Main article: 2017 Men's Ice Hockey World Championships

The 2017 IIHF World Championship, the 2017 edition of the annual Ice Hockey World Championships, was hosted by Paris, France, and Cologne, Germany, from 5 to 21 May 2017. The official tournament mascots were Asterix and Obelix, the main characters from popular French comic book series The Adventures of Asterix.[1] The logo incorporates the silhouette of deceased German national team goaltender Robert Müller, who succumbed to a brain tumor at just 28 years of age.[2] German tennis player Angelique Kerber,[3]1. FC Köln and German Olympic soccer team goalkeeper Timo Horn[4] and Paris Saint-Germain F.C.'s Brazilian winger Lucas Moura[5] were named celebrity ambassadors for the event.

Sweden won the tournament by defeating Canada 2-1 after a penalty shoot-out.[6]
