The Latvian Daugavpils versus Belarus Novopolotsk were the first.

Then at 10 o'clock Delemon (Switzerland) versus Kharkov (Ukraine) play.

At 12 o'clock Byelorussians play versus the Austrian Graz.

At 14 o'clock Kharkov and Daugavpils teams cross their hockey sticks.

And at 16 o'clock there is the last fight for today which many fans of ice-hockey wait: Russia — Canada. This match features Ufa versus Kelowna.
