I wonder what would muslim players from country like Qatar do if they needed to pray during a WC hockey game? Muslims have to pray in scheduled times, right?

Not quite, they live under an absolute monarchy and some of their social policy is a few steps behind a lot of other countries. There have been steps made over the past decade or so to improve in these areas, but they've still got a ways to go in that regard.

Nazem Kadri seems to get around it fine, I'm pretty sure he doesn't have to fast during Ramadan as well because it would inflict his work, or something like that. Yakupov might be muslim as well, at least most Tatars are muslim, so I'm speaking purely from statistics, I don't know anything about his religion.

As I understand it, you don't have to fast if you're not reasonably able to do it. (Like if you're old and frail, ill, or pregnant, etc. )

If you're traveling/doing important stuff, you can also postpone the fasting and do it some other time when it suits you better.

*Disclaimer: not an expert.

Ramadan is during the Olympics this year so there have been several stories about that. Apparently you are able to postpone your fasting as long as you get it in at a later date. Needless to say there are exceptions, but I don't know what they all are.
