Sweden wins the bronze medal game 3-1

Sweden wins the bronze medal game 3-1, beating the Czechs for their 20th medal at the World Juniors.

Wild first rounder Jesper Wallstedt made 27 of 28 saves, capping off a stellar tournament in which he stopped 125 of the 133 shots he faced for a .940 save percentage. I expect he’ll be named the tournament directorate’s top goaltender and a member of the media all-star team.

Which line will step up in the gold medal game?

Each of Canada and Finland have had one line emerge as their dominant one. For Canada it’s the trio of Kent Johnson, Logan Stankoven and Tyson Foerster. For Finland it’s Aatu Raty centering Roni Hirvonen and Joakim Kemell. Which one of them will step up in the gold medal game? The difference between the two clubs is arguably the MVP of the tournament Mason McTavish for Canada is on a different line, making match ups tough for Finland.

Goaltending will be a big variable tonight

Goaltending will be a big variable tonight. Finland’s starter all tournament was Ottawa draft pick Leevi Merilainen who struggled in the tournament and was replaced by the undrafted Juha Jatkola who shutout Sweden in the semifinal. Will Jatkola be able to stop Canada’s elite offense? Is he for sure the starter? Finland’s decision to cut Penguins pick Joel Blomqvist, who struggled with Finland’s U20 team this past season but put up a ridiculous .940 SV% in Liiga this season, looms large.

Canada vs. Finland, by the numbers

Canada (18 golds, 10 silvers) and Finland (five golds, four silvers) have played in a collective 37 gold medal games at the World Juniors, and yet today will be their very first time meeting in the final.

The Finns are in the middle of the country’s best run of success at the tournament, having won three of the last eight gold medals (equal to Canada). One of them will move to four-in-nine today.

Senators first-round pick Ridly Greig ruled out of Team Canada’s lineup

Senators first-round pick Ridly Greig has been ruled out of Team Canada’s lineup for the gold medal game due to injury. Greig had been an integral part of Canada’s third line and one of their best players before he got hurt in the first period of their quarterfinal matchup with Switzerland.

Ducks first-round pick Nathan Gaucher, who was Canada’s 13th forward before the injury, has played well in an elevated role in Greig’s absence.
