WJHC (World Junior Hockey Championships) 2016
« on: December 21, 2015, 03:06:55 AM »
It's that time of year again, as we cheer on our nation's junior team against the rest of the world's respective junior representatives for the
participating nations.

This year's tournament will be taking place in Finland.

Team Canada has already won two of their pre-tournament (exhibition) games -- a 7-I drubbing of Belarus, and a 1-0 shutout win over Czech Republic.

Team Canada's top line consists of Mitch Marner- Dylan Strome-Lawton Crouse (injured - replaced by Jake Virtanen).

Here is the TSN broadcast & complete schedule of games.  Note that Canada's first game comes Boxing Day (Dec. 26) against Auston Matthews & Team USA.

Not that it matters for anything other than bragging rights:
Dermott makes the cut over Hab's pick Juulsen, who was drafted 8 picks ahead.

I don't think Finland's officially announced their roster yet, but it seems like Laine's still with them.

Canada up 1-0 so far on Sweden in their pre-tourney match.

I've been trying to watch this game through TSNs streaming service, but keeps giving me an error. Illegally it is!
