Day three of the World Juniors schedule was quiet, but the action picks back up today. After two games on Sunday, today's schedule features four contests.

Yesterday's Tournament Action

Chase De Leo was the only Winnipeg Jets prospect who skated last night. His US team played well and picked up a 6-0 win over Germany, but De Leo didn't factor into the scoring. He was also juggled off of the top line.

Flight Schedule

Winnipeg Jets prospects will be featured in three of today's four games. Nikolaj Ehlers and Denmark look to rebound at noon. He will likely spend a load of time going head to head versus fellow Jets prospect Jan Kostalek. Kostalek is arguably the Czech Republic's best defender and despite his game being largely about skating and puck movement, he hits hard with regularity.

Also in action will be Chase De Leo and the Winnipeg Jets trio of Canadians. Petan currently leads the tournament in scoring, can he push forward? Will Morrissey start a streak after getting on the board last game? Eric Comrie is expected to be riding pine, if he sits he may be the favorite to go versus team US on New Years Eve.

The fact that the Canada game is on at the same time as tonight's game will make viewing tough for some.

Warm up the PVR folks.

Go Jets Go!!
