PLZEN, CZECH REPUBLIC – Canada captures a silver medal at the 2005 IIHF World Under-18 Hockey Championship after a 5-1 loss to the USA in the gold medal game today in Plzen, Czech Republic.

Canada trailed throughout the game as Team USA's Phillip Kessel led the way with 2 goals and 2 assists to help the Americans repeat as Under-18 World Champions.

Canada's lone goal came in the first period as Devin Setoguchi (Taber, AB) set up Ryan O'Marra (Mississauga, ON) on the doorstep for a first period power play goal. American goalie Jeff Frazee made 48 saves on the 49 shots Canada threw at him, and was named the USA player of the game.

Canada’s top three players as chosen by the team were forwards Dan Bertram (Calgary, AB), Tomas Pyatt (Thunder Bay, ON), and defenseman Kristopher Letang (Montreal, QC). Letang was also picked to the Championship All-Star Team as selected by the media.
