World Junior Tournament - Ottawa

As I am anticipating the WINTER CLASSIC coming New Year's Day, I have been watching the high-lights of the World Junior Tournament happening now in Ottawa, Canada. This is probably great relief for Senators fans who are suffering with their NHL franchise.
For several years Upper Deck has graced their sets with players in their international jerseys. It is a refreshing turn to see some of these players BEFORE their NHL career. For others it is their shining moment.

While this tournaments crop may not yield any outstanding goalies - as the favorites are stomping the minnows - there will probably be a few top scorers that will emerge. CANADA, USA, SWEDEN and RUSSIA all won games with 10 or more goals. Canada winning with a record 15:0 victory in the first round !
