Taking a look at five more former and current Leafs that played for their country at the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships, this article is the second part of a four-part series documenting some of the best to wear their country’s colours as well as the blue and white. 

Part two focuses on numbers 15 to 11 – including three current Leafs and one draft pick that never suited up for the big club. The WJHC is a place for kids to make names for themselves – guys like Peter Forsberg, Kari Lehtonen, and number 11 in this latest piece – James van Riemsdyk.
