Heading into their fourth and final match of the 2014 World Junior Championship's preliminary round, Germany needed to reverse their trend of the first three games in which they surrendered copious amounts of goals to the opposition. And reverse it they did, as the Germans notched a 3-0 win over the Czech Republic to at least give themselves a shot at avoiding the relegation round.
The 2013 World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia, proved to be of incredible value to Team Germany. Despite several preliminary round losses of a clear nature, namely to Canada (9-3), the USA (8-0) and Russia (7-0), the team managed to gain a critical point in a 2-1 OT loss to Slovakia and then managed to defeat Latvia (5-2) in a do-or-die relegation game. With that, Germany had maintained the class and is participating in this year’s WJC in Malmo, Sweden.
With the 2013 NHL Draft now passed, the focus can now turn to the class of 2014. Since Beyond Tomorrow looks at those players eligible for the next draft class, this is the last opportunity to discuss the 2014 draft-eligible players before shifting attention to the 2015's. With that in mind, here is a recap of the best of the late-1995 and 1996-born players.
