For Canucks fans, the 2015 World Junior Championships will be one of the more interesting ones in recent memory, as Vancouver has three prospects participating: Canada's Jake Virtanen, USA's Thatcher Demko, and Sweden's Gustav Forsling. While fan of teams like the Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs will get to enjoy their prospects be stars of their native teams (I'm looking at you William Nylander and Nikolaj Ehlers), only Demko expected is expected to play a critical role for his team, as Virtanen and Fosling look to be penciled in to their lineups as supporting players. 

The cream of the 2015 draft crop will also be playing, including Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel, and Noah Hanafin, but these names will likely be long gone by the time the Canucks come to make a selection with their 2015 first round draft pick. So who are some of the lesser known names that Canucks fans should keep an eye on during the tournament? Find out after the jump.
