Nino Niederreiter joined the Swiss National Team for a pair of exhibition games last week against Sweden. The Islanders forward did not record a point in his first warm-up, a 4-2 Swiss victory on April 18, but scored two goals in a 5-2 win on April 20.

Switzerland has two more exhibition games scheduled before their first World Championship game on May 5 vs. Kazakhstan. They'll face John Tavares and Team Canada on April 29 and May 1. Expect Swiss Captain Mark Streit to be in the lineup for the final two tune-ups.

Frans Nielsen has already played in two exhibition games for Denmark, recording a goal in his first international action of the summer on April 21 against Germany and an assist the next day against the same opponent. Denmark's final exhibition game is on May 1 against Italy. They'll face the Czech Rep. on May 4 to open the tournament.

Kyle Okposo and Team USA play an exhibition game on May 1 against Sweden before playing their first game of the tournament on May 4 against France.
