Game Day Preview: Canada vs Czech Republic

The fact that Canada is 2-0 to start this year’s tournament is not surprising, but the way they got through the first two games of the 2019 World Junior Championships was fairly unpredictable.

GDB 37.0 Wrap Up: The Christmas fog falls the Oilers in 4-2 loss

The post-Christmas fog was real for the Edmonton Oilers Thursday night,…
