Weber wins gold in Sochi

Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber has won his second consecutive gold medal with Canada. Weber and Team Canada defeated Sweden 3-0 to be awarded Olympic gold. The 28 year old was a big part of Canada's success in scoring and defending. He tied Drew Doughty in scoring with 6 points (3 goals, 3 assists). Canada was dominant througout the whole tournament, never trailing and only allowing three goals against.

Congratulations Shea for winning yet another gold medal!

Weber's defensive partner Roman Josi represented Switzerland for the first time in his career. Alongside Josi on the Swiss national team was forward Simon Moser. Josi and Moser didn't have as good of a tournament as they once hoped after a silver medal in the 2013 IIHF World Championship. Switzerland was upset by Latvia, 3-1, in a qualification match, but defeated them in a preliminary match 1-0 thanks to a goal by Simon Moser off a Latvian defender's skate 8 seconds left in the game.

Although that would be Moser's only goal in the four matches, his tally was only one of three for the Swiss. Josi did not record a point.

Team USA and Nashville Predators general manager David Poile's construction of the team has been put into question. Poile and the US men's team walk away without a mdedal, finishing in fourth place.
