The 2019 International Ice Hockey Federation Men's World Championship was held in Kosice & Bratislava, Slovakia, from May 10-26, 2019.
Team USA entered the 2019 competition after earning bronze in 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The bronze medal win gave the U.S. its third bronze medal (2013, 2015, 2018) and fourth top-four finish in the last six IIHF Men's World Championships, a feat the country has not accomplished since medaling in three of the five tournaments it competed in from 1939-1950.
On March 21, it was announced by the IIHF that the 2020 IIHF Men's World Championship has been canceled. For more information, click here.
