Czech Republic vs Austria U20 Live IIHF World Junior Championship

The 2022 World Junior Championship is in full swing in Edmonton and Red Deer.

While the NHL was on pause over the Christmas break due to widespread COVID-19 outbreaks, the world juniors have gone on.

The tournament has already seen a hat trick from Sabres first-overall pick Owen Power, a 48-save shutout from Wild goalie prospect Jesper Wallstedt, an upset overtime win by Germany over the Czechia and standout play from 2023 NHL Draft sensations Matvei Michkov and Connor Bedard.

This year’s tournament will conclude with the gold medal game on Jan. 5. Follow along here for updates throughout the rest of the tournament.

Four days. Four positive cases among 250 players. A hotel and conference centre where wedding guests ran into players and staff. Provincial health guidelines from Alberta Health, with federal input from the Public Healthy Agency of Canada, that had to be followed. Rooms, doubled up until it was too late to switch. Tests that take hours, not minutes, to produce results. And ultimately, a Wednesday morning meeting of the minds after three forfeits too many — and a half-bubble burst.

The World Junior Championship, an annual showcase of the next generation of hockey stars, which was already underway in Canada, was canceled on Wednesday as the rapid spread of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus continued to wreak havoc on the sports world.
