The young Swiss ice hockey team got off to an excellent start at the U-20 World Championships in Canada with a 3-2 victory after extra time.
12/26/2022 at 7:54 PM26.12.2022, 20:00
Just 41 seconds into extra time, it was Attilio Biasca, captain of the Swiss U-20 team and Canada’s junior team Halifax Mooseheads, who sealed the game. The two points against Finland, always medal contenders, didn’t go into the budget, but they were deserved.
The winning goal in overtime
The Swiss were behind only once, after 23 minutes and 0:1 by Konsta Kapanen. Lorenzo Canonica, who also plays in the Canadian Junior League, tied for third. SC Bern’s Jeremy Gabula showed that home work is also useful with the goals 2-1 after nearly five minutes in the final third. This lead only lasted three and a half minutes, otherwise it would have been three points.
The surprise success will have to be confirmed on Tuesday when Marco Baer’s side take on a weaker Latvian side. Another win would open the door to the target quarter-finalists.

Paulie Jack was not a hero nor did he become a millionaire in America. However, the Ambris goalkeeping coach has more to say on the 2022 Spengler Cup than most other hockey greats. A conversation with hockey’s “forgotten pioneer”, the first Swiss goalkeeper in the NHL and the tragic hero of the legendary 1999 play-off final.
In 1991 I was the first Swiss in the U-20 World Cup all-star team, in 1991 I was the first Swiss goalkeeper in the NHL draft, in 1995 I was the first Swiss in the NHL and in 2004 in the first Russian league. How far was Major Paulie Jakes from today’s goalkeeper game?
Paulie Jack: Not far, even if the goalkeeping game has changed. Perhaps more could have been achieved had I had more patience and determination in North America and not returned two years later. Which doesn’t change the fact that I’m fine with my hockey career. It is as good as it gets.
