The International Ice Hockey Federation has just announced the list of the officials that will work at the upcoming 2019 World Championship in Slovakia.

Seven KHL officials made it to the final list: four referees, Martin Frano, Roman Gofman, Evgeny Romasko, and Maxim Sidorenko; and three linesmen, Dmitry Golyak, Gleb Lazarev, and Dmitry Shishlo. The 2019 IIHF World Championship plays from May 10-26 in Bratislava and Kosice, Slovakia.

Moreover, the referee Yury Oskirko will work at the World Championship Division IA from April 29 to May 5 in Astana, Kazakhstan.

“Being selected by the IIHF is always pleasant. We keep on having a leading position and, hopefully, we will work in the most important games. Evgeny Romasko and Maxim Sidorenko did a tremendous job at the recent World Junior Championship, and this is the basis for the call to the senior tournament. I also want to highlight that Yury Oskirko will call the Division IA tournament in Astana, where the battles will be even more fierce as the teams fight for a spot in the elite group. In Slovakia, Dmitry Shishlo will have his debut, and today he will work at his 200th KHL game. These officials show a high level, which corresponds at the top 10-15 in the League. We hope that working in the playoffs they will gather energy and confidence,” the KHL head referee Alexei Anisimov says.
