.
Halák from the New York Rangers is also in the game, but Slovakia’s assistant coach Peter Frühauf said that the 37-year-old goalkeeper probably won’t strengthen the Slovak team: “It’s not definitive yet. We communicate with each other all the time, but it seems rather that he will not strengthen us.’
After training on the ice on Monday, the Slovaks will prepare for the dry season on Tuesday, as the custodians will fly to Latvia with their equipment on Monday night.Read more The Swiss report significant reinforcements at the World Cup.

“After this training on dry land, we will give the guys a day off, we fly on Wednesday,” added Frühauf.
It is questionable how much training the defender Martin Gernát will undergo. The Slovak defender suffered an injury during training in Austria and was waiting for the results of the magnetic resonance imaging.
“Mother is better now. It’s a painful injury, but he’s feeling better now. His participation is not at risk,” assistant Frühauf informed.
