From now until the conclusion of the 2019 IIHF Men's Ice Hockey World Championship, Rangers defenseman Brady Skjei will be documenting his experience on and off the ice as he competes in the tournament for the first time alongside fellow Blueshirts Chris Kreider and Adam Fox.

Tomorrow is a big day for Team USA: We face Russia, the top seed in the tournament, in the quarterfinals at Worlds.
Getting here wasn't easy. We won five times - once in overtime - and lost twice, in our first and last games of the preliminaries. Our win over Germany this past Sunday clinched our quarterfinals berth, which was obviously a huge thing. That's the goal coming into the tournament, is you want to get into this part of the tournament, to another round. We were really excited.
