The United States made history by becoming the first nation to win third successive World Para Ice Hockey Championships titles courtesy of a stunning 6-1 victory over hosts Canada.

Almost 3,000 fans packed into the Moose Jaw Events Centre to see the American team sweep the home favourites aside in clinical fashion.

It was the sixth consecutive final between the two countries and hopes of a first Canadian triumph since 2017 were blown away by the reigning Paralympic champions.

Joshua Misiewicz set the tone with a goal inside the first three minutes when deflecting a shot from captain Josh Pauls past Canadian goaltender Dominic Larocque at close range.

Declan Farmer soon doubled the US team’s lead before David Eustace netted just 83 seconds into the second period.

Jack Wallace, who assisted Eustace, then got on the scoresheet to make it 4-0 as Canada failed to make the most of power-play opportunities throughout the match.

Canadian captain Tyler McGregor finally got his team off the mark only for the US to strike twice to secure the title for the sixth time.

Noah Grove assisted Farmer for his ninth goal of the tournament with less than seven minutes to go before Kevin McKee completing the scoring.

"Any time we have an important kill, you’re going to see Farmer, [Brody] Roybal, Wallace and Pauls on the ice, and every one of them is a threat to do something individually," said US head coach David Hoff.

"That’s one thing we told the guys, just be patient and the chances will come.

"They definitely got some chances, and then we had David Eustace and Travis Dodson playing so well, too.

"When you have a so-called third line playing that well, it makes it so hard for teams to do very much against you."

The Czech Republic picked up their first-ever medal at a major event following their 3-2 win over Paralympic bronze medallists China.

Captain Radek Zelinka was the hero as he netted with just over a minute to go to seal a memorable victory.

"We are extremely happy," said Czech player Michal Geier.

"We put a lot of work to this World Championships and to the preparation.

"The whole season was very tough for us.

"We are very grateful for all Czech Para ice hockey for this medal in Pool A, a first medal for us."
