Last year, 15.4 million Canadians watched some part of the World Juniors on TSN.

"The World Juniors has become a Canadian hockey holiday tradition and this is an opportunity for fans to watch TSN's coverage of the tournament live from their PCs, smartphones or tablets," said Mark Silver, Head of Digital for TSN. "We are looking forward to working with the NeuLion team to give fans a best-in-class online experience as they cheer on Team Canada."

Separately, in the United States, the NeuLion Sports Platform will deliver, through NHL.com, a complimentary digital service to fans to watch all of Team USA's games live on NHL.com. The live coverage, only available inside the U.S., will be supplemented by wraparound content on NHL.com including the latest tournament information, scores, and highlights to ensure fans don't miss any of the action.

"We will be providing extensive coverage of the 2013 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship on NHL.com and NHL Network," said Steve McArdle, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Planning for the NHL. "We will be delivering more than 15 live games on the NHL Network, and in partnership with NeuLion will stream all of Team USA's games live on NHL.com to our United States audience."

Hosted in Ufa, Russia, the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship will mark the 37th time hockey players under 20 years old have competed in the Championship Tournament.
