World Junior Championships, baby!

The preliminary World Junior Championship rosters are available here.

I tried hunting through the prospects for Oilers players, and here is what I found:

Team SwedenTeam Sweden
Oscar Klefbom (D)

Team SlovakiaTeam Slovakia
Martin Gernat (D)
Martin Marincin (D)

Team LatviaTeam Latvia
Kristians Pelss (F)

Team Czech RepublicTeam Czech Republic
David Musil (D)

So, by my count, we have 5 Oilers prospects at the World Junior Championships this year… 4 of them on defense. Interesting.

    I’ll be away for most of this in Mexico. I gotta say, I’m excited as hell to be going to Mexico, but damn it that I’m going to likely miss almost this entire tourney. It’s my fave tourney of the year, except for when the Oil are in the playoffs.

    What’s up with team Germany, is there some kind of lower tier tourney for lesser teams?

    I was actually disappointed that Germany isn’t in it this year, was really looking forward to seeing how Tobias Rieder fared.

    Am I mistaken, hasn’t Germany participated before in the WJ’s?

    Yah Germany was in it last year, but they lost both their games in the Relegation round last year, which means they were dropped to Div I for this year. Norway was the other team that dropped.
