Every year, in advance of the IIHF World Junior tournament that takes place in December, four teams get together for the World Junior Summer Showcase. Last year it took place in Plymouth, Michigan where Erik Brannstrom starred for Team Sweden. This year the Summer Showcase is headed to Kamloops, British Columbia and the Golden Knights are well represented.

The World Junior Summer Showcase begins with practices on July 28th and games get underway on July 30th.

The American players, Kruse and Cotter, are both on Team USA’s Team Blue. Team Canada is split into two teams as well, but their split roster has yet to be released.

Team USA’s Team Blue plays the first game against Elvenes and Team Sweden at 4:00 PM on the 30th.

Notably absent are Erik Brannstrom for Team Sweden and Nic Hague for Team Canada. Both are expected to have a shot at making the NHL or AHL roster this season.

NHL Network is airing six games starting with the USA vs. Sweden game on August 2nd. Here’s the full NHL Network schedule.

The Ryan Reaves vs. George McPhee Hand Of Poker Was Won By #75


  1. Jack Manning

    Nic Hague is too old to be eligible to play in this upcoming WJC and therefore was never going to be considered for this tournament.

  2. Kathleen Craner

    Where is Brannstrom? I would have like to have seen him play. Did Kruse and Suzuki play I didn’t see him? I saw Glass and Cotter but couldn’t tell which one was Elvenes. I know that Glass is Number 8 and Cotter is Number 26. Do you know the other guy’s numbers?
