    Does anyone know anything about the WJC being televised in the United States? I remember last year there was some coverage of it on ESPN.

    How about this year?



    Thanks!

    The only coverage ESPN ever had was the lockout year and they showed the '04 gold medal game via tape delay.

    Yep I wouldn't bet on ESPN on showing the games. Screw them anyway. I would look for Fox Sports to cover the US games or maybe CI picking up the Canadian feed.

    Center Ice should show all the games, but I doubt they'll show more then the US games.

    Center Ice showed alot (not all) of the games last year. I would assume they plan on doing the same this year.

    NHL Center Ice had the tournament back in 03-04 all the way through last season, So I expect nothing less than at least the USA games, and likely some Canada ones too.

    CI last season only showed the US games and when they were out they did not show the finals or any team Canada games.

    Last year FSN North and a few other FSN's showed all of the USA games... I expect the same this year... especially on FSN with all of the WCHA & CCHA players in this tournament for USA

    If Versus wanted to be taken seriously as a hockey network, they should show the games in my opinion.

    I'm assuming since nobody has mentioned it yet, nobody actually knows yet, but does anyone have any idea if the FSN in the Pittsburgh area will broadcast anything. I'm pretty sure it's just called Fox Sports Pittsburgh. Thanks if anyone can provide some info; it'd really be a treat to catch at least SOME games... I had to listen on a delayed internet feed a year ago and had to fight some connection problems so it'd definitely be great.

    Actually Fox and Center Ice did not even show the USA-Czech QF game. I had to listed to the radio broadcast on the USA Hockey website.

    Perhaps you get "boned" and don't get to see the Canada games, because, oh, I don't know, you live in canada? I don't go to pennsylvania and expect to see Islander games.

    How can you expect Versus to make room for something as insignificant as the WJC's when they have bull riding, fly fishing, and redneck potato sack race championships!!! The nerve of some people....:shakehead

    I couldn't find any info, but if any of you are going to be visiting Canada over the holidays, or are able to somehow pick up TSN in the States, they will have 3 of the 4 US round robin games:

    Tue Dec 26 vs Germany 9am ET
    Wed Dec 27 vs Canada 1pm ET
    Sat Dec 30 vs Slovakia 11am ET

    They will also be carrying one quarterfinal and all of the semifinal and final games regardless of who's playing.

    Tue Jan 2 Quartefinal 1pm ET
    Wed Jan 3 Semifinal 10am ET
    Wed Jan 3 Semifinal 1pm ET
    Fri Jan 5 Bronze Medal 10am ET
    Fri Jan 5 Gold Medal 1pm ET

    This could be why Canadian fans heading to the States half expect to see Canada games down there... for the World Jrs and Olympics we focus on more than just ourselves. For the Olympics NBC is very, very focused on American athletes, and rightly so, but they've earned a reputation of doing so at the cost of ignoring big stories involving other countries. Even in the NHL there's usually one "all-American" matchup a week, but that's a bit different since there are Canadian players everywhere.

    For the World Juniors, sadly, widespread coverae of any team just isn't there in the States... unless the country ends up winning gold, in which case ESPN might decide to show the game later on. I'm so used to having hockey on TV almost every day,I don't know what I'd do if I moved to the States!

    I've heard that XM will carry some of the WJC games btw[so if you can't watch them at least you can listen to them].
