Toronto Maple Leafs: Grabovski and Four Others Heading to the Worlds

This year's World Hockey Championships will take place primarily in Cologne Germany from May 7 to 23 although there are also venues in Mannheim and Gelsenkirchen.

This 2000-year-old city is home to some of the world's most popular events including the Cologne Carnival.

Cologne boasts a population of over one million residents, but annually hosts in the neighborhood of around 110 million day guests.

This year's tournament will not likely draw close to that number but still holds promise for Leafs fans everywhere as there will be no less than five Toronto Maple Leafs players participating in this year's tournament.

There have been plenty of Leafs representing their countries on the world stage over the team's long history, most notably of course is former captain Mats Sundin who played in a total of six World Championships and one Winter Olympics, helping Sweden to a total of four Gold, two Bronze and one Silver medal over the course of his career.

While these five players have a long way to go before they can think of eclipsing those numbers, this year will be a good start.
