Canada wins gold at IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship
Friday, January 6, 2006
Canada was undefeated this year posting a 6 wins and 0 losses record. Going into the competition the United States and Russia were favored for the gold and silver, but a disappointing tie with Switzerland and a loss to Canada during the round-robin knocked the U.S. team from the running
The back-to-back wins are the first since the 1996-1997 wins for team Canada.
Russia won the silver, and Finland won the bronze in an even more surprising and hard fought game against the U.S.
