The Last Day Of The World Junior Summer Showcase

from USA Hockey,

In the final day of competition here at the 2019 World Junior Summer Showcase fans, scouts and spectators alike will be treated to two of the biggest rivalries in hockey. At 1 p.m. ET, Sweden will take on Finland and be followed by a tilt featuring the United States and Canada. Both games will be broadcast live on NHL Network in the United States and TSN in Canada.

This is the first Showcase meeting between Sweden and Finland this year. At the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship last December, the two teams opened tournament play against one another in a 2-1 Swedish win off a pair of goals from Erik Brannstrom. Aarne Talvitie scored in the loss for Finland. The U.S. and Canada are meeting for the second time this Showcase.

original post was on 7/22/19

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Hockey announced today that NHL Network will televise live the final three days of games at the 2019 World Junior Summer Showcase.

The week-long event will include 11 international competitions featuring the best Under-20 players from four nations - the U.S., Canada, Finland and Sweden - auditioning for a spot to represent their country in the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship. Collectively, the four teams have skated in at least one of the last three IIHF World Junior Championship gold-medal games. In 2017, the U.S. defeated Canada in a thrilling 5-4 shootout victory before Canada topped Sweden, 3-1, a year later. This past January, Finland edged the U.S., 3-2, to win gold.

Preview Of The World Championship Semi-Final Games

from Adam Kimelman of NHL.com,

Canada will try to take the next step in its quest for a 27th title at the 2019 IIHF World Championship when it plays Czech Republic in the second semifinal at Ondrej Nepela Arena in Bratislava, Slovakia, on Saturday (1 p.m. ET; NHLN).

Russia faces Finland in the first semifinal game (9 a.m. ET; NHLN).

Canada advanced when forward Mark Stone (Vegas Golden Knights) scored his second goal of the game at 5:07 of overtime for a 3-2 win against Switzerland in the quarterfinals on Thursday. Switzerland had eliminated Canada in the semifinals of the 2018 World Championship.

Stone's 12 points (seven goals, five assists) are tied with forward Anthony Mantha (Detroit Red Wings) for Canada's lead. Mantha was suspended for the quarterfinals because of an illegal check to the head against the United States in Canada's final preliminary-round game, but will be available for the semifinals.

A championship for Canada would be its first since 2017 and would tie Russia/USSR for the most in tournament history.

Team Great Britain At The World Championship

from Brian Pinelli of the New York Times,

The N.H.L.’s best teams may be competing for a cup named after an Englishman — Lord Stanley, a governor general of Canada who has been dead for over a century — but the ties between Britain and the sport’s highest levels usually end there.

Now, however, Britain’s national men’s ice hockey team is competing at the I.I.H.F. world championship for the first time in 25 years....

“No one knows anything about U.K. hockey, and the first couple of days here people were laughing at us,” defenseman Ben O’Connor said. “We go out and lose, 3-1, to Germany, and they’re not laughing at us anymore.

“Just because you’re from England doesn’t mean you have to play football, or soccer,” he added. “We can play hockey too.”...

Against an American team captained by the three-time Stanley Cup champion Patrick Kane on May 15, Britain held on valiantly for 60 minutes. The score was tied, 1-1, nearly halfway through the game, before the United States pulled away for a 6-3 win.

“To play like we did and be in that game was special,” said O’Connor, who regularly skates for the Sheffield Steelers, one of the Elite league’s most popular teams. “You catch yourself thinking, ‘Patrick Kane is coming down on me.’ It’s surreal.”

Forward Colin Shields, 39, a member of the Belfast Giants of the Elite league, recently announced his retirement and is playing his final tournament for the national team.

“To line up against some of the players on Team U.S.A. was definitely a moment I’ll never forget and one of the greatest games I’ve been a part of in my career,” Shields said.
