Men’s World Championship Roundup: GB, Italy Relegated; Denmark Wins Major Upset

Italy relegated after losing to Kazakhstan

Italy will be sent to Division IA for the 2023 World Cup after Monday’s 5-2 defeat by Kazakhstan. Italy finished the tournament with just one point, plus an overtime loss

It will mark Italy’s return to the second tournament for the first time since 2018, avoiding relegation last year as the IIHF decided not to enforce it due to COVID-19. It’s Italy’s sixth trip to Division IA since 2011 and it will rise to the top event all but once.
