Huge news and boost for Slovenia,

the "wonder podigy" from Hrušica, Anže Kopitar will play for Slovenia, the LA Kings superstar accepted the invitation and will join :SLO team the last week before the tournament :thumbup:

this is good, but we will be without jan muršak,aleš mušič,mitja robar(finished international carier),injured are jan urbas,žiga jeglič and žiga pavlin.

so we are without 6 great players who means a lot in our small country

Belarus will be without doubt the top favorite of the tournament, but the battle for the second spot should be open, between :SLO:HUN and host :KAZ Kopitar may be the decisive difference factor for Slovenia.
