Kopitar, the only NHL player on the team, leads the Kings with 35 points this season.

Jan Mursak, who plays for the Detroit Red Wings' American Hockey League team, is one of the forwards along with Bostjan Golicic, Ziga Jeglic, Anze Kuralt, Ales Music, Ziga Pance, Tomaz Razingar, David Rodman, Marcel Rodman, Robert Sabolic, Rok Ticar, Jan Urbas and Miha Verlic.

Blaz Gregorc, Sabahudin Kovacevic, Ales Kranjc, Ziga Pavlin, Matic Podlipnik, Klemen Pretnar, Mitja Robar and Andrelj Tavzelj will be on defense, and Luka Gracnar, Andrej Hocevar and Robert Kristan are the goalies.
