2017 IIHF World Junior Championship | Montreal and Toronto, Canada

Montreal and Toronto, Canada | Dec. 26-Jan.5

The U.S. National Junior Team went undefeated (5-2-0-0) and came back from two two-goal deficits to top Canada, 5-4, in a shootout in the gold medal-game to win the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship in Montreal and Toronto, Canada.

Team USA played its preliminary-round games at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto against fellow Group A members Canada, Latvia, Russia, and Slovakia. They topped Switzerland, 3-2, in the quarterfinals before edging Russia, 4-3, behind a seven round shootout that saw goaltender Tyler Parsons turn aside four of Russia' seven shooters and Troy Terry score three-straight shootout goals. The tournament marked the first time any team defeated two teams twice en route to a gold medal finish.
