If you are a World Junior Championship hockey fan in the United States without access to the NHL network, you need look no further than NHL.com for coverage.

Earlier in December, the website announced that it would be carrying every game the United States team played online in a live-streaming format.

The preliminary round is set to open up on Wednesday, December 26th at 4:30 a.m ET with the Canadian team taking on the Germans. TSN, as always, has Canadian fans covered while also offering those North of the border a pay-per-view option on its website.

Worth noting is that this PPV option is not available to anyone outside of Canada.

For the rest of us, there is NHL network's coverage and NHL.com. Here is a look at which games you will be able to see via the NHL network and NHL.com. (Again, all games played by the United States will be available online on NHL.com)
