Terry scores shootout winner. Parsons makes 46 saves + 5 in shootout. USA wins gold 5-4
Parsons was unbelievable in OT and the S/O, amazing performance.
There's our boy!
You hear that? Medals coming back to Storrs, CT on NHL Network. Go USA!
It was beautiful!

Eleven skaters and two coaches from #HockeyEast are bringing home #WJC gold! Congrats @BCHockey @TerrierHockey@UConnMHOC @FriarsHockey!
Do you think he'll get the trophy for a day or two like the Stanley cup? Would be sweet to see that thing
I hope so.....maybe at a home game later this season....would be sweet to get a picture with it.
Tage played great all tournament, shout out to Parsons though who locked in when needed! MVP!
Team USA Wins Gold at World Juniors
5 pts for tage right 1 /4 ???
I believe so, he was effective the last 2 games even though he didn't post any points. I was 2nd thinking starting Parsons instead of Woll but boy was I wrong, Parsons stood tall.
UConn should recognize him and Huska pregame vs. Yale.
He had an assist tonight!
Okay didn't realize and must've missed it. He was great all tourney though, starting from game 1! I bet if he stays at UConn 1 more year (which I think he will), he will be a captain next year on team USA, possibly considering who is back.
Not C but alternate definitely.
No worries....it happened fast and I don't remember them mentioning it. I only saw it because of the tweet! You can see it pretty well on the video, now that you know what to watch for.
It looked like they were trying to set him for another 1 timer chance on that play (like the semi finals) to make it 2-2 but Bellows made a great tip. Fox and Cecconi were studs all tourney but yea it did happen fast and through the excitement I missed it, good catch Bomber. Let's beat Yale! Tage should be flying high, it'll be interesting to see if Cav inserts him into the lineup. Huska had an extra day or 2 to relax so he should be ready but I bet Nichols gets the start since he is appearing to heat up a little.
I really hope to see him play. One of the announcers said "most of these guys will be playing for their college teams this weekend." I hope he's right. We need Tage on the ice. He's young, he can handle the grind. I agree on Nichols...played well out west.
Next year's WJC hockey tournament is in Buffalo, if I read it right. Will Thompson be too old for that team, or is there another level he moves up to??
Good question....if I read the rule below correctly, then the answer would be no. He was born on 10-30-97. Am I reading this correctly?
the player has his 20th birthday in the year of the tournament's ending (i.e. born in 1994 for 2014 tournament), and at latest, the fifth year after the tournament's ending (i.e. born in 1999 for 2014 tournament);
We'll have to wait for the experts to chime in (Huskymedic, FDNY)!! I have no idea how to interpret that.
He's not eligible next year...
Thanks.....that's what I thought.
Kids like Tage that go to college as a 18 yr old freshman are only eligible to play in the WJC Tournament as a freshman and sophomore.
