Congrats to the US on a great tournament. It would have been great to see a 7 game series, or even a three game series between Canada and the US (as well as Russia vs. Canada and Russia vs. US).

Congrats to the USA!!! They were indeed the best team there.

I am also proud that all three goals were scored by Cats prospects. Woot future FTW!

Despite the fact Canada didn't medal, I am actually happy to see other countries winning it. Better for the sport, and better for the tournament IMO.

On the strength of two Rocco Grimaldi goals, the United States became World Junior champions by defeating Sweden 3-1 at Ufa Arena on Saturday.
Grimaldi, who had been held goalless till the final, picked the perfect time to break out with his pair in the second period. Vince Trocheck scored into an empty net in the final minute.

"I was just happy [my goals] went in," said Grimaldi. "Basically, I just threw it on the net [first one] and the second one just hit me in the chest and went in. That's fine."

Filip Sandberg scored for Sweden, whose reign as World Champion has ended after one year.

"Right now, it feels terrible," said Swedish captain Filip Forsberg. "Hopefully it might feel better in a couple of weeks."

Just as in the 2011 IIHF World U18 Championship final, American goalie John Gibson – the tournament MVP, Best Goaltender, and all-star goalie – outduelled his Swedish counterpart Niklas Lundström. Shots on goal favoured the U.S. 34-27.

"We wouldn’t have this if it wasn’t for Gibby," said Jacob Trouba, who was named Best Defenceman and took an all-star berth. "We rode him all tournament, and he played phenomenal the whole tournament."

"It feels great. I worry about the team first and winning a gold medal," said Gibson. "I’ll remember that more than MVP."

It was a smart, controlled, tactical game in front of 6,001 spectators -- a worthy conclusion to an exciting tournament.

It is just the third World Junior title for the U.S. of all time. The Americans previously defeated Canada in the final in Helsinki (2004) and Saskatoon (2010).

USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA!! :francis:


For further elaboration, so I don't have to start a new thread:

U.S. goalie John Gibson received the triple honour of being named tournament MVP, Directorate Best Goalie, and goalie for the media all-star team.

Gibson becomes the first goalie since Steve Mason (CAN) in 2008 to be named MVP.

Other players named to the Directorate include Jacob Trouba (USA) as Best Defenceman and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (CAN) as Best Forward.

The media all-star team consists of Gibson in goal as well as defencemen Trouba and Jake McCabe (USA). The forwards are Nugent-Hopkins, Filip Forsberg (SWE), and John Gaudreau (USA).
