World Juniors coverage

9 posts in this topic

Is there any TV coverage of the WJC? I would love a chance to see some of that hockey. Next to the Olympics its my favorite.

I know the games are all on the NHL Center Ice Package. I have that through my cable company. I was a little hesitant to get it at first, but I have to tell you it was money well spent! Just to see the World Junior games in my opinion is worth the $120 I paid for it. Not to mention the 3 or 4 Wild games each year that aren’t televised. I also love watching the Pittsburgh Penguins games. That team is fun to watch with Crosby and Malkin. I am completely sold on Crosby. That kid is the real deal! Every shift he makes something happen.

Call your cable company. I know last year they were reducing the price drastically around this time of year for the remainder of the season. It’s worth the money. If you call and get it hooked up today there are some great games on. Canada plays today at noon, the Wild play at 6:30 vs Toronto (no local TV coverage by the way), and USA plays at 8:30. Another full hockey day for me! If only there was a Gopher game on to cap it all off.

according to USA hockey, looks like all the games are on NHL Center Ice Package. There is also a pay web audio feed as well.

FYI....

Jeff Frazee played the final five games of the World Junior Championship for Team USA and finished with a 4-1 record, a 1.72 goals against average and a.939 save percentage. He is 11-1 in IIHF championship competition lifetime with a gold (2005 IIHF World Under-18 Championship) and bronze (2007 IIHF World Junior Championship) medal to his credit.

NOTES: Erik Johnson was named the best defenseman in the World Junior Championship by the IIHF directorate. He is only the second U.S. blueliner in the history of the event to receive the honor, joining Joe Corvo, who was honored in 1997... The U.S. had two players on the six-member media all-star team, including Erik Johnson on defense and forward Patrick Kane.

At each IIHF World Championship, awards are presented to the three best players of each team. The recipients for Team USA were defensemen Erik Johnson and Jack Johnson as well as forward Patrick Kane... Erik Johnson finished as Team USA's leading point-getter with 4-6—10 in seven games, including 1-1-2 in the bronze-medal contest. He had at least one point in each of the team's last six games... Patrick Kane was the leading goal-scorer with five. Kane had 5-4—9 in seven tournament games.

They finished with the bronze when they beat the host team Sweden 4-2.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
