🔴𝕃𝕚𝕧𝕖⫸ World Juniors 2022

Christmas is coming early this year, as the 2022 version of the IIHF World Junior Championship is set to take place in August. The tournament, which usually begins the day after the holiday, was canceled in December due to COVID-19 but is getting picked up again this summer.

The 10-team tournament will start fresh, with some new rosters, new teams and a completely new schedule. Results from the winter will not carry over into summer, so you can flush everything from December away.

The United States enter the tournament as defending champions, after defeating Canada in the 2022 gold medal game. It was the fifth time the country had won the World Junior championship.

Teams will play four preliminary games in a round-robin format within their group, followed by a three-round playoff.

In the group stage, teams earn three points for a regulation win, two points for an overtime win, one point for an overtime loss and no points for a regulation loss.

The top four teams from each group advance to the quarterfinals, where the matchups are determined by seeding. They will cross over between groups for these games: 1A vs. 4B, 1B vs. 4A, 2A vs. 3B and 2B vs. 3A.

The teams that advance to the semifinals will be reseeded.

The winners of the semifinals will face off in the gold medal game. The losers will play for bronze.

Russia was removed from the tournament after the IIHF instituted a ban on all Russian and Belarusian national teams from competing in IIHF play after Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Latvia, who was the Division IA runner-up, was promoted to replace Russia at the tournament.

Belarus was the Division IA winner but was not promoted due to the ban.

No teams will be relegated, so the same 10 countries will compete again in December at the 2023 tournament.

Where are the 2022 World Juniors held?

Location: Edmonton, Alberta

Venue: Rogers Place

The 2022 World Junior Championship will take place in Edmonton, Alberta. All games will be played at Rogers Place, home of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers. It is the first time since 1988 that there are not multiple host cities.

In December of last year, when the 2022 tournament originally commenced, it was set for both Edmonton and Red Deer. The games were split between Rogers Place and the Peavey Mart Centrum in Red Deer, home of the WHL's Red Deer Rebels.

MORE: Why is the World Juniors being played in August?

Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the 2022 tournament was scheduled to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden. However, it was changed to Edmonton in September of 2020, due to the restrictions put in place with COVID-19. Instead, Gothenburg was reassigned to the 2024 tournament.

This year marks the fourth time Edmonton will host World Juniors games, having previously hosted in 1995, 2012 and 2021.
