With the World Junior Championships less than one month away, we offer up our early reviews of developments leading up to the December 26th puck drop.

This will serve as our preamble to the always popular and more often than not exciting World Junior Tournament.

Over the next few weeks, the page will provide some advance notes on the upcoming tournament, all leading up to the unveiling of our HockeyNation home page dedicated to the 2014 Tourney.

That will be in place shortly before they drop the puck in Malmo.
