2022 World Junior Championship schedule

Canada will play Finland in championship on Saturday

by Adam Kimelman @NHLAdamK / NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

The 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship is being held at Rogers Place in Edmonton from Aug. 9-20.

Each game will be televised live on NHL Network in the United States and on TSN and RDS in Canada.

The tournament was originally scheduled for Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alberta. After four days of play, the tournament was postponed Dec. 29 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus.

Players who were eligible for the elite under-20 international tournament in December remained eligible for the rescheduled tournament, regardless of whether they had turned 20. Results and statistics from the December games do not count.

The United States won the 2021 WJC, defeating Canada in the championship game, but was eliminated by Czechia in the quarterfinals. The last team to win consecutive tournaments was Canada, which won five straight from 2005-09.

The top four teams in each group advanced to the quarterfinals, which were held on Aug. 17. The semifinals were held on Aug. 19, and the championship and third-place games will be held on Aug. 20.

There will be no relegation round, meaning the same 10 teams will play in the 2023 WJC, which will be held Dec. 26-Jan. 5, 2023, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Moncton, New Brunswick.
