The junior crowns start the championship with a premiere against Russia late on the second day.

Before that, they play a training match against Austria during the night towards Christmas Eve.

Tomas Montén, the national team captain, has now appointed Emil Andrae as team captain at the JVM in Red Deer and Edmonton (Canada).

- It is clear that I was happy and it is clear that it is a great honor to be team captain in a JVM for Sweden.

Proud and happy, says Andrae.

Many great players have previously been assigned the role of a championship.

- There are many well-known people on that list so it is clear that it is fun to be among them.

Andrae makes his second JVM.

- By myself I want to show what a good player I am and I want to lead the group both on and off the ice.

We as a team have all hopes to go far.

Vice captains will be Simon Edvinsson and Alexander Holtz.

SVT broadcasts the championship.
