In Germany, the U-20 Summer Challenge is taking place. The teams include Switzerland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Germany. Most of the players on these rosters are the elite players. The only big name I see missing is Jakub Voracek for the Czech Republic. He's most likely will be playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets this season.
Switzerland defeated Slovakia 1-0.
Czech Republic defeated Germany 4-2
NHL.com did an interview with Victor Hedman.
The Portland Press Herald did an interview with USA defenseman for the Ivan Hlinka Tournament, Brian Dumoulin.
The Detroit Free Press did a profile on Plymouth Whalers rookie Austin Levi.
That's My Take
