I ♥ the IIHF Under-20 World Junior Hockey Championship

hockey canadaIt doesn't get any better than this. The IIHF Under-20 world junior hockey championship is a tournament I look forward to every year and it never fails to deliver. It all starts tonight at 7:30 when Canada takes on the Czech Republic in Ottawa.

We went 3-0 in pre-competition play, outscored opponents 18-5, and will be led by young phenom John Tavares. Depending on who you talk to, Tavares will be going 1st or 2nd overall in the entry draft this June, with Swede Victor Hedman taking the other spot. Here's hoping for a strong tourney from #19.

Here's Tavares scoring an amazing goal just the other day in pre-competition play. Tune in tonight for the sequel.

We are pretty pumped about his line-mate Cody Hodgson here in Vancouver.
