Five Kings players competing in IIHF Men's Worlds

Five Kings players have headed overseas to represent their countries in this year's IIHF Men's World Championship.

The latest Kings player to join his national team for this year's IIHF Men's Worlds Championship is Kevin Fiala. Fiala has played in five prior Worlds for Switzerland, most recently in 2019. He captured silver with Switzerland in 2018, losing to a Swedish team that included Lias Andersson, Viktor Arvidsson, and Adrian Kempe.

Fiala joins Carl Grundstrom, Cal Petersen, TJ Tynan, and Martin Chromiak in this year's tournament, currently taking place in Finland and Latvia.
