About the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge

The 2014 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge will bring together the top players in the world born in 1997 or later. The regional under-17 program is the first step in Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence. Many players who compete at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge go on to represent Canada with the National Men’s Under-18 Team, National Junior Team and National Men’s Team.  The event is scheduled for Dec. 29, 2013 to Jan. 4, 2014 in Cape Breton, N.S.

The gold medal game will be held Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. AT and shown on TSN/RDS, Hockey Canada’s official broadcasters. All other games at the tournament, including preliminary round contests, placement games, semifinals and the bronze medal game, will be available through FASTHockey at hockeycanada.fasthockey.com.

Since the first World Under-17 Hockey Challenge (then known as the Quebec Esso Cup) in 1986, more than 1,200 NHL draft picks have played in the tournament, including nine of the last 12 first-overall selections (Ilya Kovalchuk, 2001; Rick Nash, 2002; Marc-André Fleury, 2003; Alexander Ovechkin, 2004; Erik Johnson, 2006; Patrick Kane, 2007; John Tavares, 2009; Taylor Hall, 2010; Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, 2011).
