Kent Johnson scores spectacular 'Michigan' goal at World Juniors (0:36)

Blue Jackets prospect Kent Johnson gives Canada a 2-1 lead with this unbelievable 'Michigan' lacrosse-style goal. (0:36)

The 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship was postponed in December due to an outbreak of COVID-19. The tournament will restart on Aug. 9 in Edmonton, Alberta, and conclude with the gold-medal and bronze-medal games on Aug. 20.

Nine out of 10 teams that participated in the earlier event will be back, including Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States. The team from Russia has been excluded because of that nation's invasion of Ukraine, and Latvia will take its place in Group A.

Follow along as the tournament proceeds, with the game schedule and results, along with rosters for all 10 nations.
