Starting Sunday, the best prospects in hockey will skate against one another at the World Junior Hockey Championship in Buffalo, N.Y. It likely will be a knockout fight between the United States and Canada.

And some of Colorado's best will be front and center.

Drew Shore and Jason Zucker, standouts for the University of Denver, will suit up for the defending world champion Americans. And Colorado College's Jaden Schwartz will play for Canada.

The who's-who list of future stars is long. Tyson Barrie, the Avalanche's third-round draft pick last year, will play for Canada. Ryan Bourque, son of former Avs and Bruins star Ray Bourque, will line up for Team USA. And Avs draft pick Sami Aittokalia, a fourth-rounder this year, will be in goal for Finland [read rest of article].

Brock Nelson had 2 goals. He's pretty good at hockey.
