Hockey Canada says 14 world junior hockey games will be played here Victoria when the 2019 Championship are held in B.C. next year.
Team Canada will host it’s pre-camp in Victoria and two pre-tournment games.
Also, Pool B (TBA) will play all it’s round robin games and that will be followed up by two quarterfinal games.
Barry Petrachenko ,with the organizing committee and BC Hockey says having the games jointly hosted will give it a nice two tier feature.
“It allows it us to run the event side-by-side but also separate. I think Victoria will have its’ flavour and so will Vancouver.”
It’s the first time B.C. has hosted the games since 2006.
