U20 World Junior

Every year since 1977 the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) has organized and held the U20 World Junior Championships (WJC).  The tournament has been played in various countries throughout the world and is usually held near the end of December through the beginning of January.  This tournament brings together some of the best young (under 20 year old) hockey players from around the world.  Many of these players end up playing and being stars in the NHL.  For more information on the IIHF and this tournament check out their web site.

Below is a breakdown of the Gopher players that have participated in the WJC as player, coach and or assistant coach.

Currently the United States has won 4 Gold, 1 Silver and 5 Bronze medals in the championship.
