The 2012 IIHF Junior World Championship...

...begins next week, with Calgary and Edmonton serving as host cities.

Here's a look at the schedule.

GROUP A consists of (in my predicted order of finish): Sweden, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland, Latvia
GROUP B consists of (in my predicted order of finish): USA, Canada, Finland, Czech Republic, Denmark

If I'm correct, then the quarterfinals would be:
Canada over Slovakia; Russia over Finland

The semifinals would be:
USA over Russia; Sweden over Canada

The Gold Medal Game would be:
USA over Sweden

The tournament begins Dec. 26 and runs through Jan. 5.
