Toronto To Host World Juniors In 2015 And 2017

Hockey Canada has a news conference planned for Thursday where it is expected they will announce that Toronto and Montreal will share the hosting duties for the 2015 and 2017 World Junior Hockey Championships.

Bob McKenzie of TSN is reporting that the 2015 tournament will see Montreal host the preliminary round and Toronto host the medal round. In 2017 the roles will be reversed and Toronto will get the preliminary round, while Montreal will host the medal round.

Although no location has been announced about where the contests will be played, games will likely take place at the Air Canada Centre and the Bell Centre, where the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens play respectively.
