    And the counterpart to the thread '' Great World Juniors, bad pro career....

    Stats wise, for Canadian players only since I don't remember them all.....

    1988 Trevor Linden (1 point), Éric Desjardins(0 point),
    1989 Martin Gélinas (2 points)
    1990 Kris Draper (2 points)
    1991 Scott Niedermayer (0 points), Martin Lapointe (3 points 0 goals)
    1992 Scott Niedermayer (0 points again...)
    1993 Adrian Aucoin (1 point)
    1994 Bryan McCabe (0 points)
    1995 Ed Jovanoski (2 points)
    2000 Jason Spezza ( 2 points) Brad Richards (2 points)
    2001 Jay Bouwmeester ( 2 points)
    2002 Rick Nash (3 points, 1 goal)


    Obviously, most of that list are defenceman, but you would expect at leas more than what they did during those championships, especially from offensive d-men like Nieds or McCabe or Desjardins. And players like Gélinas and Draper became defensive specialist but nevertheless should've had a better showing (stats wise of course since I don't recall their actual performance and I know that stats are not always the best measure....) I didn't check if some of these players played as 17-year olds or young 18's so it could be another indication as why those poor stats.

    I didn't find stats from 1995 to 2000 but there's surely some players in there too and for all the other countries as well.

    What you have to take into consideration with some of these guys is that they only played in the WJs when they were 17, because they were in the NHL at 18-19. If they had played in the WJs at 18-19, they no doubt would have had better personal stats.

    McCabe came back in 1995 and was named to the All-Star team, he was defenseman of the tournament, and he was Canada's leading scorer.
