The NHL lockout made this year's World Junior Hockey Championship the must-see hockey event of the winter. Held every year between December 26th and the first week in January, these games feature the best hockey players in the world under 20 years of age playing for their country.
This year, except for a couple of notable exceptions, all the best young players in the world played in Ufa, Russia, in a tournament won by the team from the United States. It is nice to have something to thank the NHL lockout for.
This list is a record of which drafted NHL prospects from each team made it to the tournament. I used the list put together on the TSN website before Christmas and have modified it with the current rosters from the 2013 IIHF U20 World Championship site.
Each NHL team's prospects are listed here, along with the year they were drafted, and the round and position they were drafted in. Any player statistics come from the Internet Hockey Database. Over 98 percent of the stories on the various players come from either the Hockey Future or Elite Prospect websites.
This list does not include how these prospects performed in the tournament.
