Forward Anthony Mantha (DET) is the Hockey's Future Prospect of the Month for December. An offensively prolific player since the start of the 2013-14 season, Mantha took his game to another level in December, with 14 points in five QMJHL games and 10 points through the preliminary round of the 2014 World Junior Championship.
After Canada's loss to the Czech Republic in the preliminary round of the 2014 World Junior Championship, head coach Brent Sutter elected to start U20 WJC first-timer Zach Fucale in place of Jake Paterson. The move seemed to make a difference for the Canadians as they won out in the preliminary round to take the top seeding in Group A.
Team Canada will again be competing for a bronze medal at the World Junior Championship, and their opponent will be a familiar one. Russia landed in the battle for bronze by virtue of their 2-1 loss to Sweden, which marks the second straight year that the Russians and Canadians have faced off in the third-place tilt.
