World Juniors Tournament

Recommended Posts

Hey hey it's nearly that time of year again. Who else is super excited?? Canada had their first preliminary tournament game last night vs. Finland and got a 3-1 win. Great to see Teemu Pulkkinen pop one in for the Fins last night and it should be fun to watch all the prospects in international competition!beerchug.gif

If anyone was wondering, the NHL Network will be broadcasting the games. Here is the schedule for the US NHL Network. Games start Monday (?) and US first game is Monday at 8PM for those who were wondering.

does anyone have the full list of Red Wings prospects that will be at our game?

I'm thinking Pulkkinen, Jurco, Mrazek, but is there anyone else?

Yup. Along with Mattias Backman and Marek Tvrdon.

Nedomlel should be there as well but it seems as if any player who decides to play in NA gets punished for a year.

Let's see, we have:

Sweden: Backman

Finland: Pulkkinen

Czech: Mrazek

Slovakia: Tvrdon, Jrco

I think that's all. Nedomlel was suppose to play for the Czech but the Czech hockey federation has so much sand up their vaginas they aren't letting him play (He'd be one of their top 4)

Off-topic, but I hope Swift Current trades Nedomlel to a contender. I'd love to see what he could do with a team that's not spinning its wheels like Swifty.

I'm not too worried about Pulkkinen, but I am hoping Jurco can snipe a bunch for the Slovaks. Could be a huge tourney for him.

Well our boy Pulkkinen decided to take a wicked shot right off the foot of Canada's Smith-Pelley. Probably the most physical player on Canada now has a broken foot and will miss the rest of the tournament. In the prelim games, he put up something like 8-10 hits per game. Huge hits too.

So Canada plays a tired USA on Saturday....need all the help they can get eh? :hehe:

Of Course! This year's squad just isn't as good as years past... (as they say every single year :rolleyes: )

Then again... Canada will play their 3rd game in 4 nights as well so it's not too far off even ;)

I hope some of you out there can give a report on the performances of Jurco and Tvrdon.

Jurco has beendreamily good but Tvrdon has been one of the best, if not the best, player on the ice tonight. Each have a goal.
