It’s a silver medal for Moose Jaw Warriors head coach Tim Hunter and Team Canada at the 2017 World Junior Hockey Championship.

Troy Terry scored the only goal in the shootout to lift the United States to a 5-4 win over Canada on Thursday night to give them their fourth ever gold medal at the World Juniors.

Canada has now lost three of their last four meetings with the Americans in gold medal games at the tournament.

The game featured momentum shifts for both teams throughout the contest.

Canada opened up a 2-0 lead in the first period with goals from defencemen Thomas Chabot – the tournament MVP – and Jeremy Lauzon from the QMJHL’s Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.

That lead evaporated in the second period as the United States received goals from Charlie McAvoy and Kieffer Bellows in the opening nine minutes of the frame to tie the game.

The game went into the third period deadlocked, but Canada was able to change that just 1:52 into the final frame when Chicoutimi forward Nicolas Roy snapped in a power play goal.

Mathieu Joseph of the Saint John Sea Dogs put Canada in front by two just over two minutes later, but that lead wouldn’t hold again.

Bellows scored his second of the game just 39 seconds after Joseph’s goal and then Colin White tied the game back up about three minutes later.

Neither team could find the go-ahead goal over the final 13 minutes of regulation or during a back-and-forth overtime that featured a combined 24 shots for both teams.

The game went to the shootout and Terry was the only player to solve either goal with all five Canadian shooters being stoned by American goalie Tyler Parsons of the London Knights, who made 46 saves in regulation and overtime.

Chabot, a Saint John Sea Dog, played over 44 minutes in the game and finished with a goal and two points to lead the way for Canada, while Joseph also had a goal and two points.

Everett Silvertips goalie Carter Hart turned away 31 shots and 4-of-5 shooters in the shootout loss.

Adam Fox picked up three assists for the U.S. in the win.

Canada and the United States will be in the same pool next year at the World Juniors in Buffalo, New York and they will meet at the Buffalo Bills’ Ralph Wilson Stadium on New Year’s Eve.

Russia won the bronze medal with a 2-1 overtime win against Sweden on Thursday.
