World cup rinks in europe

World cup will be played under NHL rules which includes smaller rinks. My question is what about rinks in Europe (Globe, Sazka, Hartwall, Cologne)? Will teams from European pool play on their original sized rinks and then switch to NHL rinks when they come to NA for the medal round, or will they put smaller rinks in Globe, Hartwall, Cologne and Sazka before the tournament begines?

No they won't! The rinks will be made as close the NHL width as it's technically possible. E.g. the rink in Hartwall Areena can be made 28 meters wide, which is what it was for about a season and a half. I don't know about all the other rinks but the Globe rink was smaller than international size in the last World Cup.

Here is the official site, it lists the ice surfaces of each arena. All the same.
