Andrew Ladd knows the pressures that prospect Mark Scheifele will face at this years World Junior Championships: "I think at that level with that group, all those guys are used to playing on a big stage, being go-to guys for their individual team". [WFP]

Speaking of Scheifele, he's pretty jazzed up about his second opportunity to suit of for Team Canada: "To have that second chance and to know what happened last year, it was tough to go through that and you definitely don’t want to go through it again. The guys from last year have that in the back of their minds, but don’t think about it too much. We just have to be committed to the main goal. Everyone wants to win that gold medal and no one wants to have that disappointment." [Winnipeg Sun]

Also, this is how Scheifele conducts his interviews: like a baws! [Twitter, via Sunaya Sapurji]
