To put it simply, Bruce Peter is a hockey fan from Sasaktoon, Saskatchewan who has an interest in the game beyond the NHL. Since 2010, he's been covering issues surrounding the international game, European professional leagues and junior hockey for SB Nation at Puck Worlds. In early 2010, he covered IIHF World Junior Championships in Saskatoon for Puck Daddy, which gave him an added desire to cover the global outreachs of the game. In late 2012, he moved to Melbourne, Australia and continues to follow the game from one of hockey's lesser developed nations.

The Swiss have had a run of top players on their national teams in recent years, but this year's team is much more anonymous. That doesn't mean they're completely without talent, though. Here's an introduction to some of their top talent.


Star-studded Canada looks to regain WJC gold

Germany just wants a win

Germany has been a 'yo-yo' nation at the U20 World Juniors, constantly going from the championship group to the Division 1 level on an annual basis.

Missing three of their top teenaged talents, Sweden will be relying on its depth at forward as well as the presence of a strong goaltender to defend their World Junior gold medal this year in Ufa, Russia.

A report from TVA Sports has implied that top CHLPA official Derek Clarke is in fact Randy Gumbley, a convicted fraudster who used to run a junior hockey club in Toronto.

Pacioretty, Cole Lead Habs Forwards

The further we look into the 2011-12 NHL season, the more obvious it becomes that Max Pacioretty and Erik Cole led the way for the Canadiens forwards across the board. So where did that place them against the rest of the NHL?

Dalton Thrower, fresh off being drafted 51st overall in 2012, makes his debut on EOTP's Top 25 Under 25 at #16. The tough, all-round defender has a lot to like about his game, but might be too aggressive.

A year after being drafted, former 5th round pick Darren Dietz is starting to earn a name for himself within the Canadiens prospect pool.
