International competitions such as the World Juniors are amateur events and don't effect anything when it comes to NCAA status. I believe it would be Latvia's hockey association paying for air and rooms and whatnot.

For those who remember the Jeremy Bloom situation - it wasn't his Olympics participation that the NCAA was being dicks about - it was his sponsors. Unless Latvia's U-20 team is sponsored by Mountain Dew that's not going to be an issue.
