Kingston— The World Junior Championship Gold Medal game is coming to the Rogers K-Rock Centre. In a deal with TSN and Hockey Canada, the Kingston Frontenacs have secured the rights to air the broadcast of the Gold Medal game live on the centre-ice video board at the Rogers K-Rock Centre on Sunday, January 5, 2014. The event is free for ticket holders for the Sunday, January 5 game when the Kingston Frontenacs host the Windsor Spitfires. With the conflicting game times, the Kingston Frontenacs have pushed back their game time to 4:00 p.m. Doors will open at 12:00 p.m.
"The World Juniors are the ultimate showcase of junior hockey, and like our fans, we get swept up in cheering for Team Canada," said Justin Chenier, Executive Director of Business Operations with the Kingston Frontenacs. "Thanks to TSN and Hockey Canada, our fans can take in the action from both games without missing a play, in the best place in Kingston to see hockey, the Rogers K-Rock Centre."
This may also result in Fronts Fans seeing their favorite Frontenacs represent their home country of Finland. Defenceman, Mikko Vainonen and Forward, Henri Ikonen are currently participating at the World Juniors in Sweden.
