In the heat of a quiet, hockey-free summer, we are proud to introduce the next iteration of the International Hockey Lineal Championship – the Junior IHLC!
From time to time, TheIHLC.com will feature detailed recaps and boxscores of some of the most legendary games in international hockey history, considered to be “IHLC Classics.” Today, to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, we shine a light on Canada’s 2006 women’s Olympic Gold victory, Canada’s second of four (and counting) Olympic titles.
It seemed only appropriate that fears of another repeat women’s Gold Medal Game between bitter rivals Canada and the U.S. would occur for a third straight Olympics – but thanks to the heroics of Sweden relegating the Americans to the bronze medal game, for the first time a new contender emerged.
But there would be no repeat heroics, as Canada pounded Tre Kronor 4-1 to win their second straight Olympic Gold Medal, and to cap off a perfect Olympics with the International Hockey Lineal Championship.
The Hockey Hall Of Fame today announced the newest members that will join as the Class of 2017 on November 13, with Teemu Selänne, Paul Kariya, Mark Recchi, Dave Andreychuk and Danielle Goyette entering the Hall, bringing their professional and international accolades (along with their International Hockey Lineal Championship reigns) to Toronto.

The KHL tonight handed out its awards to the best players in the league at the KHL IX ceremony in Moscow, with Metallurg star Sergei Mozyakin once again dominating the ceremony, taking home four trophies (including league MVP), along with nine other IHLC winners from four countries also winning awards.
