What wild timing to say the least. In a time that other schools (cough cough Lethbridge) are cutting sports teams, LIU announced that they would be adding a men’s D1 team for the 2020/21 season. Since Illinois continues to waste time and not make the jump, they let a team […]
The NHL draft was scheduled to take place in June.
During a long quarantine and shut down, this is the humor we all need. During a very serious Coronavirus press conference at city hall by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, couple random dudes showed up, presumably to pay some parking ticket or whatever (pure speculation), and joined the Mayor’s entourage. Here’s […]
2020 is a mess.
Every year the NHL provides us with a great day of television as the trade deadline approaches. The familiar face of the boys from TSN tell us about the goings on in the NHL and who’s on the move. This year will most likely be no different as there are […]
Who woulda thunk? Another WJC 2020 relegation-round drubbing. Team Germany asserted its superiority over Team Kazakhstan at Ostravar Arena on Sunday, netting 6 goals on 40 shots and shutting-out the Group A upstarts 6-0 to buy a ticket to the 2021 World Juniors in Alberta. German forward Dominik Bokk scored […]
Sweden avoided a devastating loss to Team Finland to secure a bronze medal at the 2020 World Junior Championship. Expectations were set high after yet another undefeated preliminary round by the Swedes. Although they didn’t get an opportunity to win their first gold medal since 2012, the fact that they […]
Russia @ Canada It comes down to this, one game for all the marbles. Canada and Russia have been the best rivalry in the past decade in my opinion. Since the tournament changed to this head to head format, Canada and Russia have played each other 8 times in the […]
There’s rebounding from a loss, and then there’s winning 6-0 to book your ticket to Edmonton with the world’s best, and that’s exactly what Team Germany did on Sunday morning in Ostrava. Germany took an early 1-0 lead after 20 minutes with Dominik Bokk’s fifth goal of the tournament. Perhaps […]
Sweden lost a heartbreaking semi-final matchup against Team Russia and now are set to fight for a Bronze Medal against their most bitter rivals as they face-off against Finland with the goal of getting back on the podium after being held medal-less in 2019. Team Finland is coming off a […]
Here’s a wild guess – Germany’s pregame market to win Relegation Game 3 on Sunday won’t be 1-to-14 in London. Not after what happened on Saturday in Ostrava. Kazakhstan roared back from the brink of relegation at the 2020 World Juniors, whipping Germany 4-1 in a Game 2 victory that […]
Victor Soderstrom wasn’t supposed to be on this Team Sweden roster at the 2020 World Juniors Championship. Anyone you would have asked a month ago would have said that’d he’d be the odd man out when the Chicago Blackhawks eventually announce that prospect Adam Boqvist is being loaned to Team […]
Early and often, that was the key to Canada’s win.
After cruising their way to the Semi-Finals with an undefeated record, Team Sweden was handed their first loss of the tournament by Team Russia on Saturday, in what was undoubtedly the most action-packed game of the tournament. The team will not be given a chance to win their first gold […]
Nothing good comes easy, just ask Team Germany whose 4-1 loss to Kazakhstan means a third and final game to decide who stays, and who goes. After a 4-0 victory over Kazakhstan on Thursday, the Germans had a significant advantage heading into today’s game against their opponents. Now, it’s for […]
Sweden rolled over the Czech Republic with a score of 5-0 as they eliminated the host nation and moved on to the semi-finals with ease. The Swedes are now 5-0-0-0 at the 2020 World Juniors but are about to take on their toughest matchup yet. Team Russia has been a […]
Something’s got to give for the US going forward. Dominating the tournament in the earlier parts of the decade and a gold against Canada in the shootout in 2017. The Americans fell to the Finns in a tight 1-0 game. Did it come down to a hot goalie? Absolutely. But […]
What a difference a week makes. 7 days ago, Team Kazakhstan was locked in a 1-1 draw with Slovakia late in the 3rd period at Werk Arena, seemingly poised to win a round-robin game and potentially earn a quarterfinal bid at the World Juniors. Kazakhstan would go on to lose […]
Hugo Alnefelt was the backbone of a 5-0 Team Sweden victory over the Czech Republic that has sent the team to a semi-final matchup against the Russians. We already knew the formula for Team Sweden to have success in the elimination rounds of the World Juniors. They needed to be […]
