The preliminary round has come and gone at the 2013 U18 World Junior Championship, and Groups A and B each featured one fairly dominant team.
Team Canada won their first two contests at the 2013 U18 World Junior Championship, over Slovakia and Germany, but neither were in as convincing a fashion as might have been expected. But, in Canada's 10-1 win over Switzerland, the Canadians seemed to have all aspects of their game operating like a well-oiled machine as they head into their key match-up versus Sweden.
Canadian national team coach Don Hay is heading to Sochi as a man with a great deal of experience ranging from the NHL (Calgary and Phoenix) right on down to over 20 years of experience in Canadian juniors, having won the Memorial Cup on three separate occasions. Now it’ll be his duty to quickly turn an extremely talented group of young men into a championship caliber team.
