You wouldn’t associate a huge hockey tournament with the summer, but it’s happening! The World Juniors will touch down once more in Edmonton this summer, after cancelling the original dates late last year. Here’s a quick recap of what to expect.

As with the original plan, 10 of the best junior teams from around the world will be facing off, including Finland, America, and of course, Canada. While a few games were played in the winter, the organizers have decided that a complete reset was the best move this go around.
