Spencer Knight made 34 saves, and the United States topped Yorkton’s Kaedan Korczak and Team Canada 2-0 to win the world junior hockey championship in Edmonton on Tuesday night.
The Canadians were undefeated at the 2021 tournament and aiming to repeat as gold-medal winners, but had to settle for silver after running into a strong American team.
The U-S won six straight games to capture its fifth under-20 title following a round-robin loss to Russia on opening day.
For the 19 year old Korczak, he dressed for all 7 of the Canadian and registered one point.
Next up for the Kelowna Rockets defenceman is to head off to Las Vegas to participate in main training camp with the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights
