As documented in the Ranking Prospects thread, Ian Scott has been playing behind what appears to be a historic WHL group. They're a veteran-laden team at the moment (lots of 19s), and they're just clicking. To illustrate the type of PDO bender they're on right now, they're apparently +5 (15-10) in goal differential when shorthanded. Whatever magic sauce Scott got from his brief Marlie-stint into the Calder Run, it's coming up big time for the Raiders as well when they do occasionally give up some chances.

It'll be interesting to see how the Raiders do without him in net (probably close to the same until regression strikes).

What a squad.

FIN announces WJC camp roster. This group would look a lot different with Kotkaniemi (MTL), Heiskanen (DAL), Jokiharju (CHI) and Vaakanainen (BOS). https://t.co/tcqthUsrAq— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) December 3, 2018

Any insight into how strong Canada is this year vs the competition? Who's favoured?

herman:
Alex Formenton (Team Canada, Ottawa prospect) went down with an injury in a World Juniors tune up game. No updates on his status.

Whatever spirit of hockey injury Melnyk conjured following the Uber video has been working overtime.

Story time:
In the 2015 World Juniors tournament, Frederik Gauthier cracked the lineup, posting one assist in seven games (in an 8-0 victory over Denmark).

Mitch Marner was cut from that team, despite posting 126 points in the OHL that season.— The Leafs Nation (@TLNdc) December 16, 2018
