The holidays are upon us and the Habsent Minded continues its different podcast series. After finishing the Top 25 Under 25, focus has been shifted toward the 2021 World Junior Championships.

During three previews divided by geography, the crew goes in-depth on every single one of the 10 teams which are getting ready for action in Alberta.

Who will lead the Austrian team in points? Who will be Switzerland’s most tantalizing player to watch? Which of the North American prospects will get drafted first when the 2021 NHL Draft rolls around in July? Which of the three Canadiens’ prospects will strengthen their position in the organization?
