Montreal Canadiens prospect Martin Reway is playing in his second World Hockey Championships, as is Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby. Team Canada is looking to win gold for the first time since 2007 and is rolling out an all-star set of forwards to help in the quest.
The attendance of NHL stars is higher for Team Canada than in recent years, in part because the event starts later and in part because Prague is an attractive place to travel to. The American team has struggled to get any player to commit to the team and the result is a very young team that includes the second youngest player, and the first pre-draft eligible player to play in the senior Men's World Championships in the draft era.

Although the Montreal Canadiens are still in the playoffs, one of their prospects will be representing his country at the Men's World Hockey Championships. Martin Reway will join the Slovakian National Team for the second year in a row. As a 19 year old last year, Reway had three assists in seven games. Reway makes the Slovakian team after finishing his first season in the Czech Extraliga, where he won rookie of the year, and finished third in points per game out of players that played in 15 or more games.
