Lindbergh, Team Europe Bring Home Silver



VASTERAS - After a strong tournament in which Team Europe looked like a team to beat, goaltender Oskar Lindbergh and the rest of his teammates returned home with silver medals following a 4-2 loss to Team Canada in the Gold Medal Game of the World Junior Championship. After going 5-3 in round robin play, Team Europe avenged their loss to Team World with a 6-3 victory, setting up a showdown with Team Canada for the gold medal. However, Team Canada, responsible for the other two losses that Team Europe suffered during round robin play, proved that the third time was not the charm, claiming the gold medal with a 4-2 victory.


“It was disappointing to fall just short of gold,” remarked goaltender Oskar Lindbergh following the game. “But this team is very proud of what we achieved during the tournament. We gave it our all each game, showed we belonged here, and have real futures ahead of us. But you have to hand it to [Team] Canada, they were incredible. There’s a lot of real talent there, and they’re gonna be a real problem for the international hockey scene for years to come.”




The next step for Lindbergh is to join the Toronto Legion for training camp, with the 81st VHL season quickly approaching. He is currently slated to be the opening day starter for the Legion as he begins his rookie season.
