It’s time for the World Juniors again. Are you ready for daily double-headers, lots of prospects, and three Maple Leafs draft picks to watch?

Today there are four games, and if you’re in Canada, most games are broadcast on TSN and some are available on TSN Go, which is their streaming service available to cable subscribers of TSN only. In the United States, some games will be broadcast on NHL Network. Outside of North America in any market without television rights to the games, fans can watch on the IIHF youtube channel.

You can find the full schedule here:

Today’s Games

12:00 PM CZE - RUS: TSN 1, 3, 4, 5

2:00 PM BLR - SWE: TSN Go — Timothy Liljegren for Sweden

4:00 PM CAN - FIN: TSN 1, 3, 4, 5 — Eemeli Räsänen for Finland

8:00 PM DEN - USA: TSN 1, 3, 4, 5 — Joseph Woll for USA

Participation of Leafs prospects is subject to roster decisions, and we’ll try to update this post with confirmation when we have it.

Registered as in the initial roster you submit the day before the event starts. Teams that leave spaces on the roster can add players at any time later 24 hrs before a game.

Liljegren is in, and lucky for him he doesn’t get Dahlin duty. Dahlin duty means doubling up on D while the wonder-child runs around the offensive zone making the opposing team look foolish. Moverare is an OHL defender and might just suit him very well as a partner.
