The schedule for the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia has been released, with host nations and defending champions Canada opening the tournament on Boxing Day against Denmark, and facing Russia in their New Year’s tilt to end the group round.
Using timely offence from Meghan Agosta and brilliant penalty killing, Canada’s women’s hockey team ended a long winless drought against its biggest rival.
Agosta scored twice and Canada’s penalty killing unit was a perfect 6-for-6 in a 3-1 victory over the United States on Monday night.
