STOCKHOLM/HELSINKI – The national teams from Denmark, Finland and Slovakia added players prior to the games on Friday.

With the addition of Jensen, the Danes have now a full roster.
Finland added its third goalkeeper Atte Engren of TPS Turku and can still register an additional skater.
Slovakia filled its roster by adding defenceman Ivan Svarny from Slovak KHL team Slovan Bratislava and forward Marcel Hascak from HC Kosice.
