The World Junior Championship officially begins today, with four big games to start the tournament.

Among these duels, we will have the opportunity to see Canada in action for the first time, as well as the Finns, among others.

In fact, an interesting prospect from the Montreal Canadiens has been given a huge honor by his native country, as he will act as captain of the powerful Finnish team.

Oliver Kapanen, who was a second round pick in 2021, was named the team's undisputed leader, despite the fact that there are several high quality prospects in the lineup.



In 31 games this season in Finland's top hockey league, the Liiga, Kapanen has 13 points.
