GREAT AGAIN: Team USA wins gold over rival Canada at World Junior Championships in dramatic shootout
Anaheim Ducks prospect Troy Terry is king of the shootout and the American Under-20 hockey team is the world champion.
Terry scored the only goal in a five-round shootout to give Team USA a 5-4 win against Canada at the World Junior Championships in Montreal.
“He’s just one of those game-saving kind of guys,” U.S. goalie Tyler Parsons told USA TODAY Sports. “For him to get another shootout goal is unbelievable. It’s something he won’t ever forget, and every guy on this team won’t forget.”
The day before Terry was 3-for-3 in the shootout to give Team USA a dramatic 4-3 win against Russia in the semifinals. Teammates have been jokingly comparing Terry to Washington Capitals forward T.J. Oshie, who became a shootout legend at the 2014 Olympics when he went 4-for-6 in a shootout to beat the Russians. – READ MORE
