Departure Day - December 9

After last night's thrilling 5-4 victory over host Canada, the U.S. finally says goodbye to London, Ontario.

U.S. CLAIMS FIFTH-STRAIGHT TITLE
Yesterday, Jack Wallace (Franklin Lakes, N.J.)  scored twice, including the championship-clinching goal with 7:29 to play in regulation, to lead the 2018-19 U.S. National Sled Hockey Team to a 5-4 victory over Canada in the championship game of the 2018 Para Hockey Cup.

SEVEN IN TWELVE
With the win, the U.S. finishes the 2018 Para Hockey Cup with a perfect 5-0-0-0 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record and its fifth-straight title in the event. In the tournament's 12-year history, the U.S. has claimed a tournament-best seven titles (2009, 2012, 2015, 2016 (Jan.), 2016 (Dec.), 2017 and 2018) along with two second-place finishes (2011 (Nov.) and 2013) and three third-place efforts (2007, 2008 and 2011 (Apr.)).

NEXT COMPETITION
The U.S. will return to international action in March when it meets Canada for a two-game series in Indian Trail, North Carolina. Prior to the event, a number of the U.S. players will take part in the 2018-19 USA Hockey Sled Classic, presented by the NHL. Hosted by the Chicago Blackhawks in Chicago, the ninth edition of the event will take place Feb. 7-10, 2019, at MB Ice Arena, the practice facility and community rink of the Blackhawks.
