The USA U19 team will have to settle for Silver in the 2017 World Junior A Challenge six-team tournament, as the Canada West U19 scored 5 goals on just 19 shots to win the tourney’s Gold Medal. Canada West netminder Zach Rose (undrafted) stopped 35 of 36 shots fired by the Americans in a spectacular effort. The Canadians got goals from 5 different players including the game opening shorthanded marker from future Cole Guttman University of Denver teammate Brendan Budy (2018 draft eligible, Denver commit). After Angus Crookshank (2018 draft eligible, New Hampshire commit) and Corey Andonovski (undrafted, Princeton commit) gave the Canada West team a 3-0 advantage, the Americans opted for goaltending change, bringing in Ryan Bischel (undrafted, Clarkson commit) for Jake Kucharski (2018 draft eligible, Providence commit), who allowed 3 goals on just 12 shots. USA would respond to the change in net, as Jack Drury (2018 draft eligible, Harvard commit), the son and nephew of ex-NHL’ers Ted and Chris Drury, would draw the Americans within two with a power play goal. It would be the Americans’ only goal, as Rose shut the door for the remainder of the game. Ross Armour (undrafted, Bemidji State commit) and sixteen year old Dylan Holloway (2020 draft eligible, Wisconsin commit) provided insurance markers for the Canadians during the 3rd period, as Bishel allowed 2 goals on 7 shots.

Nick Perbix finished the tournament pointless in 5 games for USA, and Cole Guttman scored one goal in 4 games.

In Friday's consolation game action, the Czech Republic U19 team claimed Bronze in a 4-2 victory over the Russia U18 squad. The Canada East U19 team defeated the Swiss U18 club 3-2 in OT to finish 5th in the tourney.

The USA U19 squad punched their ticket to Thursday’s semi-finals with the 3-1 victory over the Swiss U18 squad. USA got first period tallies from Tyler Madden (2018 draft eligible, Northeastern commit) and Curtis Hall (2018 draft eligible, Yale commit), with Hall’s score coming on the power play 18 seconds before the end of the frame. The USA defense choked the Swiss, with Ryan Bischel (undrafted, Clarkson commit) facing just 15 shots en route to his first win of the tournament.

The Swiss halved the two-goal lead of the Americans early in the 2nd period on a Jeremi Gerber (2018 draft eligible) score, but Paul Cotter (2018 draft eligible, Western Michigan commit) restored the two-goal cushion in the 3rd. Blueliner Graham Lillibridge (undrafted, Yale commit) notched a pair of assists for the Americans.

The USA U19 kicked off Group A preliminary play against the Czech Republic U19 team with Nick Perbix playing the 2nd defensive pair with his future St. Cloud fellow blueliner Brendan Bushy. Bushy is the current Dubuque Fighting Saint teammate of Cole Guttman, who sat out of the first preliminary game as a scratch. The Czech Republic opened their tournament Sunday with a 5-2 win against the Canada West U19 squad, and opened the scoring of this game at 9:55 of the 1st period with a shorthanded goal by Blainville-Boisbriand pivot Jan Hladonik (undrafted). Fifteen seconds later, Sam Hentges, another St. Cloud commit, would even the score with a power play marker for the Americans.

With forty seconds remaining in the 2nd period, the lethal Czech penalty kill would strike again as Ondrej Chrtek (undrafted) scored shorthanded to give the Czechs a 2-1 lead, but USA would once again knot the game midway through the 3rd with a Jack Dugan (VGK, 2017 5th round pick, Providence commit) tally. About five minutes later Chrtek scored his 2nd of the contest and would prove to be the game-winner, although the Czechs would add an empty netter from Matyas Zelingr (undrafted) with a minute remaining.

In Group B action, the Russia U18 team defeated Canada East U19 on Sunday 5-1, and then Canada East U19 defeated the Swiss U18 squad on Monday 4-3. On Tuesday, USA will square off against Canada West U19 to conclude their preliminary play, and Russia U18 with match up against the Swiss U18. The quarterfinals are scheduled for Wednesday, the semifinals on Thursday, the consolations games will be played Friday, and the tournament championship game on Saturday.
