The Division A tournament was played from 1 February until 7 February 2016, while the Division B tournament took place afterwards, on 10–14 February.[1]

Czech Republic made its debut,[2] while Canada and Ukraine were set to return, thus reaching an all-time high of nineteen participating teams.[3] Canada missed the championships due to domestic competitions, so a total of eighteen countries participated, which is still more than ever before.

The tournament was part of Russian President Vladimir Putin's schedule for 2016,[4] he sent a greeting letter before the tournament[5] and one of congratulation after the victory of the Russian team.[6]
