Hockeyrecruits4u player Colin White scored the game-winning goal in overtime to help the U.S. Men’s National Under-18 Team knock off Finland, 2-1, in the gold-medal game of the 2015 International Ice Hockey Federation Under-18 Men’s World Championship.
The victory marks the ninth all-time gold medal for the United States at the IIHF Under-18 Men’s World Championship and sixth in the last seven years.
White’s game-winner came 12:44 into the extra session on a one-timer from the right of the Finnish net. The play started when Charles McAvoy fed Jeremy Bracco just inside the offensive blue line. Bracco pulled up, moved to the middle and eventually threaded a pass through traffic to White on the backdoor for a game-winning tally.
