MONTREAL -- The U.S. rallied from a pair of two-goal deficits and Troy Terry (Highlands Ranch, Colo./University of Denver), for the second straight night, scored the game-winner in the shootout, as the U.S. National Junior Team beat Canada, 5-4, to win the gold medal at the 2017 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship.
Goaltender Tyler Parsons (Chesterfield, Mich.) made 46 saves and stopped all five Canadian shots in the shootout.
"What a terrific game between two fantastic hockey countries," said Bob Motzko, head coach of Team USA. "When we got together in Michigan for our camp this summer, there was something special with these guys. This team had great camaraderie, tremendous heart and always battled. This is a special group who will forever walk together."
“I’ve been very fortunate to play this long, been a part of a lot of good organizations, played with a lot of great players, so, it means a lot to me.” ~ Paul Martin on playing his 800th NHL game, December 2, 2016.
