Dante Fabbro, Tyson Jost and Team Canada West captured gold at the 2015 World Junior ‘A’ Challenge this afternoon in Cobourg, Ontario. Canada West edged Russia 2-1 in the Gold Medal game and Jost scored the game-winner late in the third period; Fabbro assisted on the winner.
Jost led the tournament in scoring with three goals and nine points in four games. Fabbro chipped in with three assists from the blue-line. This is the second gold medal this season for the two, as they won gold with the Canadian Under-18 team at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup in the Czech Republic in August.
This is Canada West’s first gold medal since 2011, when they won the event in Langley, BC.
