EDMONTON, Alta. – Devon Levi (Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Que./Northeastern University, HE) did it again, making 28 saves to backstop Canada’s National Junior Team into the gold medal game at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship with a 5-0 semifinal win over Russia on Monday night.
The road to gold, to back-to-back gold, officially opened for Canada on Saturday, and the team advanced with a 3-0 quarterfinal victory over the Czech Republic . Canada entered the contest having won Group A with four consecutive victories by a combined 33-4 score . Compared to those contests, this one was a lot closer.
It did not disappoint. Entering the game, Canada was earmarked for a win . After all, the team had only allowed four goals through six games and was coming off back-to-back shutouts. But when the final buzzer sounded it was the Americans, instead, with a 2-0 win .

The Czechs I know all look like Americans. They vary from dark hair and hazel/brown eyes- but the typical Czech I think is more nordic looking . I think this type definitely have prominent high cheekbones, and more tend to have longer pointed noses. And fuller lips with a wider mouth.
The number of dollar millionaires in the Czech Republic has increased to 28,140 , which is an increase of nearly 11 per cent on the previous year, according to figures released by the consultancy Capgemini on Monday.
