2009 World Jr. A Challenge

http://www.hockeycanada.ca/index.php...71/la_id/1.htm

Taking place @ the Credit Union Place in Summerside, PE from November 1-8

Pool A:
Canada West
Sweden
Russia

Pool B:
Belarus
Canada East
USA

Any insight into this tournament? Who should be considered the favorite? Who are the players that we should be watching? Apparently over 90 scouts are going to be in attendance for this tournament.

All games except for the Gold Medal Game will be webcast here: http://hockeycanada.fasthockey.com/login.php

Team Russia goes with a 92 roster: http://www.russianprospects.com/publ...article_id=679
I guess the teams to beat are the two Canadian ones.

Pavel Suchkov,Vitaly Zotov,Artur Amirov,Zakhar Arzamastsev,Nikita Lukin,Daniil Apalkov and Vladislav Kartaev didnt make a roster. Yakupov(93),Namestnikov,Marchenko and Gusev should lead a team. many players miss this tourney because of different reasons.

Some exhibition results have rolled in....

Canada East 5 MJAHL All Stars 6 in SO
Canada West 3 Belarus 2 in SO
Belarus 4 MJAHL All Stars 5
Canada East 9 Russia 1
Canada West 2 USA 5

The US won last years challenge, and Canada West won the inaugural event. Guessing the US are the favorite again this year. Surprised Sweden did not arrange any exhibition match ups...

The Challenge is also being discussed on the MJAHL Zone chatboard: http://mjahlforum.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=logout

Surprising win by Russia against Canada West! after 9:1 drubbing by Canada East I was scared going into this game. Psyched to see Barbashev, Gusev, Marchenko representing CSKA!
I have no clue why we bring younger kids to this tournament, it's not like our U20 team is tearing the world apart....

Right now the kids are looking good, as they've defeated Sweden 3-2 this afternoon to improve their record to 2-0.

Last night saw Canada East trailing 4-1 after 2, but managed to score 4 unanswered and late in the 3rd on the PP to win it 5-4. Here's the summary:

How's it meaningless? Apparently being recruited fairly well. What are the chances that we'll see some of the Russian players in this tournament playing for their Country at the World Jrs. one of these days?

Looking at the pics under Media Gallery on the Hockey Canada site. It seems 50 people showed up for the games.

lol now now affiliate - I'm sensing a little sarcasm Perhaps Dieppe should talk to the City of Summerside (or vice versa) and see if they can save the tournament

More scores:
Belarus 5 Canada West 7 (last night)
Canada West 6 Sweden 3

Can't find anything related to player statistics on HC's tournament site

all I gonna say is that Stephan Lund needs to be fired, and that soon. The man has failed with every U18 team he had.

I was tempted to make that comment earlier today. Stephan Lund is probably the worst coach swedish hockey has ever seen, especially around young players.

To be fair the best players are in Canada at the moment, but you can't escape the fact that Lundh's track record is horrible. With the talent he's had at his disposal he really should have done better.

To be fair this a Tier 11 International Invitational Challenge.
The real U-20 or WJHC will be in Regina/Saskatoon over the Christmas season.
Maybe some teams are looking at this event as tryouts or exhibition for the Big Event?

Why did you quote me? I was talking about the Swedish team specifically (the best players are in Canada playing different university teams at the moment) and Lundh's teams (u18) have been consistently disappointing. My post has nothing to do with what you just wrote as far as I can tell.

Sorry I misunderstood.
The best Canadian University players are over the age of 20 and are playing CIS hockey after thier Jr years are over if they don't turn pro.
This tournament has Canadian players in Jr A which is below Major Jr.
Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Stephan Lundh just lost 3 games in a row with U18. I hope something is done very soon, because he needs to be replaced.
