Two games haven't decided the fate of the two relegation round combatants at the 2014 World Junior Championship, so Germany and Norway will play one more to decide which team will compete at the 2015 WJC next year in Canada.
With the preliminary round now in the books, eight of the 10 teams taking part in the 2014 World Junior Championship can look forward to battling it out for medals beginning with the four quarterfinals matches on Thursday. But the other two teams on the outside looking in, Germany and Norway, are in the more precarious position of having to qualify for next year's top level of the WJC.
After a two year absence, Norway will once again be represented in the world’s best U20 tournament, the World Junior Championship, beginning this week in Malmo, Sweden. The team’s last appearance was in Buffalo, NY in 2011, where there was no avoiding elimination, despite a face-saving 3-1 victory over Germany to end the tournament. So much time has passed that not one player from that team will be in Southern Sweden for this tournament.
