2021 World Juniors

Seeing how we won't have NHL again until at least January, next bit of hockey we have to look forward to is the 2021 World Juniors, which has the potential to be one of the best tournaments ever (nothing will top 2005 obviously).

Last time we had world juniors going when there was no NHL was 2012/13.

Finland had Korpisalo,Ristolainen,Teravainen,Barkov, but that team only won 2 games.

Sweden's forwards with names like Forsberg,Karlsson,Lindholm,Rask,Arvidsson,Rakell.

Russia with guys like Vasilevski and Kucherov.

USA had Gibson in net. Jones,Trouba,Murphy,Gostisbehere on D, Miller,Gaudreau,Galchenyuk,Trochek as the forwards and they won gold.

Canada had Binnington in net. Rielly and Hamilton on D. Nugent-Hopkins,Huberdeau,Strome,Scheifele,Danault,Drouin and MacKinnon as the forwards, but they finished 4th!

As for this years world juniors, obviously we'll see the big names from the 2020 draft, and top guys for 2021 together, but the 2019 class too I'm hoping we also have Hughes,Kakko,Dach.

First time since 2005 the tournament starts on Christmas. Entire thing happens in Edmonton this year. USA vs Russia is the headliner on Christmas. Canada as usual kicks off their tournament on Boxing Day. Russia-Sweden on December 30th, and what a fun New Years Eve with Canada-Finland and USA-Sweden.
