"The World Junior Championship was always a staple of Christmas. I can remember growing up watching World Junior tournaments as a kid. It's growing in the (United) States and you're getting a lot more people watching because of the TV coverage and how well the U.S. junior program has developed their kids and the success they're having. It's a great tournament. I think next to the Stanley Cup Final, it's one of the best hockey events that there is." -- Florida Panthers coach Peter DeBoer
"I was just playing and trying to enjoy it. It kind of just passes you by, but I guess that's the nature of the beast."
-- Chris Kreider on playing in the 2010 World Junior Championship
