auf wiedersehen to the top tier of the world junior championship after they were relegated on Saturday night.The Germans will be saying
Switzerland sent Germany packing to Group A Division I by sweeping their best-of-three series with a 5-2 victory. The Swiss had come close to making the quarter-finals but were undone by a shootout loss to Denmark. The Danes ended up advancing, only to lose 8-0 to Team Canada on Friday night.
“The difference between the quarter-finals and the relegation round was one goal – the overtime shootout loss to Denmark,” said Swiss head coach John Fust. “It’s invaluable experience. We have the youngest team in the tournament; we’re a core of (1996 and ’97 birth years). There’s no other team that had as few (19-year-old’s) as us and it was a bit of a gamble, but that’s the best we have for such a small nation.”
