It's not a three peat for Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge.
The United States had little trouble defeating Canada West 7-1 in the championship game.
The Americans got off to a quick start by jumping out to a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes.
They followed up the 3 goal first period, with four more goals in the 2nd period. Most of the damage was done by the U.S. on the power play scoring 4 times. Balance was another key to the American success as they got all 7 goals from 7 different players.
Rylan Schwartz scored the only goal for Canada West.
This marks the first time a team other than Canada West has won the gold medal at the World Junior A challenge.
