The World Juniors begin today with three games on the schedule before Canada takes on Slovakia at 8pm EST.

With three games on the schedule tonight before Canada faces Slovakia, we have a packed day of coverage planned for you. In order to reduce clutter, we're going to have one mega thread for all of the non-Canadian games each day until the round robin is over.
