- On behalf of the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, I would like to welcome the teams participating at this tournament, especially the two organisations from China. We are multiple Olympic and world champions, Russia is a sporting superpower and we love promoting ice hockey. We want more children to get involved with our favourite sport! I would like to whole heartedly thank the governor of Primorsky Krai Oleg Kozhemyako and the Ministry of Sport of Primorsky Krai for their fantastic support, I know that everyone worked hard to ensure the staging of this competition. In the future, we're hoping for teams from Belarus and Kazakhstan also participate in the tournament.
