The World Junior Championships are always massively popular in Canada and this years tournament should be no different with Canada looking to follow up their Gold Medal win at the 2022 tournament this past August, at this 2023 World Junior Championship that is taking place just four months later.
The 2023 tournament will be played from December 26th, 2022 to January 5th, 2023 in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Moncton, New Brunswick. The tournament was originally scheduled to be played in Russia, but their hosting rights were revoked due to the country’s invasion of Ukraine. This will be the third consecutive World Junior tournament hosted by Canada.
The tournament always carries a lot of interest in Canada over the holidays, with a ton of TSN coverage at a time when most Canadians are home on Christmas vacation with time to get invested in the tourney. I’ve received quite a bit of interest from Canadians interesting in wagering on the World Junior games and the tournament winner in the past, so I decided to add this article outlining exactly how to get your bets in on the IIHF World Junior Championships this year.
