Since then, the DEB team has already been subject to test specifications for the World Cup and will then travel to Canada on 22 April. On May 1 only, participating teams are allowed to go on ice after an eight-day individual quarantine in Halifax and True.
Youth national coach Franziska Busch: “Now we will work more on strategic things, because we are almost full – and try players in different positions.
