The 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship hockey tournament is available to watch on several platforms for fans in the United States and Canada. 

Ten teams from around the world are scheduled to compete at Edmonton and Red Deer in Alberta, Canada from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 in pursuit of a gold medal. The teams were divided into two groups, with Canada in Group A and the United States in Group B. Viewers in Canada will be able to find coverage of the tournament on TSN while viewers in the United States can watch each tournament game on NHL Network. 

After arriving to Edmonton and Red Deer in Alberta, Canada on Dec. 13, each player served a mandated five-day quarantine period. However, the IIHF announced that all 11 pre-tournament games were canceled, and limited each team to one matchup ahead of the official tournament on Thursday, Dec. 23. With the recent surge of COVID-19, the tournament will go on with additional restrictions in place. 

Here is a complete guide to find live streams for the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship in both the United States and Canada.
