How the IIHF World Junior Championship calendar is formed

Youth hockey is traditionally the main sports event in Russia and Canada on New Year's holidays and the tournament at the junction of 2021 and 2022 will be no exception. The organizers have shaped the calendar so that all group matches will take place as early as 2021 and the playoffs will start in the new calendar year.

In the group stage, each team will play four games and the groups are determined based on the team rankings so that the quintets are roughly equal in strength.

Where to play in the group stage

World Junior Hockey Championship

2022 WJHC is played in two Canadian cities - Edmonton and Red Deer, which are located in the province of Alberta, 150 kilometers from each other. Naturally, the capital of the tournament is Edmonton, almost a city of millions, where a new elite arena for more than 18,000 spectators was opened in 2016. All Group A games will be played at Rogers Place, the home site of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, where the host Canadians will play.
