While the second round of the National Hockey League playoffs captures much of the attention of hockey fans, don’t forget about the World Hockey Championship, which has just started.

As with every year, this event brings together a number of countries, the majority of which rely on NHL players.

With the Olympics right around the corner and the NHL in attendance, this event has a lot of solid players.

In reality, several Montreal Canadiens players are in attendance, while Kaiden Guhle (Canada), Cole Caufield (USA), and Juraj Slafkovsky (Slovakia) are in the Czech Republic.

In Slafkovsky’s instance, he got the tournament off to a terrific start with a fantastic goal in a warm-up game, and he added two assists in Slovakia’s first game of the tournament, earning him the distinction of Slovak Player of the Game.

Despite his strong start to the tournament, the Habs striker appears to be focused on winning.

Despite his excellent effort, Slafkovsky was unable to help Slovakia defeat Germany 6-4 in the opening game.

Slafkovsky was also in a terrible mood during an interview following the game.

Slaf had been upset with the referees during the game, and he was even more upset afterward, complaining about his hotel bed.

According to a Slovak sports publication, the Slovak striker claimed after the game that his back was hurting as a result of his hotel bed.

“My back hurts because of the hotel bed. I would have preferred to stay somewhere further away from the arena in something better. Unfortunately, that’s not my decision.” – Juraj Slafkovsky

Despite the fact that the hotel is only 350 meters from the venue where Slovakia will play all of their group stage matches in this tournament, Slafkovsky would have liked a hotel that was further away but more comfortable.

In brief, Slafkovsky vented his rage after losing to Germany, Slovakia’s likely closest challenger in this tournament.

The two countries are anticipated to compete for third place in the group.

Let’s see how Slafkovsky does the rest of the tournament, and if he finds his bed more comfortable after a victory.

Complaining about his bed is not ideal, but Slaf is still young and will learn to control his frustration better.

Slovakia’s next encounter will be against Kazakhstan on Sunday.
