The 2013 edition of the IIHF World Junior Championships doesn't get officially going until Boxing Day, but things kick off on the exhibition calendar this morning as Canada faces Finland. The game airs on TSN beginning at 9:30am ET (6:30am PT), live from Vantaa, Finland.
The game is the first chance to evaluate the final roster for Canada and for Finnish fans to prepare for a couple cuts that need to be made before the tournament begins.
Here are the lines for each club, courtesy of TSN's Mark Masters (@markhmasters).

I got an update from Todd Nelson on some of the Oiler prospects. We chatted about Magnus Paajarvi, Anton Lander, Martin Marincin as well as the Jordan Eberle and Taylor's quest to take on more of a leadership role. Nelson had some great insight into his young players.

In Calgary this is greeted with great joy, dancing in the streets, and various acts of nefarious merriment with barnyard animals*. In Edmonton, well, that isn’t really our thing.
*This may or may not be true.
