Player Age?

I've been looking, and I can't find the answer, but what is the cutoff for who can and can't participate in the WJC? I understand that it's an U20 tournament, but is it simply you can play if you're under 20 at the time the tournament starts, or ends, or is there another date that is used?

If you come 20 on Dec 31 or earlier, you cannot participate. Jan 1 and later is OK.

Calendar year, unlike the NHL which uses September 15th.
