World Juniors 2023

Meet the Team: Finland's roster for the 2023 World Juniors

Few countries consistently find a way to punch above their weight in the World Juniors like Finland. They may not boast the strongest lineup on paper, but more often than not, there they are in the medal rounds, often competing for gold.

They're going to have rely even more on the teamwork and tactical side of the game than ever this tournament. The lack of high-end talent down the middle, on defence, and in-goal are all weaknesses to overcome if this team has any chance of medalling at this year's World Juniors in Halifax and Moncton.

Here's the thing though. You can't ever count these Finns out. Especially not after they pushed Canada to the brink in the summer World Juniors, capturing silver in the process. Let's look at the group tasked with finishing the job in this year's tournament.
