Sweden Finland
Germany Czech Republic
Swiss Slovakia
Austria Latvia

Teams will play four preliminary games in a round-robin format within their pool, followed by a three-round playoff series.

In the group stage, teams earn three points for a regulation win, two points for an overtime win, one point for an overtime loss, and no points for a regulation loss.

The top four teams from each group advance to the quarter-finals, where matchups are determined by seeding. They will rotate from one group to another for these games: 1A against 4B, 1B against 4A, 2A against 3B and 2B against 3A. Teams that advance to the semi-finals will be reclassified.

The winners of the semi-finals will face off in the gold medal game. The losers will play for bronze.

Russia was removed from the tournament after the IIHF instituted a ban on all Russian and Belarusian national teams from participating in IIHF play following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Latvia, who were runners-up in Division IA, were promoted to replace Russia at the tournament. Belarus were the winner of Division IA but were not promoted due to the ban.

No team will be relegated, so the same 10 countries will face off again in December at the 2023 tournament.
