A Canadian hockey character who I’m blanking on right now once depicted the World Junior Championship as Canada’s adaptation of March Madness, with the exception of the whole nation pulls for Duke.
It’s that season once more. A challenge that is seemingly the most energizing stretch of hockey of the whole year. Indeed, considerably more energizing than the Stanley Cup Finals. The best 20 and under players on the planet have assembled in Ostrava and Trinec in the Czech Republic to crown another best on the planet.
While four Ducks possibilities made their separate nation’s preparation camps, Trevor Janicke (USA) and Benoit-Olivier Grouxl (CAN) were both cut, leaving Lukas Dostàl (CZE) and Trevor Zegras (USA) as Anaheim’s agents in the competition.
Here are every one of the subtleties you should watch the current year’s World Junior Championship.
