The 2010 IIHF World U20 Championship, commonly referred to as the 2010 World Junior Hockey Championships (2010 WJHC), was the 34th edition of World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. The tournament was hosted in Saskatoon and Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, from December 26, 2009, to January 5, 2010. This was the second time Saskatoon has hosted the tournament, after hosting it in 1991. The medal round, as well as all Canada's preliminary round games, took place in Saskatoon at the Credit Union Centre. The arena underwent renovations and upgrades before the 2010 tournament, including an increase in capacity.[1] Other games were played at the Brandt Centre in Regina, which also received upgrades.[2] In addition, pre-tournament exhibition games were held in other towns and cities throughout the province as well as Calgary, Alberta.[3][4] In the gold-medal match, the U.S.A. defeated the pre-tournament favourites and host country Canada 6-5 in overtime to win their second gold medal and first since 2004, thus ending Canada's bid for a record-breaking sixth consecutive gold medal.[5][6]

Other host candidates[edit]

Initially, Switzerland was chosen to host the tournament, but later withdrew.[7]

Three bid groups submitted letters of intent to host the 2010 tournament prior to the February 1, 2008, deadline:[8]

All three bid groups formally placed their bids before the April 1, 2008 deadline and made their final presentations to the selection committee in Toronto on June 9–10, 2008.[8]

On July 7, 2008, Hockey Canada and the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) announced Saskatoon and Regina have been chosen to host the tournament. This was Saskatchewan's first successful bid in five recent attempts, after failing to land the 1999, 2003, 2006 and 2009 tournaments.[1]

Preliminary round[edit]

Ten teams were divided into two groups of five, each of which play in a single round-robin format. The winner of each group proceeded directly to the tournament semifinals, with the second- and third-place finishers advancing to the quarterfinals. The remaining four teams participated in the relegation round to determine which teams will be relegated to Division I the following year.
