2016 IIHF World Championship Report (Day 6)

With the second round of the NHL playoffs coming to a close the World Championships are beginning a period of reinforcements as NHL players are making the move to the Worlds.

World Junior Championship (Medal Round)

The World Juniors came to an end after another wild year that saw upsets and typical blowouts. This tournament has had it all as we have seen breakout players emerge who may be able to get the attention of the NHL scouts before the draft. There has also been some amazing goalie performances form a number of teams as little known goalies began making a name for themselves.

World Junior Championship (Day 4)

The World Juniors continued with another day of relative quiet with only two games on tap. These games were also not the best as the top teams in the tournament took on the worst teams in the tournament. There were some surprises though as some teams were able to play much better than expected but were still not able to provide upsets.

World Junior Preview (Pool A)

The World Juniors is always considered a Canadian Tournament but last year in Buffalo they did not take home the prize. Instead the Russians took home the prize and are back this year to begin their own streak that the Canadians are known for. With a number of top prospects the Russians look to dominate Pool A and advance into the playoffs.
