"Every hockey player who has a Slovak passport and the necessary sports data has the right to represent Slovakia in international competitions. However, due to the fact that the current representatives of the Slovak national team, who are in the KHL, for various reasons - health, personal, family or other - are unavailable to help the national team in the midst of the season, this issue is closed for the World Championship for the Executive Committee and the Slovak national team," the statement said.
