GB will go head to head with Lithuania Under-20s, Poland Under-20s, Belarus Under-18s and Russian sides Omsk Hawks and Kapitan Stupino in the six-team tournament from 23rd to 28th August 2013.

Great Britain Under-20 head coach, Pete Russell, said: "It is terrific news for the Great Britain Under-20 program. This tournament will be great for our selection process and also our player development.

"It will be excellent experience for all players and staff during the trip. To go into Europe and play against other countries and top-level club teams will be great exposure for our lads and also for Team GB exposure
Some good news, could IHUK soon be taking their heads out of their arses?

They will be playing some tough teams, Poland U20's and Belarus U18's are D1A teams, and the Russian teams are from MHL which is a good level
