MONTREAL - Tomas Tatar's journey at the IIHF World Hockey Championship wrapped up on Tuesday.

In Slovakia's last game of the preliminary round, the host country beat Denmark 2-1 in a shootout.

Tatar was held off the scoresheet, and was also unable to beat Sebastian Dahm in the shootout.

The 28-year-old winger finished the tournament with two goals and four assists in seven games.

Slovakia's final record stands at 3-0-1-3 at the 2019 edition of the Worlds. That won't be enough for the host country to move on to the next round, as they've finished in fifth place in group A.
