Team Canada Wins Gold at World Juniors


Brent Sutter is now 12-0 as coach of Team Canada

Team Canada’s Juniors blanked the Russians 5-0 to win the Gold Medal at the 2006 World Junior Hockey Championships in Vancouver today. The Canadians were perfect in the tournament winning all 7 games they played. The win was satisfying for many players who were compared to last year’s Greatest Junior Team of All Time


Team Canada started the tournament slowly with a few shaky wins, but under the superb coaching of Brent Sutter they kept their composure, tightened their defence, and seemed to gel as a team. Canada started to play their physical game more, and capitalized on their scoring opportunities. They allowed only 6 goals in 6 games, while scoring 16 of thier own goals to win the cup. Team Canada raised the cup and were donned with Gold Medals for the 2nd year in a row.

I must admit that it’s a great prelude to the Olympics.
