Players to Watch on Team Canada

Macklin Celebrini

One of the projected top picks in the 2024 NHL Draft, look for 17-year-old Macklin Celebrini to make his presence felt in this years tournament.

Possessing tremendous playmaking ability, Celebrini is a gifted passer that can create scoring-plays out of thin air. With stellar speed and acceleration, the highly-touted prospect has garnered plenty of success at the NCAA level, having posted 25-points in 15 games played.

Look for the potential 2024 first-overall pick to introduce himself to the hockey world, leading the Canadians as a top scoring option, and providing no shortage of valuable offence in this year’s tournament.

Denton Mateychuk

Set to serve as a stalwart on the blueline at this years tournament, look for Denton Mateychuk to act as a cool-handed facilitator for the Canadians this year.

Excelling at making crisp tape-to-tape passes, Mateychuk is a sensational playmaker that can find the open man from virtually anywhere on the ice. Not just a terrific passer, Mateychuk is more than capable of putting the puck in the back of the net, having scored six-goals to go along with 29-assists in just 24 games for the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Look for Mateychuk to serve as a leader on this years World Junior squad as he leads the charge for the Canadians in their quest for gold.

Scott Ratzlaff

Primed to serve as the top goaltender on the 2024 Canadian World Junior team, look for Scott Ratzlaff to continue cementing himself as one of the top young netminders in the game.

While he’s had a challenging season on a porous Seattle Thunderbirds squad in the WHL this year, Ratzlaff has been brilliant at the international level. After finishing the Hlinka Gretzky Cup with a tremendous 97.6 Save-Percentage to go along with a phenomenal 0.50 Goals-Against Average, Ratzlaff uses tremendous movement and positioning to cut off any easy shooting angles for the opposition.

Bank on Ratzlaff to play a pivotal part of the success had by Team Canada at the 2024 World Juniors and watch as he continues to boost his stock at the top-level.
