The 2009 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships is coming to Hockey Country. Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson announced during a press conference at Scotiabank Place on Wednesday that the hockey tournament featuring some of the world's best under-20 players would be played in Ottawa.

"Everyone (in Ottawa) supported it and that really helped us make the decision," Nicholson said. "All levels of hockey were involved (in the bid). Ottawa was definitely the best bid.

Ottawa Senators and Scotiabank Place owner Eugene Melnyk, who is chair of the bid committee, was ecstatic with Hockey Canada's decision.

"Today's announcement is deeply gratifying. This will leave a lasting legacy on Ottawa. The passion for the game runs deep here. Every corner of this community supported our efforts. We're excited and ready to host the world."

During the tournament, 31 games will be held over 10 days at two arenas. Scotiabank Place - home of the Ottawa Senators -- will host 17 games. The Ottawa 67's home rink -- the Civic Centre -- will host the remaining 14.
