In ice hockey, the Czech team lost against the US 0:3 and failed to take the Bronze position in the World Championships. Nick Bonino opened the scoring in the 8th minute with Trevor Lewis adding a second in the last minute of the period. The Czechs stepped up the pressure in the second period but failed to convert their chances despite at one stage having a four minute power play. Against the run of play Charlie Coyle added a third goal in the 40th minute. The Czech team therefore finished in fourth position, the same place as last year in Minsk.
