This month's special World Junior Championship edition of Dobber Nation is required listening for any prospect-watchers and tourney fanatics-- this episode is all about preparing yourself to find out the most you can about the best under-20 hockey players in the world. We’re going to dissect the roster of all 10 countries -- including Latvia! -- and direct your eyes towards the guys that are working towards becoming household names.
Read on to find out who Brian Kom spoke to this month...
We chat with Russian sports newspaper Sport-Express's Slava Malamud about Team Russia and its abundance of fresh faces looking to make it two in a row.
We’ll then connect with TSN’s Jermain Franklin to find out which players are shaping up to be the team’s leaders and gamebreakers.
Afterwards, we call up United States of Hockey's Chris Peters who has been closely following this year’s Team USA members closely for far beyond the last couple weeks.
And finally, we’re joined by Dobber Hockey’s own prospects guru and WJC correspondent Matt Bugg who gives us the names of a few promising players from each of the other 6 teams competing for gold.
