That was exactly my point. The population size is irrelevant. Albeit the general interest in hockey is. More people playing hockey, more hockey rinks, more hockey schools, bigger arenas, more money invested in hockey - everything translates in more frequent WJHCs held in the North America. I was born and raised in Russia, and I’ve been cheering for the Russian (USSR) national teams since I was 5. After spending the last 12 years in the North America (I still visit Russia quite often), I can’t argue with the fact that hockey is more popular in Canada. Period.
