Today at 1:00 PM PT(4:00 PM ET), TSN will be announcing the host for the 2019 World Junior Championship. However, some insiders decided to spill the beans ahead of time.

This will be the first time in ten years that Vancouver has hosted the tournament.

This years WJC will be held in both Toronto & Montreal and kicking off on Boxing Day. Hockey Canada recently named their camp roster, including Vancouver Canucks prospect Guillaume Brisebois who is currently captaining the Charlottetown Islanders in the QMJHL. He was a late cut from the roster last year and we’ll be rooting for him to make it this time around.

We’ll definitely see Brock Boeser representing Team USA. As well as recent first round pick Olli Juolevi playing for Finland, who took home the gold in last years contest.

Next years tournament will take place in Buffalo, New York before returning to the true north strong and free. Are you excited? I know I am!
