Team Denmark Media Policy

Team Denmark players and staff strives to make themselves available to the media for any information they wish at all time during the World Championship while keeping the games the number one priority for the team.

Team Denmark has a very keen interest in servicing the media as much as possible and the last 10 World Championships have seen very good relations between the two parties. We offer the following services during the tournament:

Practise days and non-game days:

  • After practises the team will be available for comments and interviews in the mixed zone. For specific player requests please contact the Team Denmark Media Officer who is present at all practises.
  • If a planned practise is cancelled we typically offer media services at our hotel in the morning with a few select players and the coaching staff. Please keep an eye on information boards in the media center as we will give notice in due time for these services.

Game days:

  • Immediately after the pre-game skate Assistant Coach Thomas Jonsson as well as any players not dressing for the game is available in the mixed zone. No players participating in the game will be present.
  • 90 minutes prior to game start Head Coach Janne Karlsson will be available in the Mixed Zone for a short Q/A session.
  • After the game the team will be available in the mixed zone with the exception of players that require immediate treatment from the medical staff or players requested by the broadcasting rightholders (for studio appearance).
  • Head Coach Janne Karlsson will be present at the post game press conference and will give short interviews after the conclusion of the press conference and in the Mixed Zone.

Other services:

  • We allow solo interviews for up to 15 minutes per player upon request to the Media Officer. Interview time and location is planned individually for each request.
  • We do not accept any calls to the mobile phones or hotel rooms of the players during the World Championship! We reserve our right to end these calls on a short notice and refer to the Media Officer for player or staff bookings. We enforce this rule in order to give the team optimal conditions in regard to resting time, team meetings etc. Coaching staff should be dealt with in the same manner.
  • We do request that all media contact goes through the Team Media Officer.
