World Jr Hockey Championship
Hi, this is Fred Wallace from the 52nd annual Grey Bruce Farmers Week in Elmwood with " Off the Wire ".
The World Junior Hockey Championship Tournament continues today with 3 games.
At noon, the second game in the best of 3 Relegation Round between Belarus & Denmark will be staged.
Attack forward Maksim Sushko is the captain of Team Belarus who lost the opening game 5-4.
For Sushko, he's been a key performer for his country, accumulating 2 assists and playing almost 27 minutes in the opening game
Meanwhile later today, the 2 semifinal games will be conducted at the Key Bank Centre.
This afternoon, the United States will meet Sweden.
The Swedes will be playing for a medal for the 12th straight year.
For the Americans. this is cagey scheduling, in that they, like everybody, had yesterday off, but IF they're successful they'll have a few more hours rest than their opponent SHOULD they get to the Gold Medal game.
And at 8 pm this evening, Jonah Gadjovich & Team Canada goes against the Czech Republic.
Canada is the favorite after slamming Switzerland 8-2 and already manhandling the Czechs......but the Czechs were also the underdogs against Finland and the Finns are out thanks to the Czechs.
