Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

My most recent sports prognostication was mostly wrong, but in this case I am glad to be wrong, as Canada has won the 2012 IIHF World Women’s U18 Championship. We beat the United States 3–0 in the final. This is Canada’s second championship. The United States won silver. Sweden won bronze for the third time.

The final rankings are as follows:

  1. Canada
  2. United States
  3. Sweden
  4. Germany
  5. Finland
  6. Czech Republic
  7. Russia
  8. Switzerland – relegated to Division I for 2013.

In accordance with IIHF regulations for seeding, the likely groups for the next tournament are:

Pool A Pool B
Canada United States
Germany Sweden
Finland Czech Republic
Hungary Russia

 

The location of the next tournament will be announced later this year.
