After suffering a concussion in Finland's preliminary round defeat against Russia, Pekka Jormakka has voiced his desire to continue to play for his country in the 2014 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Belarus. At the earliest, Jormakka could feature in Finland's line-up today, on Thursday, if the team is able to progress from the preliminary round.

"I'm still hungry for more games. I'd like to continue playing, if the doctor gives the permission. I would hate to drop out of the tournament," Jormakka commented before Finland's hard-earned 2-0 win over hosts Belarus last Thursday.
