We had to wait until early morning Swedish time to get a winner, but eventually we got our hero: Mika Zibanejad.
Djurgårdens IF:s forward converted an open chance in OT and secured Team Swedens’s first gold medal in The Junior World Championships since 1981.
58 shots on goals against 17, 1 goal against 0 and a well deserved victory looking at it from a Swedish perspective. Thanks everyone for the show!

Hockey lovers, a big night is ahead of us. The hockey fever has spread throughout the country and after six exciting games in Elitserien, we’ll wait for the final in The World Junior Championship in Canada, broadcasted Thursday night Swedish time.
While you wait, we recommend you to check out Elitserien Play where you’ll find highlights, interviews and much more. As usual!
Ahead of tonights game against local rivals MODO, Hockeyligan.se asked Timrå IK:s forward Simon Önerud to share his impressions of teammate Max Friberg that has taken the tournament in Canada with charm: Team Sweden’s best goal scorer has found the net nine times so far.
"It’s nice for him to be able to show the rest of the country that he’s a damn good goal scorer", Simon Önerud told us.
Are you surprised?
"No. I’ve seen him on practice every day and I’ve played a lot with him as well. The bounces haven’t been in favor of him so far, but ultimately things will turn around if you work hard for it. I’m not surprised, but him scoring nine goals was perhaps something I would not have predicted, however I don’t think he would have believed in that himself either!"
Hockeyligan.se wishes our National Team "Juniorkronorna" all the best in tonight’s final against Team Russia!

In this blog we will cover the most interesting action in and around Elitserien. We will also translate (parts of) interviews and other texts.
