The Swiss dropped all three games, including a 9-2 loss to Canada on Wednesday to close out the opening round. The loss sends Switzerland into the seventh place game against Slovakia. Read more»

Team Canada entered the 2015 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament as a strong contender for a gold medal, and they have done little to make anyone think otherwise after three games.

After struggling for the first two games at the 2015 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, Team USA finally broke out of their offensive funk in the third game, posting a 7-3 win over Slovakia on Wednesday. The win will place the U.S. in the game that decides fifth place at this tournament, probably not what the team was hoping for heading into the event. Read more»
