December 26, 2011 - January 5, 2012
Edmonton/Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Tournament schedule.




Evgeny Kuznetsov returns to captain Team Russia and vie for back-to-back golds.

Pre-tournament play kicks off tonight with Canada vs. Finland. Pre-tourney schedule.
No full NHLN coverage rundown as yet but it looks like they'll air USA's games and others leading up to the medal games.
Next week's NHLN-USA schedule here.

Noteworthy 2012 draft-eligible participants in the mix:

Russia: LW Nail Yakupov, C Mikhail Grigorenko
Sweden: LW Filip Forsberg, W Pontus Aberg, RW Sebastian Collberg
Canada: D Ryan Murray
USA: D Jacob Trouba
Czech Republic: C Radek Faksa, C Tomas Hertl
Latvia: C Zemgus Girgensons
Finland: D Olli Maatta, D Ville Pokka

Top players passed over in past drafts: LW Tanner Pearson/Canada; RW Tomas Hyka/Czech Republic; RW Alessio Bertaggia/Switzerland;
W Tanner Richard/Switzerland, G Andrei Makarov/Russia & LW Nikita Gusev/Russia.

Also a few of top-end 2013 players potentially in C Sasha Barkov/Finland; D Seth Jones/US & D Rasmus Ristolainen/Finland.

And draft-eligibles. And whatever other game commentary people may have.

Frk dropped out due to not being 100%. Some other big offensive talents--Yakupov, Huberdeau, Bjugstad--also banged up but expected to play.

The tickets this year are stupidly expensive was hoping to take some games in.

Does anyone know who Kuznetsov will be playing with?

Think its just speculation at this point but he might be on the line with Grigorenko.

Looking forward to this. I will keep my eye out for Yakupov and Murray.

During practice, his first line consisted of forwards Kuznetsov, Namestnikov, Yakupov & d-men Sergeev and Arzamastsev. #WJC

I'm gonna take a guess that the 2nd line is gonna be Gusev-Grigorenko-Kucherov

US defenseman Seth Jones injured in last night's exhibition vs. Russia and ruled out for the tournament. Russia won 6-3 without Kuznetsov & Grigorenko in the lineup.

Yeah I saw the NHL network schedule and that pretty much blows. Hopefully there will be some streams.

Apparently Yakupov was extremely impressive in that game.

I'm going to be separated from NHLN until the new year anyway, so I'm definitely hoping for plenty of streams.

But they'll show Russia in the elimination games.

TSN/TSN2 is showing them all so between them and Russian TV there should be some available. TSN should also have them archived on their site afterwards.

Russia plays the late game in all of their RR matches so that's the main reasoning it would seem as far as NHLN-USA goes.

I'm just happy there's more games, kinda sucked just having only US games to watch last year.

I assumed it was because of being in the other group, but yes, Canada is showing all 4 Russian prelim games and all are listed for TSN2 on the schedule I saw. So, I assumed/hoped that NHLN in the US will show some of those games using the TSN2 broadcast

Some information and links:


The USA television Info - Team USA Games (times shown are eastern time); here's the link to the Complete US television schedule

Preliminary Round
12/26 USA vs Denmark 8pm
12/28 Finland vs USA 3:30 pm
12/30 Czech Republic vs USA 3:30pm
12/31 USA vs Canada 8pm

and

Jan 2 Quarterfinals
Jan 3 Semifinals
Jan 5 Medal games


A twitter list I pulled together to follow some tournament information.

Link to the IIHF WJC tournament site including schedules, rosters, format, articles. Note, at this time, some of the rosters are still preliminary.

Link to the Hockey Canada website for the tournament

Link to the USA Hockey website and Team USA Blog for the tournament

Link to TSN Tournament site

More on Team Russia and the Lokomotiv crash (RIP)

WJC Story (sounds like more are coming, Svitov perhaps...) from a former Capital, Brian Sutherby
