While Group A at the 2015 World Junior Championship features arguably the top two teams in this year’s tournament, Group B also features two teams that in recent years have been among the WJC’s best. Those two countries, Sweden and Russia, squared off on Monday night with Sweden coming away with the 3-2 win in that showdown.

In the second part of this Hockey’s Future podcast, I am joined by ISS Hockey scout Phil Myre who provides some of his thoughts on some players from both of those countries that stood out to him in this high profile game. Some of the players discussed include Anton Blidh, William Nylander, Vyacheslav Leshenko, and Dmitri Yudin.
