Belarus’ team gearing up for 2014 IIHF World Championship

Belarus’ national ice hockey team under head coach Glen Hanlon held a training camp at Minsk Arena ahead of the 2014 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship. The first training session took place on 31 March, and by 8 April the national team was joined by 22 players. Among them is Andrei Kostitsyn, Vladimir Denisov, Vitaly Koval, Konstantin Koltsov and other leaders of the national team. Andrei Mezin, Nikolai Stasenko and Yevgeny Kovyrshin joined the team when their clubs completed their performance in the KHL Nadezhda Cup tournament. Dinamo Minsk goalie Kevin Lalande will play for the Belarusian national ice hockey team for the first time at the world championship. The Canadian-born goaltender had a successful debut for Belarus in the final game against Switzerland at the Arosa Challenge tournament. The Belarusian team will hold seven matches ahead of the 2014 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship: six friendlies as part of the European Ice Hockey Challenge and one game against Denmark (Minsk, 3 May). Before leaving for Lillehammer, Norway, head coach Glen Hanlon spoke to media about the general mood in the team, the forthcoming games, players that will join the team and, of course, Belarus’ chances at the 2014 IIHF World Championship.
