The World Junior Summer Showcase will take place in Kamloops, British Columbia from July 28th to August 4th. Michael Rasmussen (Canada), Joe Veleno (Canada), Jared McIsaac (Canada), Keith Petruzzelli (USA), Alec Regula (USA) and Jonatan Berggren (Sweden) will represent the Red Wings at the annual evaluation camp for potential World Junior Championship team candidates.
According to NHL.com’s Adam Kimelman reports that some of the games will be televised on the NHL Network in the U.S.; TSN will cover the tournament in Canada:
United States Blue vs. Sweden, 7 p.m. ET
United States White vs. Finland, 10 p.m. ET
Sweden vs. Finland, 4 p.m. ET
Canada White vs. United States Blue, 7 p.m. ET
Canada Red vs. United States White, 10:30 p.m. ET
United States vs. Sweden, 4 p.m. ET, NHLN, TSN
Canada vs. Finland, 9 p.m. ET, NHLN, TSN2
United States vs. Finland, 4 p.m. ET, NHLN, TSN
Canada vs. Sweden, 9 p.m. ET, NHLN, TSN2
Canada vs. United States, 5 p.m. ET, NHLN, TSN
Finland vs. Sweden, 8 p.m. ET, NHLN (TSN2 tape delay, 11 p.m. ET)
Kimelman continues, mostly noting that the WJSS will serve as the formal draft-year debuts for top 2019 draft picks like Jack Hughes.
The WJSS was held in Plymouth, MI in 2018, and the level of hockey was excellent. If you live in British Columbia, or can watch the tournament on TSN, I highly recommend that you do so as the games are anything but “summer hockey.”
