After providing scouting notes on the Team Canada and Team USA rosters for the upcoming IIHF World Junior Championship, it's time for a look at the rest of the field.

For the sake of brevity, I won't profile every player, so I'm going to select prospects I feel are notable for one reason or another; typically, this means top prospects and/or top recent draft picks.

I'll also reveal my picks for all-tournament team, most valuable player and the medals. Spoiler Alert: One of the teams whose players are scouted here finishes in my top 3.
