- Welcome to Malmö The 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship will take place in Malmö. It will be the first IIHF tournament hosted in the third-largest Swedish city located in the southwest of the country.
- Reinhart ban clarified At a press conference at Ufa Arena prior to the medal games, the IIHF spelled out in detail the factors that led to a four-game suspension for Canadian defenceman Griffin Reinhart.
- Failure or not? The host team will play for bronze against Canada. Comparing with the last two U20 World Championships (gold and silver), the results are a step back. But could the Russians really have done better?
- Going for bronze Canada and Russia have played... well, never. For bronze that is. At the U20. Today will be different, but maybe not too much.
- Finns pound Slovaks Finland scored three first-period goals and never looked back en route to walloping Slovakia 11-4 in Friday’s seventh-place game at Ufa’s Sports Palace.
- Czechs claim 5th If players have trouble gearing up for the bronze-medal game, imagine how difficult it is to get mentally focused for a game to decide 5th and 6th places.
- It's the final countdown If familiarity breeds contempt, it should be a hard-fought gold medal game on Saturday between the U.S. and Sweden at the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World U20 Championship.
