Team USA. The tournament to forget.


Recommended Posts

Coming into the world junior championship, the united states were not really favorites but had an outside chance of making a run. Canada and Asia had a strong showing last tournament and came with high expectations this seasons as well, and they did not disappoint. The USA didn’t do so hot in the round robin games, putting up a subpar record of 3-5, only besting team worlds 2-5-1. A poultry 3-5 should never be good enough to make the playoffs in any sport but everyone makes it here in the world juniors. So a bottom of the table matchup between team usa and team world was born in the first round of the playoffs. After a disappointing round robin, things couldn’t get much worse, right? Well they did. Team USA took a dump and lost 3-1 to the only team that did worse than them in round robin. There is always next tourney for team USA.
