Every NHL-affiliated player skating at the 2023 World Juniors

The Montreal Canadiens will have a very merry holiday season courtesy the World Juniors.

The Canadiens, scrapping their way through the bottom of the Atlantic Division in the 2022-23 season, will see some cheer spread throughout the organization by way of the 2023 World Juniors.

Montreal leads all 32 NHL clubs with six players participating in the annual year-end tournament, held from December 26, 2022 to January 5, 2023 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Moncton, New Brunswick.

They’re note alone, though. In all, 11 teams have at least four prospects participating at the World Juniors, and 20 teams have at least three players skating in the tournament.

Only the Colorado Avalanche, Detroit Red Wings, and Edmonton Oilers have one single solitary player participating in the tournament.
