The under 18 Russian national team will face the Czech Republic in the semi-final of the 2019 World Junior Challenge.

The Russians completed the group stage with an emphatic 2:7 loss to the USA.

Following their win against Russians, the Czech Republic lost 4:5 in overtime to the USA, before beating Canada West 3:2 and Canada East 6:4.
