It’s official: Hockey Canada announced Monday that Saskatoon and Regina have landed the 2010 world junior hockey championships.
The Saskatoon/Regina group had been bidding on either the 2010 or 2012 championships.
“You started the bar to grow in this championship and I know we’ll be able to do a better and better job every time we host in this province,” said Hockey Canada’s Bob Nicholson as he made the announcement.

From Tim Wharnsby at the Globe & Mail,
New NHLPA boss Paul Kelly arrived at his first world under-20 championship on Wednesday to mix and mingle with NHL scouts and general managers as well as IIHF officials. One of the causes he has championed since he took over his office on lower Bay St. in Toronto was to better market hockey in the United States.
He should have a chat with the people that run USA Hockey. For the second year in a row, Canada and the U.S. will meet in the semifinals at the world junior and for the second straight year hockey’s governing body down south made available for interviews after practice only three players and coach John Hynes.
