World Juniors 2021: time, TV channel, live broadcast, where, when, schedule



It is the most wonderful time of the year. The IIHF World Junior Championship is here.

Once again, the best under-20 hockey players from around the world will come together to determine which nation has the best youth crop. This time the stage is Canada, where the homes team is going for gold consecutively. The favorite likely to enter the 12-day event boasts a roster packed with NHL first-round picks (20 of 25) and NHL-caliber talent, including Blackhawks forward and team captain Kirby Each.

However, don’t expect this to be a piece of cake; Team Canada will face stiff competition from Russia, which it defeated in the gold medal game last year; a highly qualified American squad; and a Swedish roster featuring Oilers prospect Philip Broberg as captain.

WORLD JUNIOR S: Breakdown of Each NHL Team’s Prospects Playing

As always, the Youth World Cup is expected to be filled with great goals, great saves and increasingly important victories. With national pride at stake, the battle for gold will be fierce. Here is everything you need to know about the tournament.

Where is the 2021 World Junior Championship?

The 2021 World Junior Championships will be held in Edmonton, Alta.

This year’s tournament was originally scheduled to take place in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alta., But the need for a safe bubble prompted Hockey Canada to move the entire event to where the NHL played summer hockey. The WJC is scheduled to hit the ice in both cities, with fans, fingers crossed, in 2022.

This year marks the third time Edmonton will host the World Youth Games. In 1995, Canada topped the podium; in 2012, Sweden won and the Canadians finished third in the Alberta capital.

When will the 2021 World Junior Championships take place?

Because teams play on a single track at Rogers Place, this year’s tournament includes an additional day of competition. The tournament will begin on Christmas Day with a triple cord.

The group stage, with two groups of five teams each, will span the first seven days of competition and end on New Year’s Eve. The eight surviving teams will have New Years Day off before returning to action for the quarterfinals on January 2. The winners of those games will advance to the semifinals two days later. The bronze medal and gold medal games will be held on Sunday, January 5.

How has COVID-19 impacted the tournament?

Since the jump, the tournament has felt the pandemic. The location was changed to a bubble in Edmonton. Then came the positive cases. Canada spent 14 days in quarantine during their selection camp before sending a handful of players homes. Team U SA lost two key players, John Beecher and Thomas Bordered. Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden were also affected.
