Congrats to @Phil The Thrill for winning B pool last year and coming up to the A pool.


Leaderboard/Team Spreadsheet: 



  • Each team will consist of 3 forwards, 2 defensemen, and 1 country's goaltending (ex. Team Canada Goalies).
  • Snake draft order.
  • The majority of the draft will be done offline. As soon as 10 teams have been filled, I will use a website to determine the draft order. *Website is http://www.draftpicklottery.com/*.
  • There will be a re-draft for cut, injured, or otherwise unavailable players who were picked. More on that below.
  • No trading picks.
  • Try not to "name drop".
  • Tag the GM picking after you to alert them of their pick.
  • The winner of Group B will advance to Group A's invite only pool next year, and the last place GM of Group A will be relegated to Group B next year.
  • In the event of a tie, the GM with a higher Points Per Game average will be ranked above the GM with a lower Points Per Game average. In case of the rare event of a double tie, the most goals scored will win.


Scoring System: FYI Relegation Games Count Towards Points

  • Goal & Shootout Winning Goal - 1 point
  • Assist - 1 point
  • Win - 1 point
  • Shutout - 1 point



Time Line:


Draft Order - The lottery will be conducted on Saturday December 3rd.


Draft Start - The draft will start on Sunday December 4th at 8 AM PST. Drafting will not be permitted before our start date.


Draft Limits/Key Dates - The Draft will run with 6 hour time limits from 8 AM PST - 12 AM PST every day from Sunday December 5th until Monday December 20th at 11:59 PST. From Tuesday December 21st to Wednesday December 22nd, the draft will have a 1 hour time limit from 8 AM PST until 12 AM PST to ensure the draft's completion before the start of the tournament.


Player Swaps - In case you choose a player and they are cut from the team or injured prior to Friday December 23rd at 7:59 AM PST, GM's may re-select players based on the draft position of the player they lost. This is not a first come first serve re-draft.


NHL Players - If you select a player like Juraj Slafkovsky with the hopes he will be released to play in the WJC Tournament, you are welcome to do so. Should he not be released by his NHL team, you will be able to re-pick a player of the same position on Friday December 23nd during the re-draft. The re-draft will begin at 8AM PST and end at 11:59PST. Time limits will be determined by the amount of picks needed to be made.


IIHF on Twitter: "The groups for the 2023 #WorldJuniors have been  determined! @HockeyCanada will lead Group A in Halifax, and @usahockey will  lead Group B in Moncton. More: https://t.co/RDy0lX2Yxt Annonce des groupesimage.png.57cd493b7528ea234c1f925c6d5aaeec.png
