Meszaros was team captain at the 2005 World Junior Championships and captained Team Slovakia to a sliver medal at the 2003 World Under-18 Championship. He finished tied for third among defensemen scoring in 2003, with four points (2-2-4) in seven games.
He was the youngest player (18) on Slovakia’s 2004 World Junior team before going on to play seven games at the World Championships in the same year.
I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
