The world juniors are less than a month away and some kids are heading into the international tournament with a lot of momentum
As we’ve reached December, it’s hard not to think about the upcoming world juniors. A couple of teams have already released their final camp rosters, with more coming very soon. There will undoubtedly be surprises and the first for me was New Jersey pick (Penn State commit) Aarne Talvitie not getting a shot with Finland. Talvitie was one of the Finns’ best players in the summer, but the squad was also missing some key forwards, so perhaps there was just too much of a skill set overlap. At least he’s still eligible for next year’s tourney. In the meantime, let’s take a spin around the prospect world to see who’s been hot lately.
