2013 - Ufa, Russia

The third NHL lockout in two decades set lofty expectations for the 2013 Canadian World Junior team.

In both of the previous tournaments held during an NHL work stoppages (1995 and 2005) Canada iced teams stacked with the very best prospects and some NHL-ready talent and ran the table. Those teams would win gold after unbeaten tournaments and fuel debate over which was the greatest Canadian squad of all-time.

The third "Dream Team" would be captained by the Edmonton Oilers' Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and would feature returning top-10 draft prospects like Mark Scheifele, Jonathan Huberdeau and Ryan Strome alongside top picks from the 2012 Drafty such as Griffin Reinhart and Morgan Rielly.

Canada would put together a perfect opening round, despite being drawn into a tough group with arch-rivals Russia and the United States. After early wins over Slovakia and Germany, Canada would grind out a 2-1 victory over the U.S. before a convincing 4-1 win over the Russians earned Canada a bye into the semifinals.

There, however, the Americans would have their revenge. Displaying superb speed and puck movement, the Americans jumped out to a 4-0 lead through the first two periods and would win the game by a 5-1 final. The loss would match a Canadian record for worst medal-round defeat, earning the Americans a berth in the gold medal match against the defending champions from Sweden.

The Americans would build on their performance, beating Sweden 3-1 to win their second gold in four tournaments.

Canada, meanwhile, would fall to the Russians 6-5 in the bronze medal game as Valeri Nichushkin netted the overtime winner. The loss snapped Canada's streak of medaling at 14 straight World Junior tournaments.
