Missed opportunity for Slovakia

JD Gaetan

This is a game that Slovakia would have circled on their World Junior calendar. We knew going into the tournament this game most likely would decide who will finish 3rd and 4th in Group A. Now that Slovakia and Switzerland have both played two games, both have a win and […]

Team Germany kept it close, but it simply wasn’t meant to be. Just as they had done against the Americans, Germany went toe-to-toe with the world’s best through the first half of the game.  Kelowna Rockets’ forward and Tampa Bay Lightning prospect, Nolan Foote, fired home a rebound to open […]
