Despite the disappointing semi-final loss to the Czech Republic at the 2014 IIHF U18 World Championship, Canada has turned in a solid effort at this year's tournament. They still have a shot at taking home the bronze medal, but that is small comfort for a country that is used to at least competing for the gold medal at these tournaments.
Team Canada's drive for a second consecutive gold medal at the IIHF U18 World Championship came to an end in their semi-final match against the Czech Republic. Although Canada overcame a 3-0 deficit to tie the game in the third period, the Czechs pulled out the 4-3 win in overtime on a goal by David Kase.
The preliminary round of the 2014 IIHF U18 World Championship is over and the playoff match-ups are set. Despite the odd surprise performances to start off the tournament, the teams have finished off group play in a manner conducive with most expectations coming in. Take a look at who’s up against whom in the playoffs and who you should expect to move on to the next round.
