The quarterfinals of the 2023 World Juniors begin today, and the United States draws a matchup against Germany.
The USA finished first in Group B with nine points, the second consecutive tournament that the country earned the top spot in its group. The Americans won three out of their four group play games, finishing with nine points in the standings.
Germany earned a spot in the quarterfinals by defeating Latvia in its final preliminary round match. It was the country’s only victory in Group A play, as the Germans finished as the No. 4 seed.

In the summer, the USA also earned the No. 1 spot in its group, but were knocked off in the quarterfinals by Czechia. The team has its eyes on a medal after missing the podium at the 2022 tournament, and a quarterfinal win would guarantee the USA a shot at playing for either gold, silver or bronze.
