The calendar has turned to December, so you know what that means: World Junior Championships!

The annual U20 hockey showcase is beginning to kick into high gear, with nations announcing their camp rosters.

The Czech Republic announced its camp roster today, and it features two familiar Bruin names: Daniel Bukac and Jakub Lauko.

Bukac is a defenseman currently playing for the Niagara Ice Dogs. He has 2 goals and 4 assists in 22 games.

The Bruins drafted Bukac 204th overall in 2017.

Lauko is a name more fans will recognize, as he had an eye-opening camp back in September.

The speedy forward has been a better-than PPG guy for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, notching 12 goals and 13 assists in 24 games.

Lauko was drafted 77th overall this past June.

Best of luck to both of the kids!
