With Christmas break having come and gone, most of the Canucks prospects have been taking a short break from playing hockey and spending time with their “families” (aka billets in the CHL).  While not much hockey has been played in the past week the exception would be the IIHF World Under-20 Championships (aka the World Juniors). 

The Canucks currently have three prospects playing in high profile positions within the World Juniors.  While normal prospect coverage will continue next week (along with any activity this past week), this week we will focus on Jake Virtanen, Thatcher Demko and Gustav Forsling.

Continue past the jump for all World Junior activity.

Today is the round robin match that everyone has been waiting for. Team Canada vs. Team Our Parents Immigrated from Canada. As a child of the 80s it seems odd to consider the US as Canada's chief hockey rival, but I can no longer trap myself in 1987 and continue to believe that the Russians are the greatest test for Canada.

This game preview could take the high road and talk about how great the US National Team Development Program is, and how I wish that Hockey Canada had something resembling anything close to that. We could talk about how this game could be a gold medal preview and features the two undefeated teams from Group A and a victory has the high stakes of a much easier path to the medal round, though losing to the Swiss or the Czechs would be unlikely for either of these teams.

I'm not sure there's any one formula for road success. The going theory in hockey lore, though, suggests you build an early lead, weather a storm and with the help of solid goaltending, leave the opposition's building victorious. Vancouver was able to check all these items off their list, en route to an impressive 3-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks.

I'll tell you how it all went down on the other side of the jump.
