The 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship will be the 42nd Ice Hockey World Junior Championship. It will be hosted by the city of Buffalo, New York. It will begin on December 26, 2017, and will end with the gold medal game being played on January 5, 2018. This marks the sixth time that the United States has hosted the IHWJC and the second time that Buffalo has done so (Buffalo also hosted the event in 2011).

A preliminary round game between Canada and the United States will also be played outdoors at New Era Field in nearby Orchard Park, New York on December 29, 2017. It will mark the first ever outdoor game played during an IIHF world championship at the junior level.

Sounds like it's going to be a good game.

They're bragging up the defenses. Let's hope that doesn't mean nobody scores.

And oh oh, Finland looks like they're falling apart. They didn't like that first goal, took a dumb penalty and went down 2.

They best reorganize themselves.

I wouldn't say the Finns look to be falling apart, I think they have a pretty good game going, probably not enough to knock off Team Canada but they are definitely giving Canada a good workout. The Finns are out shooting Team Canada 20-15, but our boys are ahead where it counts, 4-2 with 5 min left in the 2nd.

Watched the whole thing. Good game overall. Some bad calls by the referees, who gave the Finns way too many chances, but whatever. 4-2 for the good guys when all was said and done!

Another great game! :rock:

Unbelievable shots on goal difference 52-20. Slovakia's goaltender kept it from being even more of a wipeout.

Watching Finland Denmark now, and some of the worst officiating I have ever
seen at a game.

Almost in the mood to write an email. :evil: :evil:

Set to shatter record

BUFFALO, NEW YORK - DECEMBER 27: New Era Field - 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship

Quote:
The U.S. and Canada are set to shatter the IIHF World Junior Championship attendance record tomorrow with a crowd of more than 40,000 at New Era Field.

The preliminary round game is set to faceoff at 3:00 p.m. ET and will be carried live by various broadcasters in many of the participating countries including TSN and RDS in Canada and NHL Network in the United States.

The previous attendance record for an IIHF World Junior Championship game was 5th January 2009, in Ottawa, between Canada and Sweden, with 20,380 fans witnessing that gold medal game matchup.
