So far during the World Ice Hockey championship results, Canada has played an exceptional game crushing Austria 10 – 1 in the last group game on Tuesday. This means that Canada will now face Belarus on Thursday in the quarter-finals in Prague.
Spezza said, “It is nice to finish first in the group but it really doesn’t mean much. We’re here to win the gold medal and we have to start with winning our next game.”
Coming in second at this stage of the tournament is the USA, who fought hard and won Group B. They will play Switzerland in Ostrava on Thursday. Defending champions, Russia will take on Sweden in Ostrava and Finland will face the hosts Czech Republic in Prague.

The 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Medals
Who best to design the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Medals but a Czech! Architect and designer Oldřich Sládek has designed this year’s IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship medals and they look totally amazing. Preciosa, one of the largest producers and exporters of Bohemian crystal will be producing them. With hockey pucks made in the Czech Republic the idea of making the medals in the same shape came as no surprise, but who knew they would look this good? The brief specifically requested that designs show national characteristics, therefore a polished Czech crystal stone will shine within the Czech flag on each gold, silver and bronze medals. The stone comes from a unique material known as Genuine Czech Crystal (R), which is made by Preciosa and can be sharpened into a desired shape. The crystal is well-known for its high internal cleanliness and good optical attributes. As if that wasn’t outstanding enough, the IIHF logo will be brushed into the centre of the stone plus the words, “2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship” written on the perimeter of each medal.
Prague is the capital city of the Czech Republic and right in the heart of Europe. It’s been known to be affectionately called, “golden Prague”, “hundred-spired Prague” or the “Mother of Cities”. Considered as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, it has a rich historical city centre, with Prague Castle, the largest castle complex in the world. With more than 7 million tourists visiting, Prague has more than enough on offer, such as historical monuments, modern architecture, world renowned cuisine, not to mention the thrill and excitement of the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship!
