Index – Sports – Two NHL hockey champions will definitely come to Budapest

Following the closing day of the NHL regular season on Thursday, St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington and the Buffalo Sabres' top three players, Owen Power, Bowen Byram and Dylan Cousins, met. They also indicated that they will participate with the Canadian national team in the Elite World Championships in the Czech Republic – Canadian sports channel TSN reported.

Binnington was an NHL champion in 2019 as a player for the St. Louis Blues, and Byram got to lift the sport's noblest trophy in 2022 as a hockey player for the Colorado Avalanche.

The 21-year-old Power was the No. 1 pick of the 2021 draft, and that same year already won a world championship title with the Canadian national team, which in 2022 was only sixth at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

The Hungarian and Canadian teams will face off at the MVM Dome on May 7, and this will be the last preparation match for the foreign teams before the World Cup in the Czech Republic from May 10 to 26. The Canadians will play the Austrians in Vienna on May 5.

Last week, the Hungarian national team played preparatory matches in Poland, this time with the host of Group A, and was defeated 5-2 and 6-2, respectively. On Friday and Saturday, we will also face an elite opponent, Norway, but now here in our home country: Séchévérvár and the new Hungarian ice hockey gem, Alba Arena, will undergo a baptism of fire with this doubles match, and Fehérvár AV19 will play their home matches from the fall.

For the Hungarian national team, the season ends with a celebratory match against Canada, and the two teams also played against each other last year in a fantastic and memorable match at the MVM Dome, although our team could also have been preparing for Group A at the time. .
