Canada vs. Sweden - 2010 World Junior Hockey Championships - Buffalo

Canada Canada – 5 FINAL (SO) Sweden Sweden – 6
WJHC 2011 Game 4
Canada were silver medal winners in 2010
Sweden were bronze medal winners in 2010
Date: Dec 31 @ 2:00 PM MST
TV: TSN


This game is huge. In the pre-competition game between these two teams, Canada did win by a score of 4-1. However it should be noted that Sweden spent a crazy amount of time in the box (some of the penalties were outrageous). They had 12 penalties to our 5, but still managed to outshoot us 30-25. Expect a tough and much closer game. Both of these teams are undefeated in the preliminary round. The winner of this game will earn a bye into the Semi-final round.

Jaden Schwartz (fractured ankle – likely done for the tournament) and Zack Kassian (suspended for previous game and this game) will be absent from this game. The Canadians had a line up that looked like Swiss cheese when they faced the Norwegians. With any hope, all but these Continue reading 'WJHC 2011 GDT – Canada 5, Sweden 6 (SO) – Game 4 – 2010-12-31 @ 2:00PM MST – TSN'»

Click here for Oilers vs. Sharks GDT

OK, so this time officially, Edmonton Oilers prospect Olivier Roy is in goal. Hopefully he can impress tonight. It’s hard to out class a guy who got a shutout, but doing well against the Swiss and doing well against the Swedes are two different animals (sorry Switzerland… you guys can teach a thing or two about defense but have some learning to do offensively).

Curtis Hamilton played last night but to be honest, I didn’t hear his name much (although granted, I wasn’t watching this one too closely – but he is playing on the 4th line and as the 13th forward). I did hear him on the PK though, and he did get in almost alone on goal once, but I believe his linemates were on a change, so there wasn’t much to that chance.

FYI, we’re running two GDT’s tonight. The Oilers also play, but Continue reading 'WJHC 2011 GDT – Canada 4, Sweden 1 – Pre-Comp 2 – 2010-12-21 @ 5:30PM MST – TSN'»

Canada defeats Swiss, USA defeats Sweden setting up Canada vs. USA final in WJHC

Oldie but a goodie.

Oldie but a goodie.

In semifinal action, Canada defeated Switzerland by a score of 6-1 today while USA beat the Swedes 5-2. For Oilers prospects, Jordan Eberle had one goal in the Canada game, while Anton Lander was the lone scorer for Sweden with both goals.

This sets up an epic battle Tuesday between the USA and Canada. The last time the two faced in the gold medal was in 2004 in Helsinki. The Americans won gold by a score of 4 to 3. Needless to say, this will be Canada’s toughest battle of the tournament. The two teams have already faced each other. The Canadians managed to come back from a 4-2 lead and win it 5-4 in the shootout in part to some more heroics by Jordan Eberle. Hopefully we can pay them dirty Yankees back for the 2004 loss and win this one. Sixpeat!

The Swedes will face the Swiss Tuesday afternoon at 2:00PM MST for the Bronze medal.

Here are the current point totals for Oilers prospects:
