Tickets packages for the 2017 world junior hockey championship, hosted by Montreal and Toronto, went on sale Monday.
Canada won gold in Toronto at the 2015 tournament, with Helsinki, Finland, hosting the 2016 event. In 2017, Montreal and the Bell Centre will host the medal rounds, while Canada will play five games in Toronto.
"The anticipation is growing as we get set to host this year's National Junior Team selection camp and send our players off to Finland to represent the country at this year's tournament," said Hockey Canada president and CEO Tom Renney in a statement. "At the same time, we are already hard at work to deliver on the 2017 IIHF world junior championship in Montreal and Toronto, and we can't wait to have the chance to welcome the world once again, and demonstrate the passion our fans and volunteers have for the game of hockey."
The schedule for the 2017 world junior hockey championship will be available in the new year.
Canada kicks off its 2016 tournament on Dec. 26 against the United States in Helsinki.
