In ice hockey, the Czech team won their opening game in the World Junior Championships in Montreal, Canada. They defeated the Finns, the current world champions 2:1. The winning goal came just over a minute before time with Michael Špaček finding the goal. The Czechs had taken the lead in the game through Daniel Krenželok before the Finns drew level. The Czechs have not won a medal in the world juniors since 2005 when they picked up the bronze medal. Last year they were in fifth place. The Czechs next match is against Switzerland.
