He was Team Canada’s 13th forward, used sparingly throughout the tournament, and was the only forward on his team without a goal.

But in the dying minutes of the gold medal game, Tyler Steenbergen scored the biggest goal of all, the golden goal to win the 2018 World Junior Hockey Championship in Buffalo.

Since then it’s been quite a week for the Sylvan Lake native and Swift Current Broncos star.

Thankfully, he was able to enjoy a few days at home with family and friends before heading back to Speedy Creek for the WHL stretch run.

Steenbergen is obviously quite proud to have scored the gold medal-winning goal for Canada, and his hometown is even more proud of him, as you’ll see in our exclusive interview feature.
