CALGARY, Alta. – Canada’s National Junior Team captured the bronze medal at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship on Thursday, with a 4-0 win over Finland in Calgary, Alta.

Canada has now won medals in 14 consecutive IHF World Junior Championship, a tournament record. The next best streak belongs to Russia who won medals in eight consecutive events, from 1974-81.

Goals by Tanner Pearson (Kitchener, Ont./ Barrie, OHL), Mark Scheifele (Kitchener, Ont./ Barrie, OHL) and Quinton Howden (Oak Bank, Man./ Moose Jaw, WHL) gave Canada a 3-0 lead through two periods of play, while goaltender Mark Visentin turned away a Finland penalty shot in the second period. Howden added his second goal late in the game, while Visentin made 27 saves to secure the win and the shutout.

Sweden won the gold medal with a 1-0 overtime win over Russia in the final game at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship.
