2012 - Edmonton/Calgary, Canada

He may have had a medal of a lesser colour around his neck, but Mark Visentin could talk about his performance with pride this time.

The goaltender was the feel-good story behind Canada's bronze-medal win at the world junior hockey championship.

Visentin stopped a penalty shot in the second period, executed a behind-the-back glove save in the third period and made 27 saves in a 4-0 shutout of Finland.

Visentin was in goal in last year's final in Buffalo, N.Y., where Russia scored five times in the third period to beat Canada 5-3 for gold.

While Visentin wasn't entirely to blame for Canada' collapse there, he's had to wear it for a year. The Niagara IceDog was constantly reminded of it as this year's tournament approached.

After his final game this year, he could feel good knowing he helped Canada extend a streak of winning a medal in this tournament to 14 straight years.

Sweden beat Russia 1-0 in overtime to win the gold medal. It was the country's first title since 1981 and just their second in the history of the tournament. Ottawa Senators prospect Mika Zinbanejad scored the overtime winner at 10:09.

Canada had played in the tournament final every year for the previous decade and had won five gold in that span. The Canadians were playing for bronze for the first time since winning it in Russia in 2001.
