2017 World Hockey Championships

Starting this Friday, tune in to the 2017 World Hockey Championships, airing live from Paris, France and Cologne, Germany on SiriusXM NHL Network Radio.

This year Canada fields a roster of veterans and youth, including the likes of Mark Scheifele, Mitch Marner, and Matt Duchene. Other NHLers include Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Jeff Skinner. Head Coach Jon Copper will decide who will be in goal, with his choices including Colorado Avalanche goalie Calvin Pickard and Chad Johnson.

Team USA have some high powered skill, with the likes of Jack Eichel, Dylan Larkin and Anders Lee on the team. Connor Murphy was announced as the captain, while Connor Helleybuyck hopes to get the majority of the start, as Head Coach Jeff Blashill will look to get the team into the medal round like they did when they won bronze back in 2015.
