EDMONTON, ALBERTA - It was a truly golden moment for five former Shattuck-St. Mary’s Sabres as they, along with their teammates, helped lead Team USA past Team Canada to capture the gold medal at the 2021 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship game held Tuesday night at Rogers Place.

Coming in as the underdog, Brendan Brisson ‘19John FarinacciDrew HellesonJackson LaCombe ‘19Cam York and the rest of Team USA knew they had ground to make up and they did that starting right away in the first period. Helleson picked up an assist on the first goal of the game as his teammate Alex Turcotte tipped in his shot from the point to get Team USA on the board. From there, stellar goaltending and a goal just thirty seconds into the second period was all Team USA needed to clinch their gold medal, marking the fifth time in the last six years that Team USA medaled in the World Junior Championship.

In total, the five former Sabres combined for 20 points in the tournament - 10 goals and 10 assists. Cam York was also named one of Team USA’s top three players of the tournament. 

“Congratulations to Team USA and the five former Sabres on their gold medal performance at the 2021 World Junior Championship,” said Shattuck-St. Mary’s Director of Boys Hockey, Ben Umhoefer. “We are so proud of the way they represented our country and program on one of hockey’s biggest stages.”
