Video: 2012 World Junior Championship – Zemgus Girgensons, Latvia

By Ken McKenna

Although Latvia’s entry at the 2012 World Junior Championship has played hard throughout most of the tournament, they’ve fallen short in the wins department.  Latvia has dropped all four of their preliminary games and will now play to remain in the top bracket for next year’s WJC.

Latvian forward Zemgus Girgensons is considered a top prospect for the 2012 NHL Draft, but the energetic Girgensons was held in check over the course of the four games.  he spoke to the media following Latvia’s 5-3 loss to Switzerland.
