No, think there might be another against Solway on the cards but otherwise not been revealed yet.

Did you hear that Josh Cook won't be coming to play for GB U20? That won't help your optimism eh?

The teams so young, there's only 3 94 born forwards and 2 of them are in NA and the other is Ross Venus. I don't expect them to win the group or anything but I expect some good competitive games. If they avoid relegation they'll have quite an experienced group of forwards going into next year.

Any word if they replaced Cook with anyone since he isn't eligible this year?

Reckon that anyone will pick this up for TV? Seem to recall that the Olympic games where picked up but I'm doubting that anyone would do it for the WJC. At best, maybe Premier Sports? But that would've announced by now I think.

Unlikely. From what I know there will definitely be live streams of the games and for me that's more than enough considering it use to be near impossible to get a live stream lol

The IIHF site has the extra players not named to the final roster: Niall Quinn ('94 G) Joshua Grievesen ('97 D) Jonathan Kirk ('95 D) Lee Boner ('97 F) and Samuel Towner ('95 F).

I'll be interested to see Grievesen at the U18s. Not only because he grew up in Dumfries but because he's supposedly a pretty good 97 born D-man @ Northwood in Lake Placid.

I'm more than a little pissed about these fees for the U20 feeds. I get they want some cash but those prices... I can go watch future NHLers for less money, and be in the same rink as them ffs. Also costs less for feeds for junior hockey in Canada... a lot less.

Ticket to be in the rink is 8. You can get a 3 game pass (aka a 1 day pass for 10)

They just lost so much exposure that IIHF free live streams usually offer.

I know mate how do they expect to grow the sport in the country when you can hardly watch it online.

Right? The point of the live stream is to reach a wider audience, mainly the people who can't afford to travel to Dumfries to watch the tournament. There isn't a massive audience for Ice Hockey in GB as is, so the point should be to reach fans you wouldn't normally be able to get. With a price tag on the streams, they're destroying the entire point.

With any luck nobody buys it and they don't screw up the U18 live streams this way.

They're going to be sorely disappointed if they think many will buy that. Very poor as not everyone can get time of work or make it to Dumfries to watch in person so a stream is the best option as it isn't on TV. Poor, very poor.

I was a bit nervous that I'd be alone on this lol glad to see I'm not the only one.

I really really hope people don't seriously buy this. If the sales are good they'll think selling this for U18s is also a good idea. IIHF was just getting consistent with their free streams to help exposure and now GB does this, drives me nuts.

Is the website run by the governing body of UK Ice Hockey?

I'm not sure tbh, their website is so brutal it's tough to tell exactly.

IIHF have had live streams for almost every event on their site for the last 2 years now. This is the first time I have ever seen one charge a fee to watch the stream, especially at this low of a level.
