Team USA will face Finland in the gold medal game at the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship after defeating Canada, 7-2, in their semifinal showdown at the Brassard Arena in Zug, Switzerland. Finland advanced after defeating host Switzerland, 5-4, in an overtime thriller.
A balanced and explosive offensive attack has characterized this USA U18 squad. While the team does have its scoring stars, the roster as a whole has produced 120 points in six tournament games. The team haven’t been slouches on defense, either, as they’ve given up just 12 goals in this tournament.
One of the unsung contributors for Team USA has been forward Jordan Greenway. The 6’5″, 223-pound Greenway has scored a goal and assisted on six more for seven points at this U18. Greenway competed for the U.S. NTDP squad the past two seasons, and will be attending Boston University starting in the fall.
Greenway is eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft. He is ranked 47th in NHL Central Scouting’s final draft rankings after having been ranked 22nd in their midterm list.
Hockey’s Future spoke with Greenway following the USA’s win over Canada, a conversation captured in this HF video.
