Yukon, Canada’s smallest territory, is home to no pro, junior, or college sports teams. Bryon Baltimore and Peter Sturgeon were the only NHL players from Yukon. Three Yukon cross-country skiers were sent to the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang (South Korea) – Dahria Betatty, Knute Johnsonsgaard and Emily Nishikawa. Graham Nishikawa, a cross-country skier, competed at the 2018 Paralympics. There are very few options for Yukon sports betting.
