2010 World Junior Championship

U.S. junior team has 2005 blueprint as a guide

Wednesday, 12.22.2010 / 10:36 AM / 2010 World Junior Championship

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

In January 2004, a plane carried jubilant members of the United States World Junior Championship team home from Finland with something no U.S. team before it had ever earned -- a gold medal.

Featuring current NHL stars Zach Parise, David Booth, Drew Stafford and Matt Carle, the U.S. had beaten Canada 4-3 in the gold-medal game.

A similar scenario played out this past January, when the U.S. beat Canada by one goal in the gold-medal game, and the 2010 team -- one that features current NHL players John Carlson, Cam Fowler and Derek Stepan -- flew back from Saskatoon wearing well-earned gold.

With seven members of the 2004 team returning for the 2005 World Juniors, and the tournament being on home soil in Grand Forks, N.D., and Thief River Falls, Minn., the U.S. was expected to thrive, and maybe even repeat as champions.
