Prince Albert, SK – Nolan Allan and Team Canada defeated Russia 5-3 on Thursday night to win the gold medal at the 2021 IIHF U18 World Championships in Frisco, TX.

It is Canada’s first gold medal at the tournament since 2013, which featured Raiders alumnus Josh Morrissey on the Canadian blueline.

Allan got the game off to the physical start for Canada by dumping Russia captain Nikita Chibrikov into the Canadian bench with a big hit leess than two mintues into the contest.

Shane Wright (Kingston Frontenacs) had two goals for Canada, including the empty-net goal to seal the win. Connor Bedard (Regina Pats), Brennan Othmann (Flint Firebirds), and Logan Stankoven (Kamloops Blazers) also scored for Canada.

Allan played in all seven games for Caanada at the tournament, registering a goal and an assist with a plus-seven rating.
