Plymouth & Ann Arbor, Michigan | April 16-26, 2020

The 2020 IIHF Under-18 Men's World Championship will take place April 16-26, 2020 in Plymouth and Ann Arbor, Michigan. The tournament will see Team USA skate in Group B alongside Russia, the Czech Republic, Finland and Germany.

The U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team went 6-0-1-0 (W-OTW-OTL-L) in the 2019 tournament in Ornskoldsvik and Umea, Sweden, and earned a bronze medal to extend its unprecedented medal streak in tournament play to 16 straight IIHF Under-18 Men’s World Championships.

The tournament saw the U.S. earn first in Group B during the preliminary round, winning all four of its preliminary contests and outscoring its opponents, 31-10. In the playoff round, the U.S. defeated Finland, 6-0, in the quarterfinals before meeting Russia in the semifinals. There, the U.S. trailed, 1-0, heading into the third period, before scoring back-to-back goals just 3:04 apart to take the lead. With 12:33 to play in regulation, Russia was able to score to tie the contest before topping the U.S. in the shootout. Tied at one after the first period of the bronze-medal game, Team USA scored four consecutive goals and defeated Canada, 5-1, to secure its 16th consecutive medal at the tournament.
