Philipp Kurashev, like his linemate, will be returning to play in the IIHF World Championships this season.

He played with Team Switzerland during the 2018 and 2019 seasons at the IIHF World Junior Championships.

His career totals in the IIHF are 12 games played, scoring 10 points( 7 G, 3 A), and will have a new goal for the 2024 season.



He undoubtedly will be taking on Czechia at one point and like his linemate Connor Bedard, they have made a pact.

That is to score on their goalie, Petr Mrazek during the World Championships.

Mrazek better buckle up, as it seems Bedard and Kurashev are gunning for him.

Considering the year he's had in the NHL, Czechia could have worse in net, he had a 3.05 GAA, an 18-31-4 record, and a .908 save percentage.

The last time Mrazek played internationally, was during the 2016-2017 season playing only 4 games, stats absent.
