The Latvian national team is in the first place in the world championship of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), which is created after each round of the match, making it to the semi-finals for the first time in its history.

During IIHF world championships, the so-called power rankings are repeatedly broadcast, listing all 16 teams competing in that tournament.

This ranking order is not dependent on the actual ranking of the IIHF and may change on a single game basis.

In addition, IIHF representatives treat this ranking with some humor and allocate a specific accompanying text for each team.

The Latvian national team jumped to 3rd place after reaching the quarter-finals, but their success against Sweden gave Latvia a final qualifying victory.

Representatives of the IIHF write next to Latvia’s position this time: “Šilov saves us, Mix creates magic!”

Latest Power Ranking:

  1. Latvia
  2. Canada
  3. United States of America
  4. Germany
  5. Switzerland
  6. Sweden
  7. Finland
  8. Czech Republic
  9. Slovakia
  10. Denmark
  11. Kazakhistan
  12. in France
  13. Norway
  14. Austria
  15. Hungary
  16. Slovenia

The Latvian national team will face the Canadian national team at 14:20 in the semi-finals of the world championship on Saturday.
