If there’s a goaltending crisis in Canada at the world junior level, Steve Spott doesn’t want to hear it.

“This is a team sport,” Canada’s head coach said on Tuesday. “You win as a hockey club and you lose as a hockey club. It’s difficult to put the last three world juniors on goalies. I don’t think it’s fair.”

Canada is looking for its first world junior gold since 2009. Bronze was the consolation prize last year and silver in the two previous winters.
