Team Canada has pulled off a stunning comeback against Team USA in a classic showdown at the U18 World Championship. Despite the Americans initially dictating the game, the story shifted dramatically when Trevor Connelly took a 5-min major misconduct penalty.

This is Team Canada's 5th gold medal since 1999.

Team Canada has stunned Team USA in a come-from-behind classic at the U18 Worlds. The Americans dictated early, but Trevor Connelly's costly five-minute misconduct is the story. Here's the scene.

Despite the major penalty that gave Team Canada a major advantage, Gavin McKenna's performance is one for the history books. The 16-year-old has a hat trick and an assist to help defeat USA 6-4.

Gavin McKenna is a literal cheat code

Goalkeeper Carter George let in 4 goals but secured the victory with 31 saves in the nail biter.

There is ongoing debate if the USA program has succeeded Canada, but with this win, Canada still shows to be top dogs in the junior arena.
