Germany makes its return to the World Juniors after not being in the Top Division for four years, and starting the tournament facing Team USA will be a significant challenge. The last time they met, in the final pre-tournament game, USA defeated Germany in a 7-1 blowout, thanks in part to Montreal Canadiens prospect Cole Caufield’s four goals, including the game-winner.

Not only that, they’re grouped in with other powerhouses; Canada, Russia, and the Czech Republic will be their other opponents. They do have 6’4” Moritz Seider, who looks to be their most essential player, defending their blue line, and projected top-10 pick in the 2020 NHL Draft Tim Stützle. So, there’s that. They’re also taking on a team that already has a game under their belt, and an emotional one at that, which may work in their favour.

Team USA opened the tournament yesterday taking on long-time rival Team Canada. It was a real nail-biter with Canada eventually coming out on top with a 6-4 win thanks to the projected number-one pick at the 2020 NHL draft, Alexis Lafrenière, scoring seven seconds after the United States tied the game late in the third period.
