TSN is set to drop the puck on Canada’s favourite holiday tradition, the one tournament that catapults the country’s top junior players to hockey glory: the World Juniors. Canadians can follow Team Canada’s every move in Malmö, Sweden, with complete coverage of the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship on TSN platforms from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5, with pre-competition games beginning Friday, Dec. 20 (click here or see below for complete broadcast schedule).

TSN’s World Juniors broadcast schedule includes:

  • five pre-competition games, with three games featuring Team Canada;
  • all four Team Canada preliminary round games, plus 14 additional round-robin match-ups;
  • the quarter-finals, semifinals, bronze medal game and gold medal game.

Along with live coverage of every Team Canada game, TSN also delivers same-day encore presentations during the evening along with 30-minute pre-game and post-game shows.

World Juniors on TSN
Last year, 15.4 million unique Canadian viewers watched some part of the World Juniors on TSN and TSN2.

Earlier this year, TSN reached a new 10-year agreement that extends the network’s long-standing partnership with Hockey Canada beginning in 2014. The new deal, negotiated exclusively with TSN, gives the network multi-platform media rights to all Hockey Canada events, including the highly-anticipated 2015 and 2017 IIHF World Junior Championships co-hosted by Toronto and Montreal.

TSN has been televising the World Juniors since 1991.

Broadcast Team
James Duthie hosts TSN’s coverage of the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, alongside Hockey Insider and leading junior hockey expert Bob McKenzie.  Select preliminary round games will be hosted by Vic Rauter and analyst Jason Strudwick.

Calling all Team Canada games, plus the playoffs and finals, are play-by-play commentator and 2013 IIHF Paul Loicq Award winner Gord Miller and analyst Ray Ferraro. Both Miller and Ferraro are on location in Malmö, Sweden, and are joined by play-by-play commentator Dave Randorf and analyst Craig Button, who will be calling select games throughout the tournament. 

Also in Malmö are reporters Nabil Karim, who is reporting rinkside during games, and Mark Masters, who is filing daily reports for Canada’s No. 1 sports news program, SPORTSCENTRE, along with THAT’S HOCKEY and THAT’S HOCKEY 2NITE. 

Duthie and McKenzie will tee up the tournament during the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship preview show on Christmas Eve, Tuesday, Dec. 24, at 7 p.m. ET on TSN. The 60-minute preview show includes hits with Miller and Ferraro in Malmö, Sweden, an interview between Duthie and Team Canada head coach Brent Sutter, as well as Button handicapping the tournament and projecting the Top 5 finishers.
