How to Watch Devils Prospects Face Off at WJC Semi-Final

Published

One New Jersey Devils prospect will play for gold. The other will play for bronze.

Devils prospect defenseman Seamus Casey faces off with forward prospect Lenni Hameenaho today in the World Junior Championship semi-final between Team USA and Team Finland.

Each Devils prospect has played a key role in their respective team’s success thus far. Through four games of the tournament thus far, Casey’s dished five assists. His most prominent offensive showing came in the quarterfinal, a 7-2 USA victory over Team Latvia.

Hameenaho’s had a strong tournament as well, although a little snake-bitten. He’s been creating chances on Finland’s top line, both for himself and his teammates. Hameenaho’s accrued two goals and four points in five contests, although the metrics suggest he should probably have a few more points in his pocket.

How to Watch

The Devils prospects will face each other on Thursday at 1:30 EST. If you don’t know how to watch, all World Junior Championships have been broadcast on the NHL Network. You can view the contest there, however, there are alternatives for those without the network’s access. FuboTV customers and viewers with DirecTV Stream can also access tournament games. If you’re out of those options, highlights, tournament schedule, stats, standings, photos, rosters, and more, can be viewed on IIHF’s website.

Win or lose, both Devils’ prospects will have the ability to play for hardware after today. It’s certainly good news for the Devils organization that both of their prospects at the tournament are contributing to meaningful games with high stakes. With Canada bouncing from the tournament early, the gold is ripe for the taking.
