N.A. Juniors Game Night: 12/30

A little Christmas vacation delay... three days worth of CHL scores.

Team Canada Notes:
Canada has named Dustin Tokarski starter for tonight's game vs. the USA (NHL Network - 7 PM EST). Here's hoping that NHL contract doesn't prove to be a distraction for him (and judging from his demeanor throughout his young career, it won't), but it's a great sign that Pat Quinn trusts him for Canada's first big test.
