Tanner Pearson opened the scoring at 9:08 of the first period, when he redirected a great pass from Barrie Colts teammate, Scheifele on the power play.

Jets prospect Ivan Telegin missed the semi-final game against Russia as he suffered an injury in the quarter-final game against the Czech Republic when his hand was hit by a puck. He was able to play in the gold medal game however, he did not convert any points for Russia.
