It’s another golden finish for Forest’s Tyler McGregor.

Canada opened up a 4-0 second period lead when McGregor scored twice in a 13 second span.
The gold medal game capped off an outstanding tournament for McGregor, who lead all scorers with 12 goals.
Canada’s only loss at the tournament was a 2-1 decision to the US during round robin play.
