World Junior Championships Preview

Alex and Chace are back and have brought a guest. This week, Last Word’s own Ben Kerr joins the guys to help preview the Wolrd Junior Championships. Ben released a pair of articles highlighting players to watch in Group A and Group B over the weekend.

The trio starts by taking a look at who will find themselves in the relegation round. It is a consensus pick for each division. They then talk about who may find themselves relegated and why this may be OK.

Following that, they take a look at which two teams may find themselves looking at a 4th place seeding. Once again, a rather consensus pick. However, the guys do note that both these teams have the potential for an upset.

Top 6

The three then move on and rank the top 6 teams. Ben has what the guys consider a hot take about who is number 6, however, provides a convincing reason why. They go all the way down to one. Once they get to the first place team they take a deep dive looking at what line combos and goalies may look like.

Finally, they give their final thoughts on the tournament and wrap the Holiday Special World Junior Championships preview episode. Do you agree with the rankings? Let them know here or on Twitter!
